I`ve just renewed my subsrciptions for the Scottish Endurance Riding Club,(serc).
I was shocked to say the least at the rise in prices, you dont mind a couple of quid here and there, but a tenner!
Its not like its once in a blue moon, either, its every year.
So anyway, I coughed up, whats a soul to do? Liz had all the feed in for me tonight, saved me some time.
I must get to work on Gracie on Sunday, as we are retraining her, it needs to be kept up.
I started Gracie as a 3 yearold. She was the type of horse that you wouldnt look twice at.
When I first saw her I wasnt really struck. She was skinny and standing at just under 15hh. Her eye really caught me, large and clear, bright and big. So after a month of dithering, I finally bought her.
Once home, she didnt give me a moments bother, after three weeks careful work, she was saddled and ridden away. Gracie is now working out several issues, namely, she always wants to rush on and a tendencey to do what she wants.
Of course this is my problem, as I`ve caused it, so its up to me to sort it. This is what my friend and I are upto.
We took her back to the first week after she was bought. That was 7 weeks ago, and now we are long reining through obstacles.
Very shortly she will begin to be taught to jog, and so on. Its a long process but I hope to have her trained by the spring in time for the trec season.
