Went to the RDA today

Post by Florence24 on Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:58 am

Was brilliant, can't wait til next week!!

I thought a lot of the kids would just need someone to lead the pony, but that was quite ignorant. The kids I met today can't talk, not like they don't know how but they struggle to communicate in general and so I was with a girl being lead on a pony, and me and one of the carer's walked either side of her holding her legs in place so that she didn't bring them up or dig them in.

The lesson was spent steering through cones and trying to choose certain colours to go through, lots don't know what colour is what or exactly what we're doing but everyone natters away to each other about it anyway I love you

Really loved it, can't wait til next week. I hate to say it, but I think I've got the horsey bug back!! Rolling Eyes flower

Hahaha most horses/ponies just stand there and look around anyway, they don't run at you, steal your shoes then go off chewing them like cows Rolling Eyes Embarassed

It was well good though, gonna be bored all day want to go back!

my brother did, when he was about 8 or 9, right on his belly. Mum had to write a note to his PE teacher explaining what happened because it looked like he's been really badly beaten!

Oh gosh I bet that was sore! All bruised I'm guessing? Ouch what a git of a horse to do that Surprised

I know some who were classed as a little nippy. You'd be bent over picking their feet out and they might nip your bum! Never happened to me mind! My horse used to pretend to do it to wind you up little sod. You'd be bent over and sometimes your shirt went up and exposed your lower back. He'd rub his nose lightly on your back just to scare you Razz
