A good, established, warmup routine for the warmup?
This is not the one, but we made the best of it!
Valiosa, at her 4th show, Training Level. This time a beautiful foal was born the night before and was in a pasture next to the warmup arena and the showring.
Right outside the rail, the filly, less than 12 hours old, was resting on the ground with her mom.
It was a great lesson to come with a plan, and act on it, regardless of distractions.
We warmed up some more. Each time past D she’d spin and fling her self to see the filly.
Whatever her reason, this newborn treasure made for the greatest distraction ever for her. Better in the few outdoor warmup minutes.
Interrupted by screaming at the baby, in mule pose.
I love my young mare!
She pulled it together and we had two decent tests – pictures next time!
