My young horse Nemo finished his first ever outing on a high note thanks once again to the skill and experience of his rider Leia!
Nemo got placed first and third at the last day of the Te Marua Winter Dressage Series on Sunday. So overall he has achieved two firsts, two seconds and two third placings for the series. Enough to be Reserve Champion of his class, although for some reason RC sashes were not awarded this year??
This was his first ever outing and he has gained in confidence and experience over the three days. Apart from inconsiderate people packing the shed up while he warmed up for his last test (a bit tough on a greenie being last to go and seeing plastic chairs moving through the air) Nemo has handled the whole show experience really well. He was even relaxed enough at the truck to poke his head in the people door - looking for food no doubt! Photos to come tomorrow...
Still waiting on material from the UK for the Fuller Fillies clothing range - a little frustrating but should be here shortly as they have confirmed our paper-work.
Everyone else at the farm is doing well. The warmer weather means the spring growth is starting early (still 2 weeks till Spring) and one pony is on restricted grass already.
Started teaching the foals to back away on commmand when I go into the paddock. Chico is very quick to pick up commands whereas Toffee wants to know if there is any food before he decides to listen
Went to a BBQ last Saturday met lots of lovely people and picked up a new client for the riding school so will have to kick Tiggers "back into work" regime up a notch!
