The last 2 weeks - Blue tick achieved!

Hi everyone! Here is what Darcy and I have been up to the last couple of weeks. About 2 weeks ago Darcy and I joined the Gallop A-Team to spend 8 weeks focusing towards preparing for and eventually attempting the gallop assignment. I had a play day in Cooroy last Saturday. I filmed my bareback assignment and had a lesson for the simples assignment with Fiona.  During the bareback assignment Darcy was having some trouble with right circles and was getting very braced and counter-fl

Our last couple rides have really been focused on getting Darcy’s right canter lead, having him softer and more wiling in the direct rein turns and just generally improving my bareback seat to help him out more (especially during rein positions and that canter transition).

The muscle therapist came out and treated Darcy, he was sore and reactive on both sides in his chest, back, croup and hamstring region, as well as over his poll and his sacroiliac joint - he also couldn't move his head up and down from the poll. He improved a little after the first treatment

Back at it

Hi everyone.  So I've made yet another blog! I want to keep my Level 2 stuff and HiM stuff seperate blogging wise. Darcy and I currently have 4 assignments to go until we finish our Level 2! The bareback, simple leads, non-contact and contact riding leads (so all riding). My goal is for us to complete our Level 2 by the end of the year, in time for the Level 3 QSE camp we will be attending with Shane and Meredith in Woolooga next year (so excited). Darcy and I had a bit of a break from
