What you might see here is a photo of a girl smiling next to her horse. But I know the emotion behind this photo isn't quite what it seems.
On the 26th July 2021, I made the kneejerk reaction to leave Ashtree and join Flecknoe Farm Stud. It was not an easy move, I was utterly cut up. It really was a very difficult time. I felt that more hacking would be suited to Bodie after riding up the main road had started to become busy again post Covid lockdown and I appreciated how quiet the road was prior to this.
I was moving from a routine and a yard that I knew well, to being the new kid on the block and I felt and still at times feel utterly lost.
