– You don’t get to wear a neck-diaper in your sport…
Yeah. So there.
Got an even bigger, diaper, to don next time.. With bling on it. It’ll come out in the next rated show. Just in case this isn’t poufy enough.
Yesterday’s show at Camelot was the most stress free and enjoyable event with Valiosa to date. We took three horses and everyone did great!
Valiosa got 67.5 at Training Level Test 2. Would have been 69 and change but breaking to canter at the end of a trot diagonal got the original 7.5 marked out and brought down to a 4. So you know, don’t ride like that 🙂
At Training Level Test 3 she pulled off a 65.5, even with a naughty disobedience at the first canter with a buck and a wrong lead. Payback for a completely unsophisticated canter aid (she felt done-for-the day to me, thought she’d offer a late transition.). So, trust your mare and don’t monkey around.
Very happy with Miss Grey Mare. The halts on centerline are really coming along, got an 8 on two of them – again, it’s the canter work that needs…. work.
Further Remarks from the judge at the last test: Very nice pair! Great potential for moving up soon!
Glad she has faith in us and proud of getting this young horse here. I know better though. To play at first level, riders have to add a few more tokens.
