Who else is fed up with this weather? Most of you that live and work outside I guess!! I know they said we needed the rain and hose pipe bans were introduced but the 'Weather Gods' have taken it a bit too far now......eerywhere is water logged!
Due to the excess rain many events have been cancelled and Berkshire College joined that list on Thursday, which is our 3rd event so far this year to be cancelled due to the weather! This was going to be my last run with Roxie before Barbury International and eveyone I have spoken to about Barbury have said that the XC course is BIG!! I desperately wanted to get another run in as she has only had one run in the 'magic' bit!! As soon as I heard about BCA being cancelled I ran inside and managed to get a late entry into Stratford Hills Horse Trials, so we are now off to Essex on Sunday instead! I just hope this one doesn't get cancelled too....
Just to give you all a quick update with how the other horses are going:
Milli is working very well at the moment and we are preparing her for the BYEH at Barbury IIternational in a few weeks.
Tiffany is continuing to improve both on the flat and over jumps. We have been doing quite a bit of grid work with her and Milli which is really helping them. Hopefully we will get Tiff out to competitions soon!
Dizzy is being a little sweetheart! She was quite 'wild' when she came and didn't like her back feet / legs being touched! After just a few days she was letting us brush her legs and pick out her feet brilliantly. She has now started the 'backing' process and is already lunging and long-reining with a roller on!
SGEventing is now completely up and running and I am being kept incredibly busy teaching, many new Clients as well as riding horses for them :)
Check back early next week for an update on how Roxie goes at Stratford Hills, with pictures and videos, well providing the event doesn't get cancelled because of the damn weather..............
So, until next time,
Keep Calm & Canter On
