My other thread informed you that I have been quite poorly which I will take care of tomorrow booking in with the smo. However I had already booked and paid for a dressage to music clinic and an ode this weekend which I was not going to miss.

The dressage to music was with Rob Waine a DR rider he watches you ride than drawers up a floor plan that best suits your horse. Then you sit with a lady and discuss what music you like.

Ginger was awesome as always and Rob gave us a floor plan that was very challenging but that suited ginger to a tee. I can’t wait for my first draft of music to come through.

Than I put my name down for an ode at my yard. I’m not ashamed to say I only entered the intro as he has not seen a Xc or sj course since I came off last year.

The dressage was lovely he is a dude 73.42% sj a little dodge two poles down and mummy error of course 12 faults.

Sj he was a nappy little monster. The Xc fence judge clearly didn’t know a map from twenty yards was not a refusal and gave me 20 faults. Looking at the video I would say may be four. However we came fourth which. Is amazing and I couldn’t stop smiling in between the coughing fits and literally throwing up on gingers shoulder at one point.

Over all an amazing weekend inbetween sickness.

Wednesday back to bd at keyscoe

I have an appointment at 1030 today so hopefully will get something for it.

@Mary Poppins i do try and ride through most things even if it is just a walk.

But I paid a lot of money for the dressage to music and the ode money I couldn’t afford to just throw away and I wouldn’t have got a refund.

@Star the Fell when it arrives I will get my oh to film us
