PICS OF SANDY quite nice photos i thought. She definately prefers jumping over straight dressage, thats for sure. And she is the sort of horse that needs alot of regular work. Far more than i can give her at the moment. Hence have sold her on to an eventor. A lovely lady that saw her advertised when i bought her. She will have a great time hooning around a x-country course, i;m sure. A real shame, because type wise, she was the kind of horse i really like. But as they say, horses for courses.

Day 2 at home in the arena. Photos aren't the best cause my mum doesn't know how to use the zoom. lol. Anyway, back to Sandy. She starts off a bit behind the leg, but once she lowers her head, and stretches over her back, it feels really good. We now have some bend to right, alot better than yesterday, and today we cantered!! exciting stuff. She was very good, picked up the right lead, but quite speedy (obviously a balance issue) Have the farrier coming to shoe her, as she still has racing plates on, and her feet are quite long. So far, all good.
