What a day! It was our first solo outing to a comp and I couldn’t have asked for more. The day started chilly…no..freezing! Up at 6 and on the road by 8 to attend the Gipping Riding Society unaffiliated dressage. I’d decided to stick to intro for both tests as our canter still needs work […]Read More A Matching Pair!
Well..you just cant shut me up this week can you?! Yesterday saw us heading to Grove Farm for a showjump clinic with Hayley. I was late, flustered and BJ was a mess straight from the field, but we had a good time. The aim was to remember how to piece together a course and ride […]Read More More Showjumping Clinics
Well what a day! It’s been pretty awesome. The afternoon started measuring up the boy for a custom made noseband, a lil thicker and a different buckle to keep him more comfortable and looking sexy as ever. Then we toodled up to the jump field to work in and pop a few jumps before filming […]Read More Made to Measure Bridles, Online Dressage and Hacking fun!
Do you ever get those days when everything planned just doesnt appeal to you? That’s what happened today! I was due to head to my monthly peer group meeting but woke up with a niggling head ache and a drive to get in the salon and get a few bits sorted I’d neglected. Having cleared […]Read More Frillies, Dressage Practice…and a sneaky jump!
Yesterday we ventured out Stowmarket way for a clinic with Jonathan Allinson. I’ll admit I didn’t really know what to expect, but he was recommended to me by another livery (who was also going to the clinic) so I figured I’d go along and see how we got on. The boy loaded beautifully, we’ve been […]Read More Jonathan Allinson Clinic
The sun was shining, the birds were tweeting, the sky was skying! A perfect day to go and play in the jump field, and casually mention to Hayley that there are also cross country jumps in the next field… So here we go, an impromptu cross country training day! Now, hands up…I’m not wearing a […]Read More Impromptu Cross Country
So, I’m starting something new for me. I’m going to share some of our daily activities like schooling, lunging etc. I’m trying to keep myself focused from the high of Sunday and build on what the judges say, so by next month there will hopefully be an improvement in our performance. Today we had a […]Read More Daily Ramblings 26/03/19
In all the excitement of the dressage I’ve been a lil slack sharing our Side Saddle lesson last week. It’s been on my wishlist for years to try it and I promised myself when I bought BJ that we’d start within a year, well, 5 months in and we had a lesson booked. I’m very […]Read More Side Saddle Playtime!
I got all emotional…find out why…Read More Our Debut
Yesterday BJ had another playdate with his favourite gal Nellie, this time in the jump field! After a taster of jumping in our lesson Thursday I wanted to play again, but this time without the security of a fence one side! He was such a good boy, we kept it nice and slow and steady […]Read More Jumping Playdate with Miss Nellie
