Gatsby was good tonight doing some pole work 💃 Starting to feel more supple and responding to my legs individually better just had one pathetic little moment when he wanted to be sassy but he’s also really lazy (swipe) when he decided the top of the school was scary but was much less spooky and concentrated well! Opal is plastered in mud, he’s very pleased with himself 😏
We hid from the rain today and went indoor jumping! Pig was a superstar as always ❤️ We’re booked to go xcountry at Somerford on Wednesday.... not sure if the weather will allow that!! Also not holding out any hope for Norton Novice this Sunday if the rain persists 😔 You watch out first Novice this year will be Belton!!! 🙈 #horsesofinstagram#eventersofinstagram#eventing#eventhorse#showjumping
Little raw of Gatters schooling yesterday! He worked nicely and was much more relaxed ❤️ Ignore me I’m still getting used to him. He’s having a well deserved day off today after a busy few days! Also the saddler was back out yesterday as we’re having a few problems with the saddler still not sure about it but fingers crossed it’ll be fitting better!
Epic hustle from @jashiach @sophiebailey_xx @nikkitalimb @indianichols today-we managed to get *every* horse on the yard worked at the fabulous @field_farm_cross_country! Thank you so much for your help girls... couldn't do it without you all. These ponies WILL get to their first BE event next weekend 👏 ❤💪🦄
Gatsby was a star doing some polework tonight! He’s settled in really well but understandably a bit spooky to ride so having something to concentrate on helped so much to distract him from spooking at everything in the school and think about what he was doing, obviously I’m still getting used to him so we were very far from perfect but considering he only arrived on Saturday I couldn’t of asked more from him and have some really good exercised to help us! Even just tonight I could see an improvement from yesterday in both of us and when I get him working properly from behind he moves so nicely and feels really powerful and was doing a lovely more elevated trot!❤️ • Opal is loving field rest! He only has a week left so next Monday I’m going to ring the vet and decide wether once again to try an bring him back into work or maybe just leave him for a few months but whatever we decide he’s very happy atm and that’s all that matters ❤️
