Paeon in work
Visited Ryan's at Heatherbrae this afternoon to see Paeon working with Emma. Making sound progress; more consolidated in working into the bridle and learning to maintain shoulder-in off the rider's inside leg, happy in trot but still working out whether to bend/flex in canter, or speed up.
Emma rode him down to the cross-country course when she gave a lesson the other day and he behaved very well; gave him his first look at a range of obstacles. Eyes popping!! He may get his first start at the new Denman ODE at the end of June, in an "encouragers" class.
A really grey, rainy afternoon today so the indoor photos are also rather 'grey'.
It's been too wet to jump in the outdoor jumping arena so far!
