A year yesterday I set off to collect Hattie and Gilda, a mare and foal I had only met twice and had never touched or handled. Gilda at 5 months was just a baby so pretty straight forward but her 5 year old mum was totally unknown and could have been a nightmare...but she turned out to be an angel
Two months before I collected her
and a year later
The following year we did this
We went out to a training meet with the bloodhounds and she behaved as if she’d been a million times
The Opening Meet was great fun.
Gilda filled out and lost some of the yearling uglies.
June ‘12 - at Mum's camp.
So many photos in July , that I like, but here are a few :)
Hattie learns to lead the way
Then this last year...

and our first SJ competition https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBaIF7t2oMc
and a friend got her to do this
and with another friend...
and we recently tried a few steps of medium trot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1M6miOvxGs
and baby Gilda did this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsxfIoqebqs
And today Hattie got a 4th in the 2' SJ class at my local club and just had a pole down in the 2'3 but she seemed to really enjoy it.
I love my haffies and I'm so chuffed with them.
