I currently have one in for Schooling, I ride and compete him anyway but he has come for a bit of an intensive few days.
I have spoken to his owner everyday. Nothing massive but just an update on how he's worked.
If he was with me for longer I wouldn't message everyday but he's precious to her...
WHoaa far too much information, take it back abit. Is this canter circle okay? Does it just go a bit awry when you ask for the medium? In which case can you medium canter on a straight line? 3/4 line? Close your eyes for a few strides if you need to, (and its safe to) does she go off line when...
May it be that the game had ended yet the show class hadn't? A kid fell off In the sj but had gone through the finish so was allowed to come back for the jump off but she too would have been eliminated if it had been during the round.
Did you really?? Omg they made us wait until 1 o'clock to tell us. Did you know in the arena or once you got back to the Lorry. Thank you so much you were both amazing to teach. Definitely made it easier! (Unless any of the assessors are reading this lol ) This is my fb profile...

We had a tree on the last yard I worked on. It was 20m to the inside of the tree so was great for test riding and the added space the other side was great.
That tree saved us a few times, nothing like heading towards it on a bucking youngster to make them think and stop 😄
It was suggested that I apply directly for the stage 3 but due to the time scale of them meeting to decide etc I decided I may as well just go down the normal route. Boy am i glad I did. The exam environment for them is nothing like I've ever experienced and to have gone straight to stage 3...
Posting on behalf of a friend who is having to consider these options.
Does anyone have any experience of riding after either of these two procedures?
Any info good or bad will be much appreciated.
Not true! Under BD rules you can now go all the way to GP in a snaffle. It is only if you go and compete under FEI rules do you have to wear a double.
There are plenty of bitting options with the Weymouth and Bradoon so it should be possible to find a combination that the horse accepts and likes.
