So I thought it was time for a Demi aka Nancy Drew update! For those of you who don't know, I got this horse in June from her home state of KY. She's a 7 yr old unraced TB mare that's 15hh.
We had a fantastic lesson last Wednesday with my trainer! Demi had been getting a little rushy over fences so my trainer helped me bring her back to how she was before, as well as working on her cross-cantering to the right problem. Both got tremendously better and I'm excited to see what this year brings for us!
The downside to the whole situation is that I won't be able to compete until late July, or possibly until I move to KY for college in late August There was a XC schooling last weekend that I did not attend because Demi hadn't had a lesson since December and we didn't feel that it would be appropriate. Next XC schooling is next weekend, I will be at Rolex watching the advanced riders go. As much excitement as that brings, I can't help but think what I'll be missing at home. However, my trainer Jamie is going to be schooling Demi while I'm gone so that's an up side. All the other schoolings, I'm working and won't be able to attend. As honest as my horse is, I don't know that it would be wise to spend the $ on something that I don't know is going to end up well.
Anyway, here are some photos (from video) of our lesson and a bonus one at the end of our mini horse trial last August (we did BN!)
