  1. Congratulations Clare! I also wanted to be a veterinarian when I was young – my grades were not good enough in math or some of the sciences (chemistry in particular). I also used to go horseback riding … went for years until I went with a friend one time and she was small and had a small horse and I had a larger horse and my horse spooked her horse and it reared and she got kicked in the calf – I’ve never gone again. But I loved it back in the day! Here was me back in the day and does this horse look a little disinterested?

    1. When I went horse riding I never thought about the possible dangers but now, if I went again, I think I’d be more aware. I did enjoy it though and have sometimes thought about doing it again, even just for a one-off. That’s a fabulous picture of you and the horse, he does have a funny expression on his face. Maybe he is disinterested or perhaps daydreaming, maybe of eating apples?! 🙂

      1. When we were younger, we never had worries about anything did we – we were kind of fearless. We left the worrying to our parents. I never thought of the dangers either Clare. I used to go to a small stable just across the border in Canada. They had a nice trail and most of the horses were so gentle, you didn’t really need to hang on. They didn’t even have a guide on the trail – pretty sure the horses knew their own way along the trail and back for their oats. But that one time, my friend, who had never been riding before, was given a mare who was back on the trail her first day after “maternity leave” … the owner said later that the mare may have been a little more skittish than normal and my horse spooked hers. It was scary and her leg swelled up and she had a very bad bruise – luckily nothing was broken. You’re right – this horse looked more like daydreaming with its eyes closed – yummy apples back at the stall. 🙂
