Feeling really motivated after a great lesson with @slheventing! Rode through our first elementary test and it wasn’t too bad at all - now to crack on and work towards entering one in the coming months!
This lesson was just what I needed to refocus me! So lucky to have such a supportive instructor in @sarahholmes_16 and of course, the best horse in the whole wide world! #dressagediva#britishdressage#colouredhorsesofinstagram#horseofalifetime
Noble 4-In-1 Guardsman Turnout
Noble Outfitters™ Guardsman 4-in-1 Turnout blanket system includes an innovative removable and interchangeable insulation layering system that consists of a1000D ballistic polyester rip-stop cover and two weighted inserts for a total of four blanket weight combinations. Simply unzip the shell and insert up to two weights and adjust the blanket to your needs. The two inserts provided are 150G and 250G.
The 4-in-1 turnout is waterproof and breathable with full taped seams. This unique blanket features two front patent pending 360 quick connect buckles on the front closure buckles that can easily be used even with gloves on. A comfort collar and comfort withers made of memory foam adapts to the contours of the neck for an exact and comfortable fit.
The shell is ideal for cool or rainy weather and when the temperature drops at night, simply add an insert to increase the warmth of the turnout and remove in the morning. Save time, space and money with this blanket that covers all your needs!
There’s a saying that when competing you either win or you learn. Today we learnt that there are roadworks on the way to West Wilts. We also learnt that 10 minutes warm up is not enough to get Cassie properly through and off the leg. Actually I probably already knew that, but we had the proof today. On a positive note, we still managed 65% for our first test, 2nd in our section, 5th overall, but sadly not enough for that elusive last regional qualifying point. It does mean we have a set of AF sheets at Prelim Silver should we not manage or decide not to go to the Winter Regionals, so not all is lost. Things went better in the second test, leaving us 4th in our section with 66.25% and 6th overall, so that’s another Novice AF sheet in the bag for next Summer. 💖🐴💖 #sassycassie#dressage#dressagediva#dressagepony#welshpony#competitionday#weregettingthere#slowlybutsurely#roadworks#lessonlearned
Tilly and I ready to rock n roll for our demos tomorrow. Tilly was an angel today, so hopefully we can just have some fun 😇. The first Para-Equestrian Demo is at 3pm-3:45pm in Espom Pavilion Barastoc Arena and will be on Para Grades, Classification and Compensating Aids. The second demo is the freestyle, where all the riders will do their own choreography to music... this is from 7:00-7:30pm in the main Arena just before the Grand Prix Freestyle, would love to see as many of you there as possible. These demos will also feature other fellow amazing para-equestrians, @zoevorenas_paraequestrian @bmurphy_paraequestrian @letsgetjototokyo 🎊🎉💃🏼🐎🐴
