Scottish Endurance Riding Club, Blairgowrie 2010.

Yesterday I went along to my second pleasure ride along with my mum and friend Lara. This ride was another 20k and took place in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland. My mum took her 5 year old mare, silke who had also been to our first pleasure ride in Scone. I took my 4 year old gelding, Tjipke this time to see how he would like it and I was very pleased with him, he used to be quite a nervous horse but is now a big brave boy whom I trust entirely. He did get a little excited while standing for the vet so his heart rate was higher than I would have liked but thank goodness he had calmed down for the vet check at the end of the ride and was much lower than when we started. My friend Lara took Tanja who is my 4 year old mare (currently advertised for sale), as I expected Tanja also took to this event very well as she is a confident girl under saddle, not easily spooked and so is ideal for pleasure rides.

The route was well thought out, lots of softer ground for cantering or trotting and not much road work at all. The weather was lovely, which is great as it would not be pleasant getting caught in rain in the middle of a 20k ride! Once again my experience of pleasure rides has been a good one and I am looking forward to doing some more in the future.
