We have been very busy since our open day. George and Darcy went to Markfield last week, both jumped really well. George jumped a good double clear to win the class meaning he just needs one more double clear to qualify for the second round and Darcy just had one down which was good enough for fourth place.
Lucy and George have been for a jumping lesson at Weston Lawns with Simon Nicholson. George was fab and Simon was really pleased with how well he has come on and Lucy was a little wild to start with but settled and showed lots of promise but we were given lots to work on!!
On Tuesday I took George cross country schooling for the first time this year, he felt great so much more balanced and he was really straight over the narrow and bold over the bigger fences, I can't wait till the end of March for his first event at Offchurch Bury where he is doing the 90cm and then hopefully will aim for the 1m at Aston Le Walls.
Today we have been to Weston Lawns for their arena eventing, George was a good boy in the dressage but a bit of resistance can still sneak in just stopping us getting the higher marks, he jumped really well was just a bit gob smacked jumping out of the arena picking up some penalties but popped him round the loop a second time and he was fab. I took Lucy just for the dressage as the jumping asks a few too many questions of her. I was really pleased with her, she was very wobbly but she tried really hard.
