Captain made his dressage debut today at Lincombe Arena. We arrived early to allow him time to settle as this would be his first proper show environment. It was really busy with a large crowd of spectators watching, despite the foggy weather I think everyone had persuaded their Parents, Aunts and Uncles to come along to watch.
He was a really sensible boy and took it all in his stride, the first small pony that cantered near to him resulted in a spooky moment, but he quickly got used to this and soon didn’t bat an eyelid as horses cantered near to him from all directions.
He did two nice tests, for 68% and 72% and was well placed in the final results too. His first and very green prelim 4 test can be seen here.
Next outing will be jumping, much more fun!
