The past few weeks have been incredibly busy. At the beginning of April I moved back to Florida to get KH Eventing back in full swing. I am now available for lessons and training in the Northeast Florida area.
The horses have settled in quite happily. Grey and EZ have teamed up to be best friends. Aside from when EZ and Buzz decide they are playing stallion. Bruce is happy go lucky and hangs out with whoever.
Buzz and I headed off to the Ocala International last weekend and we have a lot to work on. Our dressage needs more swing and engagement, which is hard when you’re a 5 year old growing giraffe.. It will get there. He impressed us all in the chaotic warm up to keep his cool and go in and jump a double clear round. Cross country started a bit sticky, where he flashed back to his YEH courses after 4b. We took a gallop and need to work a bit more on adjustability so we can come back for the 5th fence.
The rest of the course flowed well and he made easy work of some tricky combinations. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that he has been in Eventing training since August and he’s already done his second training.
Grey and Bruce will most likely start doing trot sets together now as they start to gear up for big things this fall! It’s much easier to keep grey loose and relaxed. He can get very tense on trot sets and I need him loosening his body and swinging through so we will try this for a little while and see how it works. More enjoyable for all of us.
We also got our 2019 TB Makeover horse in Tuesday. Everyone meet Bosa Flow. He’s a 5 year old gelding, who I am very excited to start working with. He seems to have the mentality of Bruce! We leave for Kentucky Monday to atten LRK3DE. Maybe I’ll start being a better blogger...
