Today is test day for Lance.
He’s getting more and more confident in his new, more powerful balance. In training every day, we work on parts of the test, some days linking 2 or 3 parts together. Once a week we ask him to link all the parts and run through a full test. That includes cantering up the ramp to the entrance at the dressage court to finishing with the salute at C. Last week we tried out the Grand Prix test and we’ll go through that test again today. Next week we’ll run through the Grand Prix Special before the show.
The show is next Saturday/Sunday at Del Mar Showpark, GP and the GP Special.
The weather has been quite foggy in the early mornings this week. It’s a careful drive to the stable in such dense fog…really glad we can avoid the freeways to get there!!!
Off to the navigate another “Maids in the Mist” drive to Arroyo…
