Kids will have fun

The YD and her copain Ash have been here a month now.  Their sickly Irish pallor has finally been replaced by a healthy glow.

They’ve been enjoying Provençal life…

and taming local wildlife.

Finally, they took to the saddle – Ash’s first time!

I promised I’d clone out the leadrope. I lied.

He did very well, but I led him most of the way, apart from when taking photos.  DSCN4001

After a little trek we went into the arena and I gave him a mini lunge lesson.  He learned how to post!! Woohoo!

And the YD played with Aero :

Nice to see this pair having fun together again!

I think they’re having a good time, despite the fact that they are living in the garden shed.

And they’ll have replenished their Vitamin D stores nicely to set them up for the Irish winter.

  1. Aw – that wonderful ‘first time feeling’ of sitting on a horse – can’t beat it, I still remember mine several (ahem!) years ago. No rain though – does this mean your theory has been disproved or does it only apply to short term visitors 😉

  2. I’m sure they’re having a brilliant time! How lucky is your daughter to have parents that live in Provence!
