    Andy Thomas tTest riding clinic

    I did them in the kitchen this morning making a cup of tea... long may it continue. I’m really keen to go back in 3 or 6 months and see what’s changed with us both.

    Andy Thomas tTest riding clinic

    Almost wish I’d never said I’d come back and share my thoughts now. Pancake is my 5yo Connie; fresh in Jan from Ireland and has done a sterling job of building my confidence after a terrible run of riding woes. She’s the sanest baby pony I’ve ever met, but balances it with being a responsive...

    Andy Thomas tTest riding clinic

    I’m going to one today; utterly terrified but quite excited to see what he makes of my weirdness. If nothing else - it’s a bloody expensive trot round a new arena for PancakePony. If anyone’s interested I’ll throw some thoughts together afterwards

    Weekend Plans

    Crispy finally has a saddle that fits and she likes - don’t ask! just in time as we are going to a Samantha Wood dressage clinic up the road for a bit of a new arena and a laugh. I don’t know what she’s like, anyone been taught by her?

    Saddles with same tree shape as Ideal Jessica?

    The Suzannah ‘off the peg’ comes on a deeper panel which made me feel a hundred miles from the pony. The Jessica had a slimmer panel, but didn’t sit as nicely on the pony. I preferred the closeness of the Jessica. We compromised and built a Suzannah on the same panel as the Jessica.

    Jai Johnson

    The guy evidently has some kind of ego/power trip thing going on. There was a video a while ago of him on a young horse, chestnut if I remember rightly - turning itself inside out on a concrete yard whilst he clung on. That’s not normal horse behaviour and needs investigating rather than some...

    Weekend plans :D

    Lesson on Sat; although I’ve done something awful to my back and it’s really sore so may turn into her being ridden for me. No other plans other than washing tail and poo picking the field!

    thank you! I’m always really nervous of sharing my waffle

    CDJ masterclass

    Her whole ethos was very much teach them to be reactive, forward, balanced, supple and straight - then everything thereafter is easy and the tricks are much easier to teach. She was fabulous, I really enjoyed it. oh no :( hope you’re feeling better!

    CDJ masterclass

    so basically, this was her way of getting horses hotter off the leg and rewarding them after doing some collection work for example. If they’re a bit lazy, behind the leg etc - come down the long side and click, give a leg aid to go and really GO down the long side.

    Weekend plans

    Hacked in the sleet before work on Friday - pretty bracing 🤣 CDJ masterclass yesterday so a day off. Going down to Stoneleigh this morning - no ponies though; we are going to a fishing show as part of the OH birthday present (joy!) if I’m back in time to squeeze in some schooling - I will have...

    Opinions on changing working pupil positions??

    I think yes; and any decent yard will understand you need to go where you’ll get the training you need to do what you want to do - as well as the pay

    CDJ masterclass

    Literally just a copy and paste of the notes I made at the CDJ masterclass yesterday - it was fantastic. Really enjoyed seeing training and work in progress rather than the show ready polished end result. Adored the ‘very ordinary’ in Charlotte’s own words mare that they brought out - she was a...

    Pole exercises to develop the canter

    anyone else jinxed with horses :(

    Yes, I absolutely get it. I bought a smart little hack type 4yo to dressage, she ended up doing all sorts of things to herself - DDFT in front, which turned out to secondary to the later diagnosed PSD in both hinds. We rehabbed the front, then 12 months later did the PSD op, rehabbed her and...

    Pole exercises to develop the canter

    Anyone got any lovely exercises up their sleeve they’d share with me? My little Connie arrived from Ireland in Jan, and is coming on leaps and bounds - she’s super trainable, mega chilled about life and just an all round good egg. I’m thrilled with her. Walk and trot are really coming along...
