With seven horses in full work we have all been keeping busy! Barney has settled well and has been ridden the last few days and has been being a good boy, he will now do a couple of weeks basic fittening work before going off to his trainer. Ringo has been going well, I had a really good lesson on him with Kim Sleath today working on more connection, I really enjoyed it and felt we have gelled well over the last couple weeks and now got lots of homework before next lesson. Rogey is going really well, she is such a lovely horse. We have taken her for a practice show jumping, she hasn't been in the ring for about a year but she just took it all in her stride and jumped two super rounds. We are taking her and Lucy to hire an arena tomorrow with lots of Xc fences.
Cherise and I have a really good couple of days out hunting with the Quorn Hunt with Darcy & Flo both horses have gone brilliantly flying everything that we have asked them to do. Below is a photo of Cherise and Darcy flying a hedge, photo by kind permission of Penny Fillingham Photography.
I went show jumping on Saturday to Vale View to do the Scope Qualifiers, unfortunately we had a bad case of four faultitis. Lulu jumped two really good rounds but had annoying fence down in both rounds. Lucy was a rather excited to be out after her break, below is the video of her 1.05m round.
