After over a month off jumping after her last event Milli was very excited to jump at home last week and she jumped so well i decided to pop over to Saddlesdane last sunday (27-10-13) for their first BS show of the winter season. Seeing as she hadn't jumped out for a while I thought i'd do the 95cm as a bit of a warm up and then the discovery. She jumped really well in both classes finishing in 2nd place in both, which resulted in her winning back the exact amount it cost me to enter the two classes which was a good result :)
We have had our WOW dressage saddle for 3 weeks now and the difference in Milli has been amazing! She has been working so well I thought , although she is still only 5, it was time to have a go at our first British Dressage Novice test. We have been working on our medium trot recently and some more advanced movements which she has thoroughly enjoyed! Well, it's safe to say the WOW saddle has transformed her as she won the Novice 28 with a super score of 72.08%!!! WOW, literally! She then went on to come second in Novice 39 with 66.89%!
Then it was time for Roxie's turn and to say she was a bit excited to be out was a bit of an understatement!!! She hasn't been out to a competition since Eridge Horse Trials in July after her being a prat in the field! She just about managed to maintain her excitement to score 65.51% in Elementary 43. She added in a few extra movements herself so we could have easily broken the 70% barrier. WOW were at Blue Barn with us for the day so I got to ride Roxie in one too and there was huge improvements in her way of going too! With both the horses improving so much with just a change of saddle, after a winter of dressage and SJ i can't wait for the start of the 2014 season :)
Another Blog to come soon after we had a very busy day on Thursday with both WOW and Global Herbs visiting the yard for the day.......
