I’ve genuinely never been as obsessed with a pony as I am with Max. We popped a few jumps today in preparation for tomorrow. I set up a double, a skinny and a spread (my absolute fear) and he flew all of them without getting strong. The hard work is starting to be worth it! #welshsecd#welshsectiond#poniesofinstagram
Look after yourself and know that you’re not alone. . . . . I’m always here for anybody who needs to talk about anything, even if you want a good natter about ponies and dogs to take your mind off things. #mentalhealthawareness
I am so proud of Max and myself today. Our first attempt at arena eventing, our first course since our jumping ‘training’ and our first attempt at some pretty technical fences. He got quite strong, hence me trotting most of the course! Plus he can jump so big from trot so there was no point cantering him around it and losing control! But still just so proud of this! #welshsecd#poniesofinstagram#welshsectiond#arenaeventing
I’m focusing on mine and Max’s jumping this month. We are aiming to enter our first summer show on 20th, so it’s all systems go to get us to a place where we are safe to actually jump a course (which I think is very plausible). I’m excited to just get him out and start jumping more and higher!
Took Max to Field Farm for some indoor schooling and he was perfect. Kept it calm and steady after last week but can’t wait to go next time and do even better. Also, look at the scope! . . . . #welshsectiond#welshsecd#poniesofinstagram
completely over the moon with Max today. We managed to jump a 75cm straight with absolutely no issues. Anyone who knows Max and our ‘journey’ will know that we have come so far. We have gone from not being able to canter over a pole without Max tanking to now popping a 75cm straight fence in canter with absolutely no tanking at all (Max seems to tank more with straights than cross poles). It may seem tiny to some people, but honestly I’m so happy with the progress and it’s just pushing me to do more!!
