XC schooling in the sunshine!

Had a lovely day up at Lindores XC course doing a little XC schooling as preparation for our first BE of the year at Kirriemuir next weekend. Heidi was very enthusiatic and on really good form, jumping everything first time of asking. We jumped everything that we could find that had a ditch involved and she was really good, didn't even hesitate or think about stopping, even over the coffin or quite an airy trakhener. :)

Had her jumping nice and confidently on/off the bank and also had a really good couple of runs through a drop fence to tyre fence combo. Water fence was too deep to do more than wade through although with the course being on a hill, the ground was spot on and not too wet at all. :) She jumped really nicely over their pretty skinny corner fences too, so very pleased.

Hopefully she will be as enthusiastic and good next weekend!

A wee SJ lesson with David Gatherer at SNEC tomorrow night for a last minute tune up and then some dressage practice at home through the week. As our section next weekend is on first and it's quite a distance away, we are going up the day before and staying over. It will be our first time "camping" together, hope she likes it and behaves! She will be stabled on site and I have had the lovely offer of a space in my friend's lorry which will be far warmer/comfier than a tent. :)

Sadly no photos from today, but Bob being dragged along next weekend! :)
