The main job this month is getting this little horse ready for week long horse riding holidays next season. This little horse loves adventure rides, and I have been riding him all over Tuscany, a great winter playground to get a horse fit and sound.
Its cold this time of the year, with snow-capped mountains near massa hovering over us. The sunsets at this time of the year are some of the most intense -hues of blue,violet and red light up the sky.
I have been riding this horse out for the past two weeks. Hes a bit funny with a bit, but works perfectly in a bosal. He is brave, surefooted and very comfortable outside, and aside from the terrible weather, he has been a lot of fun to ride out and about with.
Arabian horses are always a little special, theres something almost dog like about their personalities… and little Shakir is no exception.
