Lagan's return to the competition arena

A couple of weeks ago a good friend sent me an SOS message regarding one of her pupils, a young girl whose TB gelding was suffering from an undiagnosed lameness (Massey tests pending). Aimee was getting pretty down over her horse being out of action and was desperate to ride. Would I consider lending her Lagan? Lagan, hairy yetti beast who was growing fatter and fatter in the paddock whilst I focussed my riding attention on Reilly. I thought it sounded like a fabulous idea so agreed and a little over a week ago they drove down and collected him.

Today they had their first outing together at the Kinross PC Dressage/SJ day. Aimee had elected to do the 60cm class when she first entered and after riding Lagan for a few days had decided she would really prefer to enter the 80cm class but, by the time they got to the event, it was too late to change classes so they did the easier class.

Dressage went very well with a score of 73.33% and third place and SJ was clear leaving them in third place overall (in a class of thirty six competitors) - Great effort Aimee and good boy Lagan. Check out the SJ pic - don't think he wanted to touch those poles! LOL!
