Flash has barely put one of his big hooves wrong since our last update, in fact he has been pretty phenomenal and definitely completely back to the Flashy boy I know! We have mainly been out on the Showjumping circuit proving that cobs really can - it may be getting a little addictive although we are still busy trying to channel our inner dressage diva at home!
So Flash and I are definitely back on track since the last blog I wrote…..finally! We have been out and about and managed a lovely double clear at Hopetoun Horse Trials and Forgandenny, dressage still needing some work but both of us feeling back to our normal and positive selves which has been much more enjoyable.
So we have been quite busy since my last blog! We have managed to get out and about to a few shows where ID has been jumping consistent double clears around British Novices and has just been a big dude!
I’m not sure writing a blog for social media is really my thing (I’d much rather be writing a referral report) but I’m going to give it a go!
Hey it’s Stacey and Marlo and our latest blog is about our second ever Royal Highland Show experience.
So I’m starting to wonder if anybody has fallen off as much as me between the months of March and June?!
My day usually starts with an early dog walk with my faithful VetDog “Inky”. She has been with me since I qualified – and is responsible for map reading and music choice!
So I’d like to start by saying that I feel like I could officially be back out of showjumping retirement....or maybe I shouldn’t say that...I’ll just touch wood that this is me definitely back into the swing of things?!
Why is it that when your own animal isn’t quite right your brain seems to fall out and you loose all rational thinking? Or maybe it’s just me!
This weekend was all systems go. I had deliberated a lot about entering Floors as it was the same weekend as my friends wedding, it is my favourite event to ride at and I just couldn't miss it! I entered the BE100 and was blessed with a 2.30pm dressage time!
