Poppy's first 2 phase

Poppy attended her first 2-phase today. She has never been schooled around a cross country course and has had very few experiences of jumping on grass in very wet conditions. There was heavy rain last night  and we were the last to jump in her class meaning the ground was deep at the fences. Poppy was fantastic jumping clear around the showjumping with one stop at the start of the 20 fence cross country course showing her willingness to try anything she is asked.

I have only started to learn how to break horses in riding and get help from Fiona and others with more experience, when needed. So far all our ponies have been successful under saddle and we hope this continues in the future.
