View Full Version : I'm doing a ODE on his majesty!

Yup. He has his first HT a few weeks ago, now he's being thrown into the world of ODEs!:D

Nothing like throwing your horse in the deep end is there?!

Well, actually, it's only going to be a 2ft course, but it'll be Icarus's first go at a dressage test with a canter in! He wouldnt have been able to do it last year.

Wish me luck, dont suppose we'll come anywhere - apparently stopping at all the fences isnt desired...:evilgrin: But it'll be an experience for him, and yet another step up on the ladder of life!

In my part of the world, theres something on every weekend all year, i'm quite lucky.

thats pretty impressive, i think pretty much all grass field competions end around september usually, although i think a few ended in august, maybe some early october depending on where it is

Hmmm, i suppose because we're in sussex, it's all chalk land and drains pretty well, plus there are hundreds of venues! :)
