First Ride

Joe has his first ride on Hammer on Sunday...well it was more of a 'sit' really. We need to find a better fitting saddle before we attempt to do too much. And without finding Joe a suitable helmet yet, we felt it was too much risk to do more that a bit of a walk around the paddock.

Hammer behaved perfectly, especially considering the new grass, and 2 weeks off! They seem to be forming a bond very quickly, with Joe already able to cover/uncover, groom, pick out feet, lead, back up etc, with only a couple of visits, and Sunday being his first time handling him properly.

Hopefully next weekend brings us more luck with saddles/helmets!
