After few quiet weeks at home we are ready as we can be for our next event of the season at Goring Heath...
We have had a few quiet weeks at home after our first event of the season at Tweseldown at the beginning of March.
We have been training incerdibly hard on the flat with Mary Coleman. I have had some lessons with her on both horses recently and they are both going fantastically....she even said we may even make a dressage horse out of roxie yet! Milli is schooling well too but has now learnt to buck, and she does rather big bucks too!! Mary had said not to tell of off too much as she has such a huge canter and the bucks may be because she is getting cross with herself as she doesn't know what to do with her legs! Bles her!
After our three fences down in the showjumping at Tweseldown I have been doing lots of grid work with Roxie. I keep watching the video back to see if I go forward too early or if the stride isn't quite right, but I am pleased to say my riding was good so she's just got to learn to pick her feet up in time! If any of you reading this know of any excercises to help make our horses more carefull, please share and comment at the bottome!! :)
This week, in preparation for Goring Heath, I have had another lesson with Mary on Roxie and she worked fantastically! Fingers crossed she goes as well at the event! I have showjumped Roxie again tonight, doing more grid work exercises and she jumped superbly, so it seems to have worked :)
Next Blog will have a full report on how it all goes at Goring Heath and more......
So, until next time,
Keep Calm & Canter On
