2* Team Assessment Day and XC Schooling

We had a good day at the 2* training/assessment day on Wednesday on Ali with Richard Waygood and Jonathon Chapman at Boomerang EC.  Richard was very helpful at the end of the dressage session and worked us round for a few minutes as she was rather bright to start with!!

Later we had fun trying out the team test and how this works with 6 horses in a 60x20m arena all at once!

In the afternoon we jumped round a short course and she was jumping really well definitely getting more comfortable in a more forward rhythm (for both of us!), now I just need to sit quieter and keep the rhythm to the fences without doing nothing!!

Donovan came along too and had lots of fun pinging round the XC course!  He jumped everything brilliantly and was great at all the skinnies, which I practiced lots ready for his intermediate.

I’ve been on call this weekend so no pony parties but I have galloped one day and jumped the other on both horses.  Also popped on Flicka (rising 4) this evening, who hadn’t been worked for over a week and was good as gold to get straight on and went very well in work and trot with balance in canter improving, she has lovely paces!
