I have turned Miranda out for a holiday, she’s still quite weak and needs to grow before I do too much more with her. She’s been an absolute pleasure to do, to hack and to school, she’s the sweeetest most gentle mare and is also very bold.
Chief is coming along very nicely, he is almost ready to attempt a dressage test and I have bravely entered one, although I am not sure we will cope with the canter yet. He has been the most perfect horse in every way, It’s hard to believe he is 3, he has the confidence and ease of a horse 10 years older. He loves to hack, loves to come in to do things and is just the most easy kind horse that I could wish for. Emma, pictured below, helped break him in. She hacked Chief out for a few days from here when he first came home.
Photo below is Emma on Chief being welcomed home from a hack by Hugo, and also a photo I took one stunning early morning from Chief out on a hack.
The unbelievable Chief is so laid back that he tolerated a Hugo hug!!
