How nice to see this when I arrived at the field yesterday 😍 perfectly in step and happy to see me. We have had fun- yesterday Lizzy and I did jumping with her friend Gem and Amanda, and Bo and I went for a speedy cantering hack and then he popped over some little 1 foot jumps for fun! Today they have both been in the school, we all got rained on but they both tried hard (once madam remembered what schooling was, after a week without doing ANY) #threehearts #dressagelife #smalltourhorse #novicehorse #bootfarm #happyhorseshappyrider #weekendponytime #baltimorevankairos #kwpn #grandvenetian #gingermare #bredandbackedbyme

So, camped last night with my gorgeous man, woke up to a beautiful morning in Oxfordshire. The weather has clearly changed!! I came home and took the ever wonderful #baltimorevankairos to @cherwellcompcentre for PSG and Int1 to assess how effective our training has been. Well, score a big fat win for #teammanègeatrois as despite me being a bit soft on him in the first one, he managed a clear round PSG for 63.8%, and then I was more insistent on reacting forwards from the leg the second time, and he produced a good clear round in the Inter 1 for a stonking 65.13%!!! Great results for us, and I’m sure that the attention from @sanoequine helped him be at his best. @rob_trob you are a genius! And there are still loads of marks we can improve on 💪🏻 Bring. It. On. Sometimes I have to remind myself how far we have come, and that it’s just possible I might make it to to GP one day with this wonderful kind athletic beast. Thanks to those who remind me that it’s okay to be proud on these days, I’m very lucky that my hard work seems to be paying off 🥂 #lizzyandbo #smalltourhorse #dressagelife #bootfarm #outdoorlife #campingatuffington #dancingwithbo #lovingitall

So, there was a tiny hangover after the party last night! But I blew it away riding #baltimorevankairos in the school first thing, going through both PSG and Int1 tests to see how much work we have to do this week! (Plenty, of course!) #smalltourhorse Then I took Lizzy to @fairoakgrange for her first BD there. Another example of being unable to judge feel- I thought her first test was inattentive and hollow, and her second one felt much nicer....we got our qualifying score but not in the qualifier! Not actually a bad thing to have to go out again as I feel we get better in some way each time we go out. Today she coped well with two tests close together, which seemed hard work for her on Wednesday. 67.7 and 65.7, good scores still! Nice comment from second judge. Super pony wasn’t spooky at all in the big outdoor arena either which was fab!! #grandvenetian #gingermare #bredandbackedbyme #novicedressagehorse And keep an eye out for a possible orange mention in a certain equestrian weekly mag... 😉😉 Thanks again @rob_trob @sanoequine and @hack_up_bespoke1 !!

Practicing towards piaffe 💪🏼😍 This little power house Elvin (jazz x Democraat) is soo cool 😎 He is a little 🐯 with a bomproof attitude and a fantastic working mindset 💪🏼 At first the comments were he’s movements are to simple not spectacular or big enough.... Well i’m in love with this little horse who wants to learn everything! In just a few months training he was a small tour horse.... And now he is getting stronger 💪🏼 You don’t need to be spectacular to be cool 🤪💪🏼 • • • #forsale #dressagehorseforsale #dressagehorses #horse #dressuur #piaff #equestrian #dressagerider #smalltourhorse #coolhorse #dressuurtraining #dressagetraining #marijevdheuveldressage #emhdesign #horsetraining #kwpn #knhs #paard #equestrianlifestyle #horsesforsale

The orange madam has today off after a super session with @sanoequine last night. The brown one was stupendous this morning! The piris are really coming on thanks to the help we are having from @rob_trob - he is feeling stronger and more confident. We also worked the change of direction in half pass in both trot and canter, and I am getting better at helping him with this! A little work on the idea of passage-piaffe-passage-piaffe, and to finish, our first look at one tempis for ages. Got two long sides of change-change-extra stride-change-change-extra stride-change-change. Really really pleased with him not losing the plot! He can have tomorrow off... #lizzyandbo #earlystartworthit #dressagelife #smalltourhorse #bootfarm

Loving the heart shaped sun patch- very fitting. Both ponies awesome today! #baltimorevankairos and I had a lesson with @rob_trob and he was stupendous! Really tried hard - had a moment where he needed to be reminded to stay energetic and forwards... Then #grandvenetian tried super hard and we looked at half pass in trot and canter and she is starting to understand. She also had a good look at big trot strides. She gets a lesson with Rob tomorrow...! Lovely sunny morning #weekoff #earlystartworthit #dressagelife #smalltourhorse #loveheartonthefloor #lizzyandbo

Nice backdrop for #baltimorevankairos after our morning ride :) he was very good given the high humidity and we carried on trying to make the right change like the left one, and threw around a few ideas JUST in case we decide to go to the Bronze music champs...which I think might depend on seeing if we can find a friend to go with! Applications on a (virtual) postcard 😂) #earlystartworthit #bootfarm #dressagelife #smalltourhorse

These two 😍😍 Both good in the school today at their respective levels; Lizzy had some rude moments but also some fabulous ones! Definitely looking like half pass at times now 😃😃when she relaxes and just tries it! Bo and I pretty much just worked the canter, that’s where the knowledge is still changing and we make the most mistakes. Concentrated on getting a few quality piri steps and getting changes to try and feel the same both ways without worrying about how many steps between (enough to make sure the canter is good before changing again) and he tried really hard. Lovely pair! #lizzyandbo #threehearts #bootfarm #dressagelife #smalltourhorse #novicehorse #luckyme

