Day 2 on the Canterbury pilgrimage ... Smelly resting

After giving Smelly a check-over, before embarking on the next leg of the Museum of the Horse trip to Canterbury, Caroline Baldock has decided to rest him.

Yesterday went really well, Smelly handled all the trip without any problems and was in good shape when he got to Turvins Farm for the overnight stay.  However, the next leg of the trip means a lot more road riding and Caroline felt that it would be too much for him. 

"We were all so excited about the journey and of course disappointed not to be doing the full trip, but the wellbeing of my horse is my priority," said Caroline.

The 'pilgrims' will definitely be riding into Canterbury from Chilham on Sunday 26 September. 

We will update you all on Smelly's progress tomorrow.
