Today I went back to help at the yard.
I mucked out the stable after being taught how to do so. I then groomed the horse and changed her water. Later on, I helped to put on her saddle and bridle for her to be ridden and throughout the day I gave (and was given) a lot of affection to/by the horse.
I also learnt about some of the medical consequences of weight gain in horses such as equine metabolic syndrome and laminitis and how these affect the horse's lifestyle.
Below is a picture of Melody (the horse I help with).
