Ponys first stressage (:

Took both the girls to combined training today to do Intro A :D this is pips first time doing dressage and her first time out since disastrous january!!

 

she was absolutly super! so well behaved - had a massive spook in the test and i didnt ride her as accuratly to the markers as i should/could have done due to her green ness and because there was a very scary orange advertisment directly unger the judges hut which made for an interesting trot down the centre line - but despite this we still scored a very respectable 61.75% to lie in second we then had to do a small course of about 2ft3 which she jumped clear but with no real marks for style we were just going for 'get over it' so overall we came second! such a good horse! the dressage was video'd but i cannot get it of the camera but will upload it when i can - so heres just a couple of photos from the warm up :)

 She has filled out and grown up beautifully, honestly. She's a credit to you leanne!

It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.

Congrats!! I'm hoping Duffy and I have our first outing next month oooh!

Can I ask... are you allowed to have bandages/boots on over there? We have to have our horses legs naked as the day they were born!

thank you i am so chuffed with her she managed to keep all four feet firmly on the ground with out having a hissy fit at anything and was so relaxed in her test apart from a big spook as we came round the corner and she spotted the k marker :L  DuffyDuck - no we have to take them off before we go into the arena - these photos were taken in the warm up which was handily in the 20x60 boarded area so pony got to see boards for the first time!!
