I was supposed to be moving in a week with my dad and his mare and a friend, but the treatment of our horses was horrific as soon as we gave our months notice to the point of outright cruelty.
So we moved. Lovely yard, Dubai is now turned out HURRAH and spent yesterday prancing around.. wish I had my phone to film it, his trot looked... amazeballs.
I lunged and rode him yesterday and the little wonder didn't put a foot wrong. I am stoked to think of competitions!
So, new yard, new trainer.
First lesson is this evening, and new trainer has trained and ridden and won 3yo championships.. back in the day.
She seems extremely competent, and is very excited to work with Dubai and I, and I have asked her to sit on him, see what she feels, and what we need to work on- that will most likely happen this evening.
At his age, and basic w/t/c what should I be expecting of him, and what should I be looking out for training wise? I don't want a rushed horse into a pushed frame.
I should also add that I am only at this yard for 10-12 months before the whole of this camp moves to another part of Germany...
