Well we did it - Our first dressage test

Again Reilly has knocked my socks off with his amazing mind. He soaked everything up today like a big brown hairy sponge and never put a foot wrong. It's true that we have a very long way to go before we are ready for registered competition but, for a horse that has been under saddle for a month, quite frankly I think he is amazing.

The test was quite wobbly and my riding was abysmal but we still scored a perfectly respectable 61% with encouraging remarks from the judge. The photos are taken from a video so apolgies for the quality. The video is not for public consumption just yet as I am still trying to get over the state of my riding and the size of my thighs!!!


  1. He's going beautifully. A real credit to you!

  2. What a good boy Reilly is. I can see why you love him so much. Are you sure you want to geld him?
