Marty ends his breaking in styleMarty has had a busy summer of learning and has responded well to breaking, even though he is only a baby and a rather big baby at that. Loading and travelling have been no problem to him and over the summer we have gone to a local riding school to do cross country (including water jumps) and showjumping. He has been superb and nothing seems to be a problem for him once he understands what is required of him.
We thought before we stood him down for the winter we would use the local gymkhana as a final piece of his breaking. He loaded well, travelled well and was not phased by the hustle and bustle of a busy show. He went in a cross-pole class and stood in line with everybody else, he had a double clear round and got his first rosette. So a great end to a great bit of work by Lynsey ably assisted by Fiona. Thank you team
