Keeping Motivated When You’re Out Of The Saddle
Keeping motivated when you’re out of the saddle Early December, my dork, sorry, I mean my horse, Zeus, decided it would be fun to gallop head on into a tree. This was his first day in the herd paddock of a new place we’d moved to. He hit it so hard that he broke the branch after deciding to go for a hoon with the other OTTB.

From Little Things- An update blog from Fiona
