    GOOD LUCK TODAY, looks like good weather for it!
    Yes that is exactly right, at least 3 are used in the 90 course.

    Well, we came third in our Arena


    It was a good day at Fair Oak with Hattie , 36.7 dressage (the arena we had were all marked quite hard), 8 faults show jumping which was a shame (just need to pick feet up more!) and clear XC The arrowheads and blue barrels were no problem, but we did scramble over the picnic table as they blew the whistle, spooked Hattie so we lost impulsion and I had to smack her but lost my stirrup going over

    The dressage score was disappointing but the judge was pretty mean to everyone, Hattie did a nice test but she made comments about tension and requiring more suppleness of back and acceptance of bridle, we got a 5 for our 10m half circle which I though incredibly harsh.

    Anyway, some photos...






    She didn't actually stop at this one, just a moment in time

    Wow well done Hattie (and you of course)! Some of those fences were very up to height.

    Well done!
    She is great! And she jumps just like Lance ... He has a low set neck which enables him to get a good luck before jumping as well. That's why I don't like other people riding him. I worry they might panic and smack him or something when he does actually have things in hand ... or hoof

    Thank you all

    I have bought a few professional photos, two of which are jumping and I'm going to use them as a starting point for me to improve my jumping - I am fairly appalled that I just can't remember to sit up on Hattie and get my lower leg forward and I really want to sort this out...I'm on a mission! I've booked some more jumping lessons as a starting point.
