Moving up the levels
It’s been a very busy few months, lots of competitions and training for me and my horses. My horse Dutchman and I have moved up a level and getting closer to our goal of Under 25 Grand Prix. We have been debuting at Inter A, Inter B and Inter II with success but not amazing scores yet. Both of us are still really green but we are muddling our way through. Every time we go out we are making progress. Anna, my trainer will be teaching me to do something and although I am listening (and trying to do as she says) it takes me at least 10 times to actually understand what she wants me to do or what I need to feel. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey though and the many eureka moments. I am so lucky that Jack (Dutchman) finds the exercises so easy when we get them right. It is one less thing to worry about! My aim is to improve our scores and qualify for the Irish Nationals at Inter II. Lara has been training well, she is for sale and we have been very busy with people interested in her and trying her. I think she is secretly loving the attention!
