So today we did a take of Sky's Interdressage entry, it's not going to win any rosettes but considering they were shooting pheasants in the woods above the horses' field (and some of the hunters were in the field with them :xmasfrown: ), she was pretty calm for her!

I've missed quite a few posts here... :thumbup: liking the work in just the neck rein, looking soft and neat in the video :) Are you doing the ID test bridleless?

A moment in time :wink: She's generally better with nothing on her head though! Yes we filmed the test bridleless (nothing in the rules to say it has to be in a bridle, is there?) and there are a few moments when she made it pretty clear that she'd rather do her own thing, but she does eventually listen and do as asked, albeit with the cross tail swish :lol: Should give Trudi a laugh if nothing else :lol:

Lovely to be able to film it bridleless. I'm sure Trudi won't be laughing! I agree with Sheila's comments about the photo, it's lovely.

Today the combination of rain making a noise on the school roof/pheasant shooting in the woods/dog yelping cos she zapped herself on the electric fence all meant that we had to abandon any idea of work and just try to get a bit of calm..... :yoga:
