March

Boycie and Melody at Aldon

Boycie and Melody at Aldon

After having a few showjumping and combined training outings, the season got underway at Aldon. The weather was certainly not very spring-like but all the horses went well. As well as Pearl and Melody, Laura was competing Boycie, Rachel Sheldon on her own horse Wellie and Mike Jackson competed three novices. The winter work certainly paid off for Melody with her good dressage score of 27. Despite rolling a couple of poles in the showjumping, a fast clear cross country reinforced her love of jumping. Pearl had a good first outing in one of the OI sections.

The rallies have been continuing regularly with a few new partnerships coming along for the first time. Fortunately for this group of first timers the weather was kind and all performed well. The recent jumping rally wasn’t so lucky, after the glorious weather on Good Friday, it was back to usual service the following day with storm Katie doing her best to disrupt things.

Further rally dates will be posted on our Facebook page along with all the yard and competition news.
