I seem to be updating Facebook instead of my blog lately, sorry about that if you don’t do Facebook!
Horses are going well, Captain won his first attempt at BD dressage, not sure if that was becoause the standard wasn’t that high or if he really did pull off a smart test! I felt there was lots of room for improvement so I was surprised that he won.
So I have kidded myself that I we have that phase nailed and have been out jumping the last few weeks, he’s won some BS £ and has qualified for second rounds at British Novice. I would rather be Eventing though and already the first March events are taking entries and we are in!! Went to do Jumping and Style at Hartpury yesterday his round is here,he was the youngsest horse in the class. He’s such a star.
The lovely Chief is still being lovely, not sure he will be a world beater but he’s brave and a trier and I can’t help but love a trier! Video of his latest jumping competition, which was his first bs show, is here.
We have bought another Renkum 2 year old, Renkum Jitterbug, bay gelding and a real event type with a lovely temperament.
We have sent Buddy to Louise Harwood to SJ and event for us, at 15.2 he was just too small for me and Louise is getting a really fab tune from him, over 70% in his last few dressage tests and he’s jumping well BS. He will be for sale if anyone is looking for a good correct 5 year old. Although if he continues to grow, I might have him back.
