Blind Sonny gets his wish

Sonny hated the other horses being taken out on a hack without him. He manages his blindness really well but misses being one of the ridden horses.
On Saturday Carol decided to put her faith in the relationship she has with him and with support on the ground in case of any problems Carol rode him. He was amazing and once she was on him he didn’t seem to be blind at all.
A wonderful example of trust between a horse and rider. Doesn’t he look happy?
