Flicka’s first jumping outing!

Today we took 4yo homebred Flicka (by Parsons Rasputin) to her first ever jumping outing ~ we have taken it steady with her so far, partly due to time and partly because she has had a mild version of Ali’s darned cough as well so we wanted to make sure she was over that!  Anyhow… she was a star!!  She really seems to enjoy her jumping and took all the fillers (including a water tray in the 2’6”!), big arena with viewing area and people watching etc. totally in her stride.  She is just so chilled in between as well and loves meeting new humans!!

See a video of her round the 2’6”  here.  Some photos below ~ not great quality as stills of video but you get the idea!

In other news….

Ali  is on the mend (fingers crossed) ~ after continuing another set of antibiotics we haven’t heard her cough for a few days and I have started short hacks on her… we will very slowly build up work again and she will hopefully get to some events towards the end of the season.

Unfortunately I took the difficult decision (once again) to withdraw Donovan from Aston Le Walls (meant to be today) as he felt slightly under the weather.  I have given him a week of hacking and judging by the spooking and bucks when I schooled him today he is feeling VERY well again!!  So hopefully we will make it to the Intermediate at Cholmondeley next week ~ never been before but looks like a lovely venue!
