I got my new girl 2 months ago. She is a 5yr old ID and after finally getting a saddle sorted (looooonnnng story!) for the past few weeks we've buckled down with her training.
Keen to get her out and about I booked an Intro A dressage test at Merscough. She warmed up beautifully - cool as a cucumber in the new surroundings - and although she was a bit spooky in the smaller arena where the test was held, she was a good girl and produced some nice movements. Unfortunately her mum was a dope and forgot one of the movements, but despite this, we had lovely comments from the judge and i left feeling quite happy with myself and the neddie.
I was therefore thrilled when I had a call from a friend, who was riding a later test, to tell me we ha come 2nd!!! Woohooo!!! What a good girl!
I hope eventually to do a bit of everything with Dulcie - even some BE if I get brave enough as she LOVES jumping! sorry for the shameless bragging - but I am a very proud mum right now
