The highs and lows

My lovely homebred Oreo has taken to ridden life so well but has a badly bruised sole so I’ve decided to turn him back out until September time, frustrating as I would have wanted to do a bit more with him but it’s the best thing for him and being only 3 he doesn’t need to be in working yet. 

On the plus side all the other liveries had a super week excelling themselves in their respective spheres of training!

Colin is hacking out really well and doing some basic schooling and Snoozy has blown me away with her new attitude to work and new questions. We had our first outing from the yard Wednesday and even popped some small cross poles whilst there. Colin and her then enjoyed a few days to relax and process their week of work. I choose to give my youngsters frequent breaks as I definitely feel an improvement for the better when they are next worked. Even if it’s just a few days in the field it really helps I feel.

The weekend saw me make the trip to Ireland to watch Outlaw and Catherine jump their first 1.20m class at the Cavan HPI, I am really proud of them both and really enjoy being no.1 fan and owner 🥰🇨🇮🦄

After Maisie’s super efforts at Chepstow BE she enjoyed some hacking and lunging. There’s lots in the diary for her including dressage on the 14th of July and Howick BE at the end of July as well as some dressage training to try and get that elusive sub 30 score. 

This week sees some new liveries arrive, a clinic Saturday and dressage Sunday!
