    Default Me and Domino went XC schooling today (photos)!

    Well i hacked down to a local XC course today, never been there but it's actually a nice place.

    Had a bit of a moment when we first got there when he had an almighty bucking session and for a moment i thought i might be hitting the deck before we'd been near a fence! He's very funny as he has a good squeal when he does it - it's just so exciting!

    Jumped everything i asked of him, i did keep it simple as he hasn't been XC in a long time , is pretty green and just wanted to build his confidence up.

    His owners had told me that last time he went XC schooling it too 2 hours to get him in the water, so i've been making sure i ride through every puddle we see and it seemed to pay off as he went in with a little persuasion! A ditch on the other hand.... oh boy. In the end i got off then proceeded to spend 40 minutes trying to drag him over. When he finally went i thought that would be it, but no i repeated the same process another 2 times then still couldn't get him over once i was back on board! So we have serious work to do with ditches!

    Looking forward to the Cottesmore hunt clinic next w/e for Your Horse, and have a few things pencilled in after that - he's a fun boy though, if a bit frustrating and stubbon!

















    And my two favourites..
