Hope you have all had a good start to 2018! It's been pretty wet at Qd horses, but it hasn't stopped us competing the horses. We had Qd Esquire (Morris) out for his first show at Northallerton to music, we used our Lemon tree music to win The elementary Gold section with over 73%. We also got a late entry for the Medium music and won with 69%. He was so good and felt fantastic, and looked so fit and in such great shape.
Also had my sisters coloured horse out at Bishop Burton College to practice for his regional championship in February, he won a big class with almost 74%. He went lovely and could not ask for more from him.
Currently training them all up for the regionals, we have four horses qualified, six classes, and also later in February we will go watch our new horse in Holland, and hopefully get some practice in for my shows over in Holland this year.
My advanced horse Pikkert has been training hard, we took him to Ledston Equine Clinic to use their huge arena so we could practice my floor plans and tests. We also worked some piaffe and passage!! But still green, so not ready for the Grand Prix yet... ha ha ha.
This month is pretty much training and teaching, got some good results coming in from my clients I teach, which is always rewarding.
Next month, I hope to share my regional stories along with my Dutch trip.
Love Sarah & Qd horses
