I am the quiet, well-behaved one at the yard. I have an Alter Ego when I am in public, because I think everything is very exciting and I can’t help showing off- at least a bit, especially when I have a new move to impress everyone with!
I love stretching work- it really loosens me up and helps me to relax.
Here are ‘before and after photos of me- as six year old, schooling and competing at novice level, and now at advanced level at the age of 17!
Well, after Claire found a bird’s nest in her top hat in the lorry due to lack of use, she and I have been out and about competing at Advanced ~medium and Advanced level this year so far. I am really enjoying it, and finding the movements easy, as we do lots of fancy stuff at the yard in training! Here I am in the lorry after a couple of successful days out!
Here I am as the cover star for Claire’s new book. Norman did it last time, but this time it’s me, though Mr Foley sneaked one of him on the front cover too- the cheek of it!
I have a fab year so far-I have done a few competitions at advanced medium level. I am liking extended canter a lot- it helps me to do better ‘fancy moves’ like flying changes and pirouettes! I have to up my game as Norman is catching me up fast!
I am a film star again! I was so good at it, that we shot the whole film in 2 days- no mistakes! here I am on the DVD cover, though it was not my best shot- especially with Claire hanging off the side grinning like mad!
She does take her time getting ready. What does she mean, she has to tighten the girth because I blow my stomach out? she seems to stay on board- at least most of the time!
Here I am with Claire and Lorraine dressed up to the nines for our Ride to Music Demo!
Norman’s a fine one to talk- thinking he’s the best over cavalletti- surely I am the pro at everything! Check out my trot with no poles or anything!
Who says dressage horses are rubbish at jumping- we can all prove them wrong!
This new foal arrived recently- who does he think he is- I’ll have to put him in his place! (Actually I like him- he brings out my playful side)
We went to Your Horse Live this year, of course I’ve been a few times- nothing scary here! I wish Claire would stop chatting – I want to show off again!
I am the model for Claire’s Chambon- I like having a good stretch through my back- it feels great!
Here I am as cover star for the Scales of Training Book- of course I nailed it in one go, as usual!
Here I am as a 6 year old in one of my first competitions with Claire. We clicked from the start her and me- its great to have someone you trust!
Here I am in training, learning how to use my muscles. I feel like a gymnast!
Here I am at just one year old-don’t I look young!
