Over for another year!!

Posted by: Julie - 20 Aug 2013 13:12

We both had a great week with Cattistock Juniors, Jack made some new friends & had a ball, learned about canter leads & was 2nd in his ride for the Camp Tetrathalon competition!!  I found it hard initially to take my ‘mummy’ hat off, but it got easier. 

 

We then turned around & went straight to B&SV Junior camp & I was very lucky to have such a fantastic group of girls to work with!!

 

Jack kept informing me of all the cross country fences he’d jumped & Russell came to watch his show jumping on the last day (which I managed to miss) & I saw the video evidence of a super clear round!!  My Girls excelled themselves & all showed me how much they’d improved in lots of different ways by all jumping beautifully for their parents.  The organisers did an amazing job & even managed to find Valerie Singleton to present rosettes on the last day! No sticky back plastic or double sided sticky tape in sight!!

 

I was hoping to get my horses up & going again after camp, but as my diary seems to be filling by the day with lessons cramming in before we go on holiday, it looks like they’re going to have to wait until I get back, a longer holiday for them than I’d intended, but am sure it won’t do them any harm.  I’ve got my work cut out this week teaching Jack how to ride a dressage test for his first ODE next Sunday & in true ‘Julie’ style, it looks like I’ll probably miss his test as I’ll have my Dressage judge hat on as it’s the B&SV PC ODE & I’ve been asked to Dressage judge & SJ course build!  So fingers crossed for Jack, will update you after the event!!
