    Weekend plans

    I'm going to dressage at Vale View. Last time we went there we did the test in the right hand 15m of the arena as one side was too terrifying. Aim this time is to use 18m of the arena πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ He's going so well at home and so relaxed, we are just going out loads to experiance other things and try...

    Dumb question alert - jumping with two reins

    I hunt with two reins and like milliepops, just grab the lot and sort it as I go. Generally I find if their blood is up, they don't particularly care that I'm knitting πŸ˜‚

    Look who we met today......

    If it helps, my greyhounds are not cat safe, but they are very much small terrier safe. I can leave them with dad's 4kg terrier and they won't move. Mainly because they are utterly terrified of the grumpy little sod.... πŸ™„

    Do you ride in the rain?

    Interesting mix of responses! To be fair to my boy and trainer, it was raining lightly when we started, gradually getting worse!

    Do you ride in the rain?

    Had a lesson last night, and the heavens absolutely opened. My angelic boy just tried his hardest to knuckle down and keep going. A reflection of the fact I try and ride in all weather. Video attached of the borderline biblical downpour

    I have a Fairfax breastplate. I don't use a martingale at all. Never have used one, not sure I own one!

    Just when he's become less terrifying to ride, and I can actually enjoy him.... I'd also got him loads of new goodies for no longer being a hooligan.... He's got a VIP pad and a Fairfax breastplate πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

    Pictures XC schooling

    He's 14.3. They are a size small. My 14h has also worn them but she'd probably be better in an extra small. Fustratingly my leg is absolutely fine on my 14h and my 13.1h which makes me lean towards the saddle....

    Pictures XC schooling

    Had a brilliant day out with my joy xc schooling. Started a little tense, but on a scale of Eddieness, it was relatively mild, chilled once he'd popped a few small fences. Noticed my lower leg is slipping back, not sure if this is me, him or the saddle. It's never done this on any other...
