Abbey and I have had a throroughly lovely day at Solihull Riding Club.

We did the boundary ride and then took to the members field to pop a few of xc fences (not too many as she was tired!)

The boundary ride is beautiful and includes  lots of river crossings (which Abbey now goes through on her own), woodland (with scary logs!) and lots of fields to have a canter in. There is a train line and a motorway parallel to the some of fields but neither Abbey now her friend didn’t batter an eye lit at.

In the xc field she popped all but one of the fences first time – including a ditch. We also did a big step (for us) up out of the water. The one fence she refused, she jumped second time around.

All in all it’s been a fabulous day and Abbey gained some valuable experience xc.
