We had a wonderful time on holiday in London; visiting with our son, taking a tour of some very interesting “Iconic Abodes” and just being in the great city of London. Yes, there was a bomb on the Underground and luckily it did not explode with it’s full force. But we still travelled on the “Tube”. I lived in London during the IRA campaign in the 1970’s so I know that London is a mighty resilient city and we would not be put off Tube travel either. But it was nice to get home.
I went to the barn and Biasini was out in his paddock. We have had a sudden blast of hot and humid weather which has produced a hatching of flies so he has his fly sheet on. I called to him and he came over to the gate and seemed to be happy to see me. I was certainly happy to see him!
I was still on British time and had woken up at about 3am so I felt it was not the day for any real dressage work. So I opted to go for a trail ride through the woods. Although the temperature is well above average for September there are fall colors appearing with the Sumach changing to red and the Goldenrod in bloom at the sides of the trail.
Once we had done the loop in the woods we went up the hill and into the forest. On our way we met up with Erin who was riding Anton. We took a trail through the forest.
The forest is another world. Erin commented that when you are riding in the forest it always seems like the best possible thing to do. And I know the horses would agree!
