Dressage Competition Report - 02/12/2017

Earlier this week, I took the plunge to re-affiliate my membership to British Dressage and joined Louie up for the first time. I'd managed to find time in my work schedule to take a long weekend, so thought a Saturday dressage competition was a great way to spend one of the days!!


After all of the wet weather we have had over the last week, I wasn't looking forward to bathing, and working back from our first test time, I was due to start washing at about 8am. So I thought I'd try something a bit different - washing his tail and legs the evening before. With the icy conditions outside, I opted for the "warmth" of the barn, using buckets of warm water and a sponge brush. Thankfully, Andrew was on hand to keep us topped up on clean water. After a quick towel dry, I bandaged all four legs for the night. I knew that the fronts would be fine, but wasn't sure whether I'd find some stains on his back legs where he had pooped through the night.

November Round Up


I don't think I ever sit down to write one of these reports and struggle for content... Ever month seems to be jam packed with activity and days out.

November was full of training sessions, both on the flat and jumping, as well as a dressage competition at a local venue. We've shared our favourite Instagram accounts, why we think Premier Equine make the best winter rugs and our riding ambitions as part of November's blog hop!

So read on to take a flick through the month in full...
