"To do my homework and achieve at least 60% of how it was with Tom"
Well we achieved that and more and I made sure I smiled.
It wasn't until I left the arena that I realised how long it has been since I walked out of a schooling session not worrying will he / will he not be ok.
There was the period of rehab. which was always a worry if the legs would take the strain, then would he stand up to cantering?
It was so nice to walk out feeling I had my boy back :-)
