Tales of Taco the Wonder Horse and his ammy rider on their way to a Training Three Day

Aiken: Friday Videos

Tomorrow is our first event of 2010: Full Gallop Farm Horse Trials!  My goal is to have a positive first outing.  I want to improve my lengthenings in dressage while preserving suppleness and forwardness.  In the jumping phases, I want to continue to improve my role in creating energy, line, and balance to the jumps.

We did a short jump school today to review and fine-tune.  I was having some ridiculous problems changing leads, but other than that it was a great session.



Then Taco had a lovely roll in the paddock.  Back by popular demand, here is Taco in the sand-- this time showing off his athleticism.

 

The dogs had a great day.  Crescent found a new toy: a pine cone.



And finally, Amy jumped her homebred mare very successfully.  She goes Beginner Novice this weekend.  She's a six year old Percheron/ Thoroughbred, sired by Karsh (CAN; JC name Secret Secretary).
