MOST RECENT

From our show a couple of weeks ago 😍 he is really starting to feel more together in the saddle and is finally starting to take the contact instead of just pulling into it and ignoring my aids. Baby is going places! .

Who would have ever thought that once we spent 20 mins trying to get over this one jump and had to end up walking away from it because he was just getting increasingly worked up. Now I have a hell of a job trying to hold him coming into it! He knows the water is after this jumps so locks on and flies over it like he's on a mission πŸ˜‚

Keen for a weekend off from horse events next weekend, it's been a big and exhausting (but good) weekend, so it will be nice to just chill this weekend and do some stuff at home ☺️

Ridden classes went so much better than led classes this morning! Ended up coming home with Reserve Champion Newcomer! Proud mum of the baby in a new place today for pulling his shit together at the end of the day! We also had a nice hack home (local show) which is a big deal for Wren when he is by himself. Hacking by himself normally sends his anxiety into overdrive but he literally walked home on the buckle of the reins! πŸ’ͺ😬

Before and after show prep πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³ I never realise how dirty he is until I give him a wash! He was extra dirty today though from our xc lesson this morning. He's a little wet in the top photos over his back because I started to hose him before I remembered to take a photo! .

So proud of wren today! We had a xc lesson and our first lesson since his rearing day and being back on the ulcershield. He jumped the best he ever has, popped over some scary colourful jumps that he hadn't seen before that were pretty big for him without any hesitation, I was in total shock! He was a little keen over some jumps but that's such an amazing thing to say from the usual 'he refused every single jump'. Was such a good feeling to just cruise around for a change. He is really starting to get a bit of confidence in himself finally. We even popped over some of the bigger steps with a little encouragement which is a huge deal for him as he really puts on the nerves and the brakes with them so I literally couldn't be happier with his efforts today! .

I entered wren in a local show for next weekend ☺️ it will be his fourth show ever and his third ridden show. He has never been ridden at these grounds before so I'm not expecting a lot from him in a new place but we will see how we go! .

Somebody was an absolute angel for our ride today! After only two doses (tonight being his third) on ulcershield he is a completely different horse! Flawless flat session - even in the canter he wasn't a steam train which is a big deal on the best of days! And we even popped a few small jumps at the end of the ride and for the first time in months he was actually happy to slow right before them and trot over the ones that were small enough for him to and then no galloping off on the other side! I'm a happy camper today that's for sure 😍

Took the little ghost horse for his first ride in about 4 months today! He was a lot better than I expected, only one little buck going into canter. He was pretty spooky going along the road to get to the river trail but he always is when riding out by himself. Random fact about Ghost - for those of you who don't know Ghost came to me off a meat truck straight from the rodeo where he had been a failed bronc. For this reason he is a very nervous horse, mounting and dismounting needs to be quick or he panics, he doesn't like stalls or small confined spaces (I suppose because it reminds him of the Shute at the rodeo), and any form of leg aids are a massive no no. A simple click from your tongue is all you need for any form of forward movement, pressure from your legs generally sends him into a blind run (again from the rodeo). He is a very special boy and will live out his retirement with me, has come such a long way in his confidence in people since he came to me and he is certainly a special boy ☺️

Day two back on ulcershield and we had a really nice ride tonight! He was super soft the whole ride - no pulling or steam training or carrying on, it was so nice! We just kept it to trot work today though because we were working so well together that I didn't want to rev him up and we did a big canter session yesterday. So today was trot work, leg yielding and shoulder fore and he was a good little monkey! Also, the joys of having a horse whose mane is too thick to lay on one side of his neck πŸ™„ I have never seen a thoroughbred with so much fro! Time for a trim! βœ‚οΈ
