Appologies for lack of updates but it appears I managed to lock myself out of my own site, luckily it has all been sorted now so hopefully I will be updating regularly from now on.
So here is an update see if you can spot a pattern:
UP: Completing our first One Day Event/ First BE80T. Harley went clear but slow XC and only had one Show jump down
DOWN: Harley decided that all horses were very scary in the Warm Up Areas = Homework!
UP: Winning the opportunity from Horse Magazine to feature in a Master class with Nicola Wilson.
DOWN: Short notice meant that items to show off sponsors/ supporters weren’t available for the photo shoot.
UP: A number of companies kindly replied to a last minute email and Equilibrium kindly kitted us out for the day by sending some amazing boots, a saddle pad and Tshirt.
DOWN: falling off Harley before the master class began (lets just say he’s feeling very well and could happily work in a rodeo!)
UP: The lesson was great and Harley learnt lots
UP: Harley did his 1st BE90 at Skipton
UP: Dressage better and only one down Show jumping (rider error)
DOWN: Dressage Judge – comments didn’t match scores = very unfair judging!
DOWN: Clear XC up to fence 10 (Sand ramp to hedge) when Harley decided sand was too scary to step on so eliminated before we could even present to the jump – lesson learnt never take anything for granted!
UP: The Beastie has been given the go ahead to start work again
DOWN: The second time I rode her she decided walk was far too boring and squishing me would be much more fun!
UP: Wearing a BP
DOWN: Two nasty falls in a week is not great So a run to A&E showed an enlarged spleen and a fractured Rib
UP: After numerous trips to hospital they are happy that my spleen is staying in tact and I had orders of not riding for only 1 week not 3 months!
UP: Entered Harley in for the BE90’s at Hutton and Burgham
DOWN: Waitlisted for Hutton L
UP: New Dressage trainer
DOWN: She’s German and strongly believes in no pain no gain! = one very sore rider
