I find Cash so much more forward out hacking than in the school and so removed the pressure of going in the school more than twice a week.
Last week we managed to hack a handful of times with 1 session in the school. Each hack going a different route with varying amount of walking and trotting. Cash also had the farrier and a couple of sessions on the walker.
The one day we did go in the school we had a good session. Half an hour of walk, trot and canter. Finishing off with some Leg Yield, rein back and turn on the forehand.
This week i haven’t managed to ride yet 🙁 I worked last Saturday and went to Chatsworth for the Horse trials and Event Rider Masters first leg, which was amazing. Fabulous to see Gemma Tattersall and Quicklook take the first leg in fine style.
This week the rain came, day after day! Cash had a follow up ET session on Tuesday which was good, nothing untoward to report. Next session will be late June.
I’ve spent 2 days this week in London and it’s really impacted on riding time. I’m super conscious that we are out next Friday competing and have hardly done any riding over the past month!
Fingers crossed the sun returns and we can can get back on track this weekend and through next week!
