Horsey day out at Stocklands

Bright blue skies and fluffy clouds were perfect for a day of BD affiliated dressage down the road at Stocklands.  It was my first test on Di’s beautiful Megan, and I did two tests on my own horse Bo Sourire.

Meg was trimmed and shiny for the occasion, and I got on from the lorry ramp. Iona and Lynda were not taking chances that she would move. I took her to the indoor arena for a short warm up.

IMG_2483Meg was up for her Novice test, trotting smartly into a 3-loop serpentine and sustaining her canter through the 20 metre circle and round the edge.

Having put a lot into it, her free walk late in the test was very relaxed and swinging. The fan club of Lisa, Di and Jackie, were there to greet her finale of a salute on the centre line.

IMG_2495Bo needs a longer warm up, and then we did the same Novice test.

That was my riding over, and time for Bo to share some hay with Meg while I got my sandwich.

Iona still had home-bred Rokket to ride in two more difficult Medium tests.  The pair of them was a treat to watch, coming second and first.
