What’s Bob been up to …

Horse: Bob - B. Grandeur - February 4th, 2011

Boib has had a nice and varied week so far ..

He went for a nice relaxing hack yesterday taking in the Lake District fells which always keeps him happy.

Wednesday being ‘Jumping night’ we went for a trip up to Greenlands EC where he did well. He was entered into 95cm and 1.05m classes – 95cm wasn’t his forte as he refused one of the scarier looking fences (he is only a baby). The second class he came into his own and put on a good show. He well cleared most the course with a nice steady pace but unfortunately got an ‘unlucky’ (as phrased by the commentator) 4 faults which, after much deliberation, was put down to rider error (oops!)

Tuesday was his hacking day again, a nice steady walk out.

Monday was a flatwork day in the arena where he did well.

Today we are meant to be building a course in the school to put him through his paces, but, unfortunately being in the Lake District means we are often afflicted with severe weather warnings and today happens to be rain and gale force winds! There is little chance of the fences staying up regardless of Bob’s performance so we will just have to wait for the storm to die down …
