These are all cell phone videos so they’re not great (especially the dressage and stadium) but I wanted to post them for the complete experience.
XC is just the first jump.
And if you’re curious, this is a video of the complete training XC course that Dandy did. You can just see him waiting for the start at the beginning. 🙂
I have so many things I want to share, not the least of which is my new saddle and the rest of Aspen Farms H.T.! But I am also extremely busy trying to get ready for a big vacation next week so bear with me and in the mean time, enjoy the dressage video from Aspen.
I’ll get to see my boy tomorrow! So excited!
So just for fun, enjoy this old video of Dandy lunging as a five year old.
This is the selling video that Wind N Wood posted of Dandy lunging. He’s a bit stiff at points but you can see the potential in him.
Just a little video from our schooling tonight. I had to sit it up on the jump standard so you can’t see it all the time.
We had a few issues and moments today, such as Dandy insisting that he cannot do a 20 meter canter circle to the left… silly racehorse! But I think over all it was productive. We were both sweaty and exhausted at the end.
ETA: I’m not sure why it’s showing as a link instead of a video but oh well. If you want to watch, you can just copy and paste in your browser.
On this day, two years ago… Dandy ran his very first race.
(He’s the one in white and black “cow” silks)
And yes, he did not do well… 8th place.
