That programme was brilliant!  She said it exactly how it was, well that's how it was for me and my poor old mum taking us to events most weekends leaving poor old dad at home on his own most sundays (I think he rather enjoyed it actually!).  I still pretend I'm riding at Badminton .  Like she said, you can still be very skilled, but if you haven't got the nerve, well that's sort of it competition-wise.

Very much looking forward to next weeks .....................

Re: "Back in the saddle"

As much as i love anything with a horse in it (yes i am that easily pleased! ) watching this program i was actually left feeling a bit disappointed. As much as i admire Jennifer Saunders for taking up the challenge i was left feeling as if the first half of this program was designed purely as a trip down memory lane rather than what the program was advertised to be- a documentary following her preparations to enter a grassroots event.  I would have liked to have seen more of her trying to improve her skills with more lessons with Tim Stockdale and Piggy French. But maybe thats just me. If ITV had marketed the program differently maybe i wouldn't have felt that way. I'll reserve judgement until i have seen the whole thing though.

 I really enjoyed watching this, shame it couldn't be a longer series.  Even Mum who is not horsey at all even watched it and I caught her today reading my horse and hound, go Jennifer go!  The pony club bit I thought was funny when that girl fell off and her mum just pulled her up and plonked her back on her pony, that says it all really doesn't it?  Roll on next week.

I think that Jennifer has guts !! I would'nt do it as i'm a complete wuss when it comes to jumping anything ! Mind you though she did have two wonderful horses who certainly knew their jobs. I might actually think about it on either one of those lol.

. We saw her with a couple of horses at the start and we saw her mucking out the dun's box. She said she hadn't ridden much lately but I was left with the impression that they were her horses. It was all a bit quick and I guess I misunderstood.

 


 

Richard, I'm not sure if they still do, but she and her family used to live reasonably close to us here in Devon, and there are 3 daughters who all ride (or did do) so it may have been one of theirs you saw her mucking out.
