We had a lovely day at Offchurch Bury event today in the sunshine, it was a brilliantly run event by Lands Eventing( check out their website for their next event in July http://www.landseventing.co.uk). Archie was very chilled about the whole thing, he went a little green in the arena and made a few baby mistakes but still got a good mark of 33 which I was really pleased with as we got several 8's for his trot work. He was nearly very good in the show jumping, it was quite sticky and he jumped brilliantly right till second last fence which he just tensed and hollowed on the approach and had it down which was a real shame as the rest of round was so good. I was thrilled with him cross country we just went very slowly as I really want to train him to go in a good rhythm and listen to me as he is so big and powerful that if let him go to fast and he gets unbalanced he wiki learn to get strong and I won't be able to contain the power. So we had a lovely canter and was really good at the questions and really enjoyed himself. I can't wait for next time!
We had a great time at Somerford Park on Thursday, Jo Payne very kindly gave Flo and I a lift so Mum and Cherise could come to. Somerford has an amazing 7 mile farm ride which is all weather and has lots of fences including waters, steps and ditches so Mum took Darcy and Cherise on Archie round that and had a fab time, Jo and I took Tiff and Flo on the cross country which has everything you could possibly want which is great as I wanted to check Flo was back on top form before our intermediate next week, I am pleased to say she was, she felt great really locking on to all the narrows and we both loved every minute. Jo and Tiff looked really good making everything they did look effortless.
We have been really busy at home with the two new young horses that have arrived, Harvey has been a good boy and progressed well and is trotting round on the lunge and all being well I will go off on my own tomorrow. Tonka who we broke as a three year old last year has really filled out since last year and is looking good and has been lunged with his tack on the last coupl
