May 2016 Sponsored Rider Round-Up

“Both horses have now recovered from their respective infected cuts!

Lucas has been back out show jumping at both Riding Club (picking up a DC in the 90cm) and went to his first Cat 2 British Show Jumping at Blue Ridge Equestrian on Sunday where he was DC in the 80, and only took one pole in his first British Novice.

We are back out again this weekend at the Scottish National Equestrian centre to try to pick up our 3th or the required 4 DCs in the 85cm National Amateur Championship.

Corky has been to his first two British Eventing days of the season. His dressage has been a bit inconsistent unfortunately – seems we have cracked it on a surface at British Dressage, but once we are on grass at an event the atmosphere with all of the other hoses and hearing the XC tannoy seems to push him over the edge and make him quite sharp.

His jumping has been great though and he has felt super fit on the XC. The Pro balancer is obviously giving him extra energy – he feels like he could go round again! His next event is Belsay, which is the first weekend in June. Before then we have lots of lessons booked and will get out to some local dressage to try to get things back on track.”

“Keysoe Premier League was a good show for all the horses. Affinity Bay was placed 11th on the second day. The first day his canter was brilliant but trot lacked expression and the second day the trot had more than enough expression but the canter was rather exuberant that led to some costly errors.

Merri had a great test on the second day- she was really with me in all the work, unfortunately we had one misunderstanding in the extended trot but it didn’t effect the rest of the test.

I was thrilled to score 7’s from all of the judges in the canter pirouettes.

Below is a link to the test….

Merri’s PSG- 67% 5th place

 Galanci RS made her debut at the Premier League in the 5yo Young Horse class.

She was incredible and really rose to the occasion.

She finished an incredible 2nd Place and qualified straight through to the semi finals!!

I had the opportunity to go training at Hughes Dressage before the Premier League. We had a great day and learnt lots. Below is a training video….

Training with Gareth Hughes

Todd had his first trip to Windmill Farm at the start of April. He was very well behaved and wasn’t spooky at all. He produced his most relaxed tests to win both Prelims on 67 and 69%.

Dante went to Addington (our second ever show together) and was extremely good. He navigated a busy warm up and spooky arenas like a pro. He score 66.9% with some green blips but over all he is showing so much promise for the future.
