Tropical Wednesday

Another day in 30C. Berkshire, however, has that little more breeze than London not to mention the shady, cooler woodlands to hack in!

Pic. above: The flora seems to love current climate as the bridleways are rather overgrown!

Had a very pleasant start to the day with a slow pace hack. The bridleways are getting really overgrown and flies are quite aggressive of late but still, it was so relaxing. 
I came back just in time for a little chat with a rider who brought her own horse for a XC lesson. She wanted a confidence giving run so I worked through some very simple exercises to test her control of the horse and off we went into the woods. She rode really well and will be back for more lessons with me. 
Took another horse out for a hack after lunch, he's an ex-race horse and is just having chilling out time, being lunged and hacked out. 

Sunshine is overwhelming. 

P.S. I found something interesting some of you may want to read too: http://www.williammicklem.com/articles.html
