5, 4, 3, 2, 1… and We’re Off!!

Actually somehow we are already a month in to the event season, how did that happen?! Get ready for a photo overload…

Dan kicked off the first couple of events in pleasing style. Twesledown Novice had a couple of rusty moments in the dressage and show jumping but they seemed to iron out a bit in our second run at Lincoln.

Both events he was flying cross country and has been feeling like he is thrilled to be back out eventing. The best feeling at the beginning of the season!!

Then followed the first run out for a couple of the babies at Goring Horse Trials. I love taking them out the first time and finding out what they’re really made of!

Fabuleux (aka Fable) is a super little mare I have the pleasure of riding and eventing for her owner to give her a helping hand. Fable is really rather talented but is well aware of that so can be a little full of herself at times! She excelled herself in her first run of the season in the BE100 at Goring this season though and was feeling much stronger than the end of last year and managed to come home with a 5th and a VERY large bag of carrots!

The new Irish boy, Global High Society (aka Bart) was a little gem in his first event. A sweet dressage followed by a baby pole in the SJ and a storming clear xc left him with his first rosette (and many more carrots!) in 6th.

Last weekend was another Novice run for Big Dan at South of England. The dressage arena being on a bit of a slope didn’t play in his favour being a bit gangly still but he followed a 34 dressage with one down SJ and a speedy clear cross country.

Dan is making the cross country feel easier and easier with every run so up grading to intermediate is starting to feel like more of a reality with every event. I’m having to try to stop myself from getting VERY excited!!

That is all our early eventing antics up to date for now. Tomorrow is another run for the babies at Ascott Under Wychwood so I’d better get cracking.

I hope you are all having a wonderful and chocolate filled Easter Weekend.
