Headed to Taupo on Sunday for dressage, unfortunately our grounds are closed at the moment so this day was held at the NEC.
It was a lovely day down there, a tad cold but generally is this time of the year.
There were 22 starters in my classes and I placed 7th and 11th. 1.2 - 63.75% & 1.4 - 65.20%.
There were some super little ponies there that cleaned up, actually there was a truck load of them, all show ponies by the looks of things. The young girls were wrapped they had placed and I was happy for them too, encourages the younger riders when they can get a ribbon!
Dev went awesome, a huge improvement on Te Aroha, guess that's what happens when you don't ride like a muppet. He is starting to work in a better outline now, just have to work at keeping him together. We have struggled with the lefthand canter for a while but have been working on it for the last month. Was wrapped to see he got an 8 for his canter on this lead, must be doing something right ;)
Not alot happening again for a while so will keep him ticking over, we went down to the x-country course the other day and I had a wee jump, obviously nothing too big as it must be the first time in years I have jumped out. Enjoyed it immensely and look forward to doing that again!
