“We had a great end to 2016 and a fun start to 2017. On the 28th December 2016 we took Dinero and Edd out for BD dressage at Blue Barn. We decided that we would have a go at Elementary with Edd and qualify him for the PetPlan Area Festivals for 2017. We only taught him some of the movements a few days before the dressage, including rein back, and canter walk transitions. Despite this he was really good and won the silver section for both of his tests! Dinero was also very good, he did the two medium tests and won his section in both. We are aiming to qualify him for the BD Summer Medium Regionals.
We started this year with a trip to Merrist Wood with Edd and Crème for the JAS. They both enjoyed it very much, Edd thought that the arena was very scary but did a nice round despite thinking that the arena was going to eat him. Crème was also really good and enjoyed it. No rosettes this time as our style marks weren’t the best with Edd being terrified and Crème thinking it was all very exciting!
Our next outing will be dressage with Edd and Dinero in February as I am focusing on my university exams for the next few weeks. Then after that Dinero is doing his BD winter Elementary and Medium Regionals at Merrist Wood on the 12th and 14th February.
