Well another very successful day with Sunny boy at Addington on Sunday. A very busy warm up made for a lively ride but not a wild one like last time out! Competing in two prelims for the first time Sunny was fairly pooped by test number two but the judge liked him (definitely more than she liked me!) and he got two very good percentages of 74 and 75.
Probably time to ride him with a proper schooling whip now, not the dwarf size one made for dressage shetlands that I currently use. It only dawned on me in the second test that it actually did not reach behind the large saddle cloth he was wearing and therefore had very little effect!
