Has it really been one year already?

Exactly one year ago I sat on Sargon for the first time. After about two years in which I was at the stables frequently but never in the saddle I was given the opportunity to ride and care for this pretty, yet mischievous arabian gelding. I was told that he isn’t that easy to handle and spooks easily but I think the two of us get along quite well.

In the year together we’ve had a lot of great experiences. We’ve trained for a little fun tournament at the stables, we’ve learned together and accomplished a lot. However, we’ve also had some great rides through the forest – on late summer evenings or on sunny winter mornings, through meters of fluffy snow. We’ve had our ups and downs, sure (like that one time when he tripped and we both fell together), but I’m just so glad and happy to have been given this opportunity.

Now that we’ve finally left this long winter behind us we can start to train again, days are longer and filled with more possibilities – we know each other better and I couldn’t be more excited.

[Above and below: we’ve had lots of snow and it provided us with our very own winter wonderland.]

    • Yeah I’m quite fond of them. We had a lovely and active summer, a beautiful autumn, a very strong (and long) winter and spring’s only just beginning…
      I’m looking forward to taking a lot more pictures :)

Leave some love (if you want to).
