Well its all been happening this past week!!
I had an interview with Equipepper as part of her series on new bloggers the interview was based my background in horses and why I start blogging, if you are interested in giving that a wee read you can find it here.
I also had a review done on this blog by Passion for horse the review came about after a few of us got together in the Equestrian Bloggers group and a list was put together to review each others blogs. She produced a indepth and kind review on my blog and it did made me blush a little, you can read that here. (I have one that I posted at the end of last week – it can be found here Equestrian Blog Review: Team Tunnah Eventing)
Anyway on to this post…
If you have read some of my other blog posts you will know by now that I like planning. I like to make my plan. I like to stick to my plan. I like to complete my plan. If something should stop my plan from happening I then sit down. Cry. Then re-plan.
Looking at the month ahead there is a dressage competition right at the beginning of the month which I have entered the two unaffiliated prelim classes in – prelim 13 and 19. This is the first time in a very long time that I will have to learn two dressage tests so I am a little nervous about it. The prelim 13 takes place on a 20×40 arena and the 19 on a 20×60 arena which means I will have to watch the size of my 20m circles. Only recently did I realise that I had been riding a 20m circle in a 20×60 arena wrong… oops! At least we weren’t doing much dressage! I posted last week asking how you guys go about remembering tests and there was quite a few different methods suggested, it just shows you everyone learns differently.
I also have a lesson
planned (I do apologise, I will stop using that word!) prearranged with my flatwork instructor which unfortunately is after the dressage competition. However I will probably take the test sheets along with us so he can have a look and get us prepared for the next one which will be the start of November.
As for our jumping lessons there are two clinics in October but I think I will see if there is space in the second one as the first one is two days before the dressage competition and I imagine I will be flapping about that rather than wanting to jump. Pfft! I say “I imagine I will be flapping”, if I am not muttering to myself and walking weird shaped circles in my living room by then something is wrong!
A woman at the yard did mention about getting a masseuse in for the horses, he apparently is really good at giving them an all over massage I think I will sign Eva up for that and she what she thinks.
We are now also officially in at night for the winter as of last night, safe to say Eva was not impressed at this and destroyed everything she could reach last night. Ah well such is the life of having a diva mare I say ….while I move everything out of reaching distance. 😂
What are your plans for this month, anything exciting coming up ?
Also Have you ever booked you horse in for massage ? Did they enjoy their experience?
