Mummy, it’s too cold to ride
Whaaat! We have jodhpurs and a hat and a funky silk with a pompom on and now it’s too cold! We are not a family of fair weather riders.
Then came the tears. Yes it is cold, in fact it is freezing, ask any of the mums standing outside the arena watching. The fact that Maisie refused to wear a coat was perhaps a big factor in her lack of warmth. To be fair her coat is too small to go over the body protector and too big to go under. I think I need to do a bit of research on riding coats – I will put a review up for you soon (hopefully before the warm weather comes!). Of course she still wants to groom the ponies and muck out. I have said that she isn’t giving up but I might have to look into lessons during the day when it is a bit warmer.
