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).
