I had such a brilliant dressage lesson with Lady taught by Leonie Smith. We were working on boosting her medium trots and by the end Leonie seemed very impressed and said there is no reason why she shouldn't be scoring 8's for these now. We also did a lot of work on her canter getting Lady to sit and wait more from behind which also got her to increase her hind leg action, this felt amazing- finally she is starting to build enough strength to keep it up and really work hard.
We head to Brooksby College for Annie's last event of the season on Sunday, scary thought we will be tackling the 5yo courses next year already! This year has gone far too fast!
I think she's got the eventing bug as she's already asked to borrow her again!! It just highlights what a special horse Lady is jumping round like an old schoolmistress at only 6 years old and then will be turning up to the 6yo championships at Osberton to do the CIC*.
So just watch out next season there maybe a new combination on the eventing circuit!
