Well after a few days of sort of nice weather the rain is back and back with a vengeance!! Things have been a little quieter of the past week or so on the competition front but that doesn’t mean we’ve not been training lots at home, as the start of the event season is now only around the corner and the excitement has started to build now! I think I'm worse than a kid at Christmas as March approaches!
Milli has had to have a short break after picking a fight with the biggest horse on the yard two weeks ago but after a check-up trip to Bell Equine yesterday she is now allowed to come back into work and there is no serious damage. It’s not something that is very pleasant to talk about but part of her ‘lady parts’ got slit from one of the kicks from the other horse! Makes me cross my legs just thinking about it, bless her. That must have hurt! Thankfully, although it still has to be monitored, she is going to be back to normal in no time. A little frustrating though as it does mean she can’t do the JAS next weekend at Merrist Wood after having so anti-biotics etc and also I think her first event will now be towards the end of March just so I can fully prepare her, as she is still only young so there’s no rush 😊.
Outings wise we are next out at Saddlesdane Equestrian Centre on Tuesday for some SJ practice as they have course hire slots and then the Thursday after that (next week) we are off to Felbridge for the Combined Training. These are super competitions as they run with the BE tests so gives a great chance to practice tests before the start of the season.
I will let you know how are outings go next week when we get back 😊
