Rode through my uni dressage test on Jake today, he was a good wee boy but doesn’t quite get that you aren’t allowed to gallop in dressage! He used the change of rein as the speedy bit then slammed the brakes on to trot, after a few times he got it though and was a pro.
Also popped over a couple of little jumps that were up, poor boy got very hot under his big coat and so was super sweaty after we finished. So he got a little bath to get rid of the sweat and I dried him off and put him back out.
I’m seriously considering clipping him next year and getting a heavyweight winter rug for him, as I’m riding more than I usually do in the winter, just at the weekends at the moment, and i get a month off over christmas where i will be riding every weekend and during the week if i’m not working… Any thoughts??
