Leo and Olivia are back on Form

Well it’s been really busy in December for Leo and I. As you know we decided Leo was ready for his first competitive run through, post his operation and rehab, of the PFEI team test, on arrival we found that the venue was marquee lined from a recent BD Championship and with it being a competition arena for him that he hadn’t competed in before I did wonder if perhaps this wasn’t our best idea ever!

I was delighted to see that despite a few errors he scored a PB for him on the PFEI team test of 69.62% from a List 1 judge, and equally importantly the areas within the test we had been working on showed real improvement.

Next up for us was the Dressage Under 21’s Christmas Camp where my team and I are completing a fancy dress quadrille, as you can see from the pictures – snowmen were our theme! We had a great time, much laughter and fun times with our friends.

Next up for us is test riding with the GB Pony Selectors in mid January, so for now Leo will have some hacking and relaxing over Christmas and then its back to training for the 2018 season.

Leo and I wish you all a truly magical Christmas, huge thanks as always to Dengie for their kindness and all their support in 2017, I am so proud to be a Dengie Brand Ambassador. Leo has already written to Santa for a ball full of Dengie Grass Pellets on Christmas Day!
