here we are 4 more days until charly’s first preliminary run….we are so excited! the last two weeks we have been working on getting more “through” or “over his back” and charly has been really starting to look the part of the dressage horse. today he had a bit of spring fever and was quite excited, who can blame him, it was finally sunny! on monday we practiced some angled lines to simulate what we might find on the cross country course (as well as a canter in bounce) and he of course negotiated them like a pro! wednesday we will be practicing our dressage test and on thursday we will stop at brian sabo’s for a final jump school. hope to see many of you this weekend at galway downs in temecula!
