Bills and I had our first lesson in quite sometime... Was much needed for the pair of us I think!
We did lots of working on being straight, which we did get better at! and that was followed by some lateral work, and whe very very start of learning passage. We both had fun, however I had very sore abb muscles the next day, but that proves I was starting to use them I guess!

Abbie had some float lessons, and now self loads, very proud of the wee ginge.... will be interesting to see what she makes of the work she will be getting soon, as the breaking in will start! YAY!!!!!

Twlight 4 the final one

The evening was lovely, no rain or sand blasting winds, but nice and warm.
Bills and Kerry took one rail sj, and clear xc, all training jumps bar one... they came in 4th, so a very good effort all round.
I have Tommy out tomorrow to look at Billy and Abbie, and hopefully plat, if Bills is looking ok to jump on Sunday.

Have also sorted the dentist for Abbie, so she will be all sorted before getting broken in.....

Round the ring pony

So I took Bills jumping at the weekend, just 65cms... but we did it!
we did fairly well as well, 3rd in novice, 2nd in Open (and was very close for 1st by the sounds of things) and we won both mannered and rider! Don't think Ive won a rider class in my life, let alone a jumping one...
Sadly the twit wouldn't stand still in the champ judging.... but that ok, we had a great day.

Number 3

Well we had rain tonight! and it was chilly.
SJ was much better and no time faults and one rail... Xc was a mixed bag as the wee pooh managed to buck poor Kerry off, however she got back on and managed to do the course clear with minimal time faults! fantastic... she even did training jumps... So the pair of them finished 5th, and are sitting 11 on the accumulator series...

The day before Bills and I had a wee jump (65cms) in preparation for jumping at Bangor this weekend... fingers crossed he doesn't try to eject me as well!
