We picked up a 5th for our prelim test at the Wednesday night Scottish Dressage Group comp, a 2nd in the 95cm SJ at SNEC and a 2nd in our prelim yesterday at SNEC – also our first time in the 60x20 arena!
This does all sound very good but to be honest, we still have the same contact issues in the dressage and went onto knock 3 poles in the next SJ class we did! Things are improving in some areas - more accurate and obedient in the dressage and an improvement in our SJ canter but lots still to work on!
We have back to back eventing weekends coming up at Eglinton and then Dalkieth to look forward too. The one weekend off and then Hendersyde which might end up being our last event of the season due to Weddings, holidays and a SJing trip up to Blair.
In other exciting news my lovely new lorry Bluebell will be arriving in 2 weeks so our blog will be spiced up with some storied of competing 2 horses as we’ll have room to bring Lucas to the parties now! After a year off from riding and another year off from competing after his injury, it could prove for some interesting trips!
