I have joined a riding club!
Well, this is a hark back to the pony club days! Turning up - probably wearing the wrong things and knowing not a soul. As I am now older (and care less) it doesn't seem to matter so much, and they are all super friendly (shout out for Wessex Gold). Two rallies later - both jumping, flat can come later..., things are (mainly) going well - the most memorable comments are: firstly 'don't adopt the embryo position', and secondly 'pretend someone is holding your bra straps' - all in an attempt to make me not crouch in terror!! So, onwards ... (have got a video of XC but not sure I can upload it!)
