Soggy Saturday

The view between rain showers
Stunning view from the top of the valley

I had to go to Plymouth earlier so on my way, I called into one of my favourite tack shops to replace a couple of buckets my dear horse annihilated a couple of weeks ago and I accidentally (on purpose!) bought Dixie a lovely expensive new fleece rug! 
Team GBR fleece
She loves it and it's so snuggy and warm! It's also a Team GBR one so it's super cool.
When I got back I stupidly sat down and put Badminton Horse Trials on the telly and it was so hard to tear myself away to take the dogs for a walk!
Hiding in the barley
My puppies being impatient!
We had a nice walk except we got caught in a horrible ice cold rain shower. I got brain freeze and had to stuff Dixie down my jacket as she hates rain and wind!
Ominous clouds....
We have spent the rest of the afternoon in front of the fire watching Badders. 
It was so exciting - a challenging course that caught lots of people out and there were so many fallers, hairy moments and some superb riding and stickability! I haven't been to Badders for years and I hope to go next year with a friend. 

Didn't ride the ponies today because of the weather but I did get chased around the field until I scratched BH's bottom! 
That horse is so special!!
