Having spent the day attending a business meeting in London, I had the opportunity to test out a recent purchase, namely a Vodaphone 3G Broadband Data Card. I have to say I’m really impressed with the speeds one can attain using this card - I wish I had bought it sooner! I managed to access the internet at a speed of 1.8mbps from London Victoria Train station and was able to happily surf all the way on the train home. Now I should be able to blog, check e-mails or surf from anywhere in the country.
A week after I did my first foxhunt with Harvard Hounds it was time for opening hunt at Misty River Hounds, the hunt that my barn is very involved with. We had a much larger group attending and my mom and brother decided to tag along and ride the tallyho wagon so that they could watch.
When I bought Jabbar, I knew that he was going to be very green in the arena. His previous owner didn't take lessons or do shows - he was a foxhunter. I've done my share of lessons, I've done some shows, and I've done plenty of trail rides, but I've never foxhunted. Most of the adult riders at my barn participate with the barn owner Diane and her assistant trainer Sally being very involved with Misty River Hounds, one of the local hunts. So I had plenty of opportunity to get involved if I wanted to, I just wasn't sure I wanted to.
