So I thought I’d update you a bit on what’s been happening with Sierra.
We’ve done quite a lot hacking and with view like this, who can blame me! The hacking is all exclusive to the Christmas Tree farm we are on and the hills are fantastic, so we’ve been walking up and down them to build up a bit more strength. She has been schooling really well and I’ve done a bit of polework with her.
Last night she went out overnight in a big field (with lots of grass, at last!) with her new friend and neighbour, Thor.
I think they’re going to be great buddies.
This morning after her big night out, she came into the arena a bit on her toes! She called out once to Thor, but then settled straight down to business. I’d put a couple of cross poles out just to school over as I’m not sure how much jumping she’s done while she was on loan, so I wanted to start out just getting our rhythm back
This horse literally makes my heart sing.
