A day out with the girls

On Saturday, Tracey L took her girls to Area Dressage...


“Addy (Landgirl) did an elementary test, number 48, scoring 59% – unfortunately not high enough for her to get placed, but she is a bit of a ‘marmite’ horse for dressage judges – they either love her or hate her.

“She went really well and enjoyed her first outing since her tendon injury at the end of the last event season – although she was slightly disappointed that there was no showjumping or cross-country after the dressage!

“The main reason for the outing was to take my sister Nicki’s new horse Winnie (Girlie Intuition), whom I luckily have the ride on, to her first show. We’ve only had her for two months, so we’re still getting to know each other. She’s still very green and babyish, so we wanted top take her out to a dressage competition as part of her training towards, we hope, eventing her next season.

“She did a wobbly but sweet first test – she’s still a little bit unbalanced and with such long legs she sometimes gets them in a pickle. But we managed to stay inside the arena and produce a reasonable first test.

“Overall I was extremely please with both the girls – we had a lovely day out, and most importantly we kept all four legs on the ground.”
