No competitions this weekend..but some great schooling with Lucinda Green and Andrew McClean clinic here at our place yesterday and today.Last night we were entertaned by Lucinda with a video of Badminton…interesting getting inside information. Today Andrew has a dressage master class here which will be very interesting to watch. Tess Anaderson and Alex Muir working students had fantastic lessons yesterday with Lucinda as well as Nicole McGivern who was then sent to the naughty box by Lucinda and had dressage lesson from Andrew McClean.
It is buzzing with excitement and to make it even more hectic the Ballandean(which is a pony club event of different pony clubs……..i have worked out that they basically gallop around the farm and play games on the ponys…..which are all shapes and sizes) is also on here today.Our horses are getting very broken in to the outside world….without even leaving their paddocks.
