This year I finally accepted that my favourite, light weight, Mark Todd jacket I have had for 15 years just wasn’t waterproof anymore. I knew I needed to replace it. I have plenty of thicker coats, but I was really lacking a light weight, waterproof coat with a hood. I had also just got a lovely new Le Mieux coat I wanted to keep clean for work/going out.

We had gotten up to 35mins of walk and starting to introduce trot. Other than being a bit weak and wobberly from the time off, he was feeling great. But in true Scottie style, he had to throw a curveball in there. At the weekend Scottie moved fields to get a bit more grass and be with his best friend ..read more
