We haven't been out competing much over the last few weeks because of the weather but we have still been doing lots of hacking and training when the schools not frozen! I am also incredibly busy coaching and riding Clients horses at the moment which is good.
Last weekend I went to a British Dressage training session with Leanne Wall. I took Roxie and got some really good work out of her and Leanne has given us plenty to work on before the next session in January. I was very pleased when she said that Roxie has the potential and is more than capable of going advanced / 4* but i've just got to be braver and ask more of her so with our training programme changed slightly we are working harder than ever getting ready for the start of the season in a few months time.
Milli is working very well and is STILL growing! She's going to be enormous by the time she stops growing! She had her first set of back shoes on the other day so is now very grown up like Roxie! We are next out competing on the 30th December at a dressage competition and have our first jumping lesson booked for the 28th December which no doubt they will find incredibly exciting as they have only been jumped a few times at home since coming back into work after their holidays!
There are further pictures on Roxie's Training page in Gallery. Below please find a video from the session with Leanne and I have left the sound in the video so you can all pick up little things which may help you and your horses.
I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year :)
Keep Calm & Canter On
