My favourite thing to do outside of horses is reading about them, oh and eating chocolate. Does that count?

These are some of my absolute favourite equestrian authors and books.

Day 29 of The Horse Riders Challenge - Equestrian Selfie

I’m not normally great at selfies but very occasionally the light is good, I hit the right angle and Nonie isn’t trying to eat my phone.

Day 30

The prompt for day 30 to give a shout out to someone whose work you admire lent itself perfectly to the stunning work of Charlie Macksey. I love the words written in these sketches and the messages they send.

Day 31 (the final day) of #thehorseriderschallenge is to share your win of the month. We’ve had some great moments in our riding and work this month, but we’ve also had some challenges. The learning for me is that as I ask Nonie for more bend through her body in the lateral work I need to be careful that she doesn’t just give me neck bend and pop her shoulder out. Finding this balance is taking time and of course we both need to develop additional strength. We’ve also started playing with the half steps again to help improve Nonie’s sitting and engagement. And they are doing their job Nonie’s trot feels 👌 afterwards. What are you proud of this month?? #thesandarenaballerina #rootd #wilsonequestrian #equestrianblogger #asmarequestrian #samshield #warmbloodsofinstagram #equestrianstyle
