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 wine 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...

      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...

              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...

                XC Schooling @ Aston-le-Walls

                Using one of the Schooling vouchers I either won at Aston-le-Walls, or was given as a thank you for Fence Judging, before Finn moves to Claire’s and the travelling makes it difficult. A beautiful bright sunny day – perfect for a play on the all weather surface at Aston. Finn was a dream today and...
