Indoor TREC winter series

What a brilliant report. That first photo is very confusing because Ali looks so grown up, Sky looks bigger than G and the NO doesn't look like she's far off from being the right size for G!

Cracked me up about Eowyn falling off....the mounting block. Does she have to make cake for that?

Well done to Ali for coping so well with the ride and lead.

It all sounds positive and Sky probably hasn't had much exposure to an indoor school, so it's understandable (and you will be able to work on it). Well done all three of you :cheerleader:

:thumbup: Some great pics anyway, the horses are looking good, and Ali managed a smile once she was on her own with just horses and no NO :lol: as for falling off the mounting block :roll:

Wasn't really her fault, G somehow nudged her as he was moving into position and she lost her balance. Was funny though :lol:

Does that mean G has to make the cake?

Nice trip out to watch the TREC comp at the local riding school today. Didn't even get rained on :-D We can't do it any more there as since we moved livery it's to far to hack.

Nice to see a lot of the horses were bitless and/or barefoot. Got a good look at a Transcend bridle today, interesting idea (kind of a bitless double bridle).
Bit pricey though, as these things always seem to be......

Also nice to see some fellow hairy scruffy types, I love that Treccies aren't hung up on the whole turnout thing :lol:

My favourite Fjord cross was there too

As always great shots and good to see the more relaxed approach.

So we get to go to an indoor TREC next weekend, courtesy of Christine, who has offered Ali a ride on Kismet, the Fjord cross. Today we dodged the rain long enough to go up so they cold have a practise. Kis was not at all impressed with Ali at first and didn't really see why she should do as asked by this total stranger.

Ali of course is wise to the ways of opinionated yellow ponies so soon had her going round the course, although she did keep stopping to ask for her treat after every obstacle :lol:

And doing the corridor in hand evoked a truly murderous expression.....

But Kis won the Level One category in the national league last year, so she has no excuses for not producing the goods, and after about half an hour Ali had learned the right buttons to press......

Looking forward to next weekend now. Christine is going to be riding Elsie, her lovely youngster from Chamfron Stud, by their Criollo stallion.
