I was so happy to be able to take Karen & Brennan to their lesson in the SUNSHINE today. Now if the weather Gods can put on a repeat performance for tomorrow, I will be ecstatic!
I am really looking forward to tomorrow now. It's going to be another great learning opportunity for the boy and I have a feeling that it is Karen's first competitive start in quite a few years. I hope she enjoys herself. I am sure Brennan will be a good boy and that is bound to help!
If anyone is coming to watch (and we hope you do!), please remember that this competition is being treated solely as a training exercise meaning that if the pony does not do as the pony is asked during his test, the pony will repeat the required move until pony gets it right! We're not after the ribbons or the high percentages, we're looking at this as a learning exercise for a pony stallion who has a whole lot of performing ahead - days like this are about building a solid foundation for Brennan's performance career to be built upon. I'm just super lucky to have such a fantastic rider with so much experience and 'feel' in Karen and a trainer like Becky to help them bring it all together. I am also pretty damned lucky to have a pony like Brennan to take out and show off!!
