Another meet, another lost shoe. Having gone home early twice already this season with loose shoes it was no surprise to leave today clutching a hind shoe. With two others also returning home on three shoes I think it was a case of transitional ground.
The rat catcher is packed away (read: flung on the floor somewhere), the plaiting bands and tail cotton are out, and the mud of opening meet has been brushed off. That’s right; the season is open, tally ho!
You will note the #1 in the title. That is because, lucky as I am to subscribe to two packs, I have two opening meets. Saturday’s was the turn of the Carmarthenshire, with a splendid parade of over eighty riders.
Hunting diary is BACK with a whole new cast list and a new series of locations to get involved in! Truth is I did make it out two weeks ago, but Bluey had a loose shoe so we didn’t see much.
