July Round Up

With a holiday booked mid-July, I've done quite a bit with Louie in the last few week of June, but heading into July, we did a local dressage test. Louie was a bit tense, but took the rein forward and down much better - it's all work in progress. We came home with a 5th with 62.92% so I was pleased.


Louie was then on holiday. I went on holiday for a couple of weeks a week later and at the end of July, I brought him back into work. After almost a month of doing nothing, Louie was clearly ready to do some work. He's come back into work relaxed & refreshed, and really willing to get cracking!

After a getting back onboard in the school a couple of days before, we decided to have our first EVER go at cross country - I've done low level eventing with Thomas, but Louie has never done any XC!!

See how we go on in our cross country blog post.


Due to holidays, we also didn't have any lessons during July, but we're planning to get some in during August, both on the flat and showjumping. We've got a couple of competitions coming up that we are thinking about too, so hopefully we will have lots to update on by the end of the month.
