At the end of our physio session, Ruth asked to check Dante’s Saddle again. The first time she had suggested I get a new one as she felt it didn’t sit properly in behind his withers. But to my delight…..
Dante is not like any other horse I have ridden before. He is so sensitive at the mouth & to be honest until you ride Dante, you wont understand what I really mean! I ride him in a snaffle bit, and although some people may suggest using a stronger bit on him for more control, I disagree..
Both Orla & I have run into problems jumping both Dante & Coco in the past. We’re definitely making progress but we never stop learning when it comes to these two horses. And we can definitely say without a doubt that our confidence has been tested on a number of occasions when it came to putting these horses over a jump!
However, the event itself caters for more than just feeding the typical horse lover full of fun, it also has a shopping village, (I will be sure to splurge a little there!) it has a kids zone, this includes train rides & Pony Rides and yes a wiggliest tail competition for Dogs!!
