Time to get going!
Affinity Bay is back in the office work wise- We had our first Judy Harvey lesson of the year and it went really well.
We were working on the relaxatuon in the canter and the flying changes. It's not so much about the changes themselves with Finn but more about keeping him chilled before and after.
We did some pirouette work and Judy had to remind me to use my inside leg in the pirouette's rather than over using my outside leg which causes us to get a bit stuck!
We are now looking forward to our next training session and a few competitions in March and early April.
Recently we have been out competing at Quainton stud. Galanci RS (Tilly- Owned by Judy FW) and a new ride Eros (owned by Jonathan Chapman and Ian Woodhead) contested both Novice 23 and 39.
Tilly was a star and won both tests on 72% receiving plenty of 8's and some lovely comments from the judges.
Eros was brilliant to travel and was well behaved the whole day. The tests had some green moments and overall the judges really liked him. He was competing H/C but would have come second to Tilly on 70%! Plenty more to come from this horse in the future!
Merri has been in super model mode testing Equilibrium products new Tri-Zone brushing boots. The boots are really soft whilst being protective- The ultimate combination for a good boot.
Merri approved of the boots and we look forward to continue using them.
