Since the horsescotland induction day my horse Ala has had a holiday to rest and put on some weight while I practised walking related distances. I was delighted to find that I had been given a measuring tape for Christmas! Well, maybe delighted is a slight exaggeration but nevertheless it was exactly what I needed to measure out 60ft which I walk most days. This is to help me work towards walking distances becoming second nature.
Ala has come back after her holiday feeling very fresh and looking better than ever. She wasn't fit enough to take down to the most recent horsescotland training day but I still attended on foot. It was great to listen to both Erik and John coaching and I have picked up some new exercises to try at home.
Physio and fitness was great with my fitness and strength having increased over December despite the excessive amounts of cheese that was consumed over the Christmas period.
I will now be carrying out my new physio and fitness exercises while fittening Ala up in preparation for the upcoming season. 2017, fingers crossed it's a good one.
