MDRC Dressage – 3 August 2019 – NASH’s first show

I’ve been riding Nash for about 3 weeks now, so have decided to join Misterton & Distrtict Riding Club to get him out and about a bit. Dressage on Saturday and Show Jumping on Sunday at the club field was this weekend’s plan. Lynsey came to support (and call the tests for me). Bit of...

Show Jumping: Pezinok, Grand Prix, June 2018

    Show Jumping: Pezinok

    Late decision on Wednesday to take Finn Show Jumping today, seeing as the Eventing next weekend has been postponed until September. We entered the 90cm and 100cm classes, and were looking forward to a nice morning of jump practice. Left the yard on time at 07.00, as all competitors needed to be present and available...

      Show jumping – Patrik Eibner (PE riding) @ Ranč Galanta

      I had my lesson booked for 10am but was not feeling well (following several glasses of prosecco, white and a late night dancing in the garden with Chris and Zoë), so Patrik rode Finn today! Just as well: Finn was in a feisty mood, playing up on the way down to the indoor school and...

        Gymnastic jumping session with Patrik Eibner @ Ranč Galanta

        Warm up, as usual, was to think about rhythm, suppleness and submission. Canter felt really good today – very light, with Finn using her back end. We used some ground poles during the warm up to help me to focus on the rhythm, riding 5 strides in a 2 point seat and 5 strides in...

          Pole Work session with Patrik Eibner @ Ranč Galanta

          Focus during warm up was to think about suppleness, submission and rhythm. I should not ride Finn too much in a forward trot, it’s great for in the dressage test, but at home I need to ride more ‘pomaly’, in a slower more deliberate rhythm. Patrik set out ground poles for a walk distance 5...

                The Big Move – Finn joins us in Slovakia

                After all the worry and sleepless nights Finn has finally joined us in Slovakia! Yaaay!

                  CMC Bootcamp: stepping-stone move for Finn

                  09 January – 25 March 2016 Finn moved to Fen End to live with Claire McCormick and the CMC equines team until we moved to Slovakia. During our stay with Claire we received ‘coaching’ rather than formal training, so that we can be more self-sufficient when we get to ‘Russia’.  General themes have been to...
