We woke up at 8:40 and did the everyday tasks: made our bed, put on our horse riding clothes and went to eat breakfast but today is a special day: it’s Judith’s birthday! We ate the same things that we did yesterday. We started the day at the stables by taking Brooke and Buster from the paddock. Brooke broke the barrier to go near the works when there is a lot of grass so we needed to walk more to search for her. We prepared these ponies and Rubix before the lesson of Margaux, Charlotte and Clement. They jumped today. We did cavaletti, oxer and a cross. We did the same as yesterday at the end of the lesson, we did a little walk with our ponies and horses. They are so happy and sad because we love jumping but it was our last horse riding lesson. Louison and Judith have another one tomorrow because they didn’t ride yesterday. During our lesson, they brushed Swing, Harry, George and Jack and they searched for horses at the paddock. We just took care of our ponies and went eating. We chilled and did our English lesson about films, horses and Jennifer Lawrence. Outside, we prepared Rubix and George. Charlotte did a tail braid on Rubix. They started the lesson and did ground bars. During this time, Charlotte, Clement and Margaux brushed the ponies, Annie and Archie.
