hills

decided to take a look around the hills today. swifty came out with me and walked with us to the back paddock so that I didn't have to get off to open each of the electric fences. silviapples was good - not too spooky, but didn't much like the hills - I think she thought they were hard work. So we just went up to the top once and then back down. It will be good for her to do more work in that back paddock so she can learn to balance on the hills and get hill fit.

I also did some flatwork and she was feeling nice and supple and going forward quite well, and poor swifty picked up poo. Did a bit of loading practise which silvi was absolutely perfect for - walked straight on. a nice laid back afternoon really.
