Sunday October 10th – INTERCLUB DRESSAGE

Dolfor were on good form. Helped along with some stunning weather, Dolfor put in some top results which added to a very enjoyable day.

Helen Hawker started off the day with a red rosette on her very lovely young horse, and Sally and Juliet 2nd and 3rd in the Intro A. Dolfor again took the 3 top spots in Intro C; Maggie Juliet and Jo. Prelim 13 and the red rosette was claimed by Vyrnwy’s Alice Newby while 2nd and 3rd went to Dolfor’s Nicola on Abbey and Beck, with Frank showing that its not all about jumping!

Once lunch was over and Pelim 18 was underway Dolfor continued to be on good form. Alice and Anna came to an equal 1st, Sue and Saffy taking the 2nd spot and Adrian and Foxy taking the yellow ribbons and 3rd place. Finally in both Novice classes, Dolfor again shone with Anna, Kay and Adrian taking ribbons in the Novice 27 and Kay, Sue and Beck rounding off the day in Novice 30.

A huge thank you to all that helped on the day, to everyone that competed and to lots of beautiful and well behaved horses – it wouldn’t have been possible without you.

An evening on zoom with AMANDA HOLLOWAY, discussing CONFIDENCE and PARTNERSHIPS

Tonight we had a really amazing evening and we will have an opportunity to have a lesson or series of lessons in late November/early December – You need to BOOK YOUR INTEREST NOW – I promise you, you wont regret it.

Here is what some who attended the zoom evening had to say:

“‘my nugget is to look at my horses ears approaching jump and see when is on the rider πŸ€£Knowing him, he asks me a question – need to listen. Loved the jumping checklist – so glad I didn’t miss tonight”

“She is so knowledgeable and has such first hand experience but puts it across in such a way I can actually understand it and relate to it (and hopefully put in to practise) Loved the process of each stage of the jump and the ears is something I’ve not really looked at….going to watch the show jumping on you tube now πŸ˜„ Also the elbow positioning reiterated what Jane was telling us in our lesson tonight! “

“Her philosophy can be applied to ALL aspects of our lives. 2 positives for every negative. Before we know it, there will be NO negatives!!!”

“Thank you for tonight – inspirational”

“Thank you so much. I put some of your advice to good use in my lesson this morning πŸ˜Š. “Ride every stride”is now my new mantra, I seriously lack focus and it really really helped πŸ€©πŸ₯°
