Last Month

August recap
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. First of all, I'd like to apologise for the lack of posts last week. The last few days were a bit crazy and I had no time or energy to work on my blog. Things should get back to normal and I'll back to posting regularly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

If you follow me on Instagram, you many have seen a few snaps that I posted from an equestrian camp in Poland. I really wanted to try horse riding so when I found out that my sister will be attending an equestrian camp this summer, I decided to join her. She went on one last year and absolutely loved it so I thought that it would be a great opportunity for me try something I always wanted to do. My 17-year-old sister wasn't initially impressed with my plans and tried to dissuade me by saying that the camp will be full of kids. Although other campers were about 11-16 years old, it didn't bother me as I have teenage siblings myself. 

As I had no prior experience of horse riding, during my first day I learnt how to clean the horse and saddle it. I then tried to master the basic principles of horse riding such as mounting, dismounting, holding the reins, walking, basic turns, rising & sitting trots. Later on during my holiday, I explored local terrains with fellow riders. The horse I was riding on seemed like a perfect fit for me as he was quite stubborn and temperamental like myself. At times he was quite eager to canter but luckily I didn't fall off! 

Instead of sharing a few snaps with you here, I thought it would be a good idea to make a short clip to summarise my holiday. Unfortunately, technology wasn't on my side and the video didn't turn out how I wanted it to be. Something weird happened to its quality when I uploaded the clip to Blogger so you need to watch it in a small format for the best experience. I'm really sorry about that!
