We took George out for his first outing last week, we went to Field Farm at Wymeswold which is great for cross country schooling. Mum took Darcy who loves XC and both of them thoroughly enjoyed them selves, Cherise took George, the aim was just to give him a nice fun time, he was a very good boy and popped everything asked of him.
Yesterday we took Billy and Archie to Vale View for a combined training competition. Both horses were lovely in the dressage and scored impressive marks. Archie is still just a bit unbalanced but very rideable and tries hard and this was my first test on Billy and I was very impressed with his attitude. Going in to the show jumping Billy was just in the lead with 74.58% with Archie close on his heels with 73.96% but Billy had one down jumping which was completely rider error as I got my line wrong on a curving related distance, but at least he only dropped below Archie who jumped a good clear. Then they both jumped lovely clears in the 95cm jumping.