#baltimorevankairos Of course you have to roll when it rains for the first time in three weeks...on a show day.... Still, we went to a new venue, and he was blooming fab, loads to improve on but tried some of the tweaks @rob_trob and I looked at last week and they paid off! Was thrilled to get our Area Festival qualification with @lanningsarajane at C, 61.44 and even won the Bronze section!! Very happy day ❤️❤️🥂 good Bosephine 🦄 #smalltourhorse #inter1dressage #dressagelife #bootfarm Lizzy was good this morning, she starts with a better outline and mental attitude lately and we are making progress little by little. #lizzyandbo #threehearts

Yesterday wasn’t our day. The heat may have been a factor though I would say the coolest he was all day was travelling, as being white and well ventilated it’s rather cool on a hot day. We were having a go at our second BD Int1, aiming at an area festival score. That indoor arena truly is our nemesis! I tried a calmer to see if it would make him less spooky and tense but he seemed to just lose his speed of reaction to the aid- so in the warmup he wouldn’t change right at all! In the test he was a stride late once in each of the tempis and also late in the canter zigzag! It wasn’t just us- there were a few who retired during their test. He just needed more energy and I think that was a combination of heat and calmer - I did buy it for Lizzy really and I think her being a bit less reactive can only be good! Means Bo and I have to venture out a bit to try and get our second score! #baltimorevankairos #bigbrownball #kwpn #smalltourhorse #dressagelife

Our wee team....force to be reckoned with. We all were so happy with Farrell today! His 4th ever PSG and his first International, demons everywhere and he really stayed with me! Top 10 with 66.7% with a few tense moments is just an amazing starting point for him. Thank you to these guys with me, absolute legends and especially his owner @fenellarossdressage who drove nearly 7 hours to come see him in the pouring rain! Looking forward to music tomorrow! Thanks to @bolesworthint for having us AND THANKS SO MUCH TO NICK @eventsthroughalens FOR THESE KICK ASS PICS! 😍 #teamireland #cdi #smalltourhorse #thelifeoffarrell #lookatros ’weegrib #buzzing #rain #dressagecompetition #internationaldressage #bolesworth #bolesworthinternational @flyingchangesbespokejackets @horsefirstsupplements @gainequinenutrition @elevator.equestrian @eurostar_equestrian @equiboodle @ @devoucoux @scharfuk @summerhouseequestrian @petrieboots @petrieridingbootsuk @rosmcclelland @andrewluker

So, a trip with #baltimorevankairos the #bigbrownball to #sparsholtcollegedressage today. Entered the PYO class twice, PSG then Int1. He really doesn’t give his best in the indoor and the weather for the first warmup was gross! Quite a few silly slip ups on his part in the PSG, happily he was much easier to ride in the Int1 - as this front sheet shows, we started on about 68%! The canter work is still hard and today his tension meant the bits he should do well were sticky too. But that’s why we practice at shows! Nothing else is like it. Felt the judging was on a par with a BD show, so comfortable with scores of 60.5/60 at this stage of our training in the arena of doom with a gazillion mistakes! Good boy Bo. He’s muddy again now 😂😂 The sun has come out so it’s bubbles in the garden (wrapped up against the wind) and some admin... #dressagelife #lizzyandbo #smalltourhorse #prosecco

Nice way to finish the day after working till 4. Lizzy worked hard at transitions within and between the paces, I think we are getting the hang of this ‘over the back’ thing...at times! Bo wasn’t feeling it with the heat and he hates the afternoon sessions after a day in the field! But, after chasing him round a bit we ran through the Inter I just to see how it felt, and though it was a big sluggish I was very pleased with him nailing the changes after our tough session Tuesday morning. Clever ponies! #lizzyandbo #bootfarm #smalltourhorse #gingermare #bredandbackedbyme #kwpn #bigbrownball

The idea here is to get the changes straighter - sort of worked...he was so stressed about the whole thing that he was just chucking them in everywhere and not really waiting for an aid...but then I asked for some as we went round the outside and they were much better. So it was kind of useful! @rob_trob we did our best!! Lovely sunny morning and the school and fields are pleased that it rained! #lizzyandbo #bootfarm #smalltourhorse #earlystartworthit

Well, that was our most ambitious outing to date! Two PSG tests, one freestyle followed by a straight one. A big ask for both #baltimorevankairos and I! We had fun fitting an extra canter line into our trot music as I don’t really have enough canter music 😂 and upped our score by 5% from last time. Still loads more to come, when rider gets her act together 🤦🏻‍♀️ Straight test was potentially a disaster, as last time in that arena we retired!! I rode bold and he allowed me in and we managed a test that was pretty reasonable for 63% - meaning we have our AF qualification under our belt! By virtue of being the only bronze competitors we got red frillys...! Which I swapped for mints for him and chocolate for me 💪🏻 Thanks @ilovenerro for videoing the second test and saying nice things! Bloody well done yourself!! Day off tomorrow for the donkeys- well earned! #dressagelife #advanceddressage #psgdressage #smalltourhorse #gettingthereslowlybutsurely #lizzyandbo
