Heading Home

Not a particularly note worthy drive other than being very sad to leave the dressage diva lifestyle.

Came home to serious wetness….stables were rather damp, paddock chest high grass yet rather wet underfoot. Boys got all rugs off and put in the back paddock together to hoon…and hoon they did!

Unpacked the float, unplaitedΒ the ponies and although happy to be home (no sweeping??) BoneoΒ Park soon felt like a world away. The week’s experience will certainly not be forgottenΒ though, a big thankyou to the BoneoΒ Park staff for making us feel so welcome and the agistees for putting up with us.

All States Showdown

Park Hack class – E worked superbly. Perhaps the best ride I have had on him to date, the epitome of a true ladies Galloway he was an absolute joy to show.

 

Good pony πŸ™‚

Β I let him out for a rider class, at very short notice – the lovely girl riding him didn’t have time to practice a sitting extended trot but I promised her if she sat and asked him he would do it for her, in the workout it was up the centre line…He rocked it πŸ™‚

E’s open I think was the most strongest class of the show, 7 horses including some seriously decorated National and Royal Champions. E was a commendable 6th, the fat kid amongst the lightweight types I was very happy with him.

J got worked and plaited in the afternoon.
