***IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MONDAY’S PRACTICE DAY***
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday. Just a couple of notices about the running of the day:
Due to a slight glitch with the online entry system there are more than 10 people booked on the 12-1pm and 1-2pm 80cm slots. This will not be an issue at all for jumping purposes, but to avoid anyone hanging around to use the dressage arena you are very welcome to use it before you walk the XC, or any time earlier in the day before your slot when it is quiet. The same applies to everyone.
When you are walking the cross-country and deciding on your route, please be aware of riders on the course. This is not a competition so there will not be fence judges at every fence blowing whistles and telling you to mind your backs, so stay alert and move out of the way if you see a horse coming!
The aim of the day is to encourage and build confidence, but we do ask, please, that you ride the cross-country as a course and do not ‘school’ your way round over non-related fences. This is for the safety of those on foot as well allowing the day to run smoothly.
And finally…have fun! We aim to provide as relaxed and friendly experience as possible, so if you have any questions at all – however silly they may seem – please do come and ask! …
Show jumping is up for Monday’s Eventers Practice Day! Starting at 60/70cm, fillers pulled out so perfect for young/inexperienced horses. We still have spaces for this height in the morning. Book at www.lodgefarmcrosscountry.com…
– First cross country training in 2 years
– First time training without mummy Slade or an instructor
– My first time driving the box!! 😱
Thankfully I had nothing to worry about because Marlow travels like a dream, I barely knew he was in there!
We had the most amazing time and really really made me miss eventing…might have to rethink the pure dressage career and try to come out of eventing retirement 🙈
Big thanks to supergroom Kirsten who provided emotional support when driving and super videos! ❤️
