    Just had what might be my last riding lesson for a while, got to eke out the budget a bit. But I got to ride my favourite pony, Puzzle, a lovely piebald mare, about 14 hands, and bless her, she was as good as gold for me today (sometimes, she's a bit willfull, well, she takes advantage of my ineptitude, like all horses do, but today I felt good...) and I had a great time (If I don't do well, I come away feeling useless). Dunno when I'll go again, it'll depend on getting a job, and one that allows me to have Tuesday afternoons off to go with my mates.;)

    Thinking about it, that's pretty much my one and only luxury (unless you count the odd M and S sandwich and knitting wool and owning more than one bike, none of which are very valuable) Ho hum...

    Still, I got a lift out with Simon, so I got a ride in the MGB again:biggrin:

    Right, tomorrow is CV and letter day. So I may stay at home to avoid you lot distracting me... Tsk! :rolleyes:

    If I knew how to post a picture I could post one of the latest member of the Noodley 'family' for you to adopt in a "horse on the forum" kind of way. :rolleyes:

    There you go, here's Noodley horse. She is called Minstrel, Minnie for short as I did not fancy walking up the field shouting something which could be mistaken for "Menstrual"

    This is completely off topic, or a completely "off" topic, but of particular interest to people who like pachyderms. Today I saw some paper that was recycled from elephant poo. :biggrin::biggrin: (ellypoo).

    Arch,
    I hope you will still carry polo mints and sugar cubes for any fortunate equine friends you meet in your travels.

    If you think lessons are expensive, try ownership......
