One more sleep until Team Dengie embark for Milton Keynes Eventing Centre
31st May 2012
The last few weeks we’ve all been busy preparing. The awful weather at the beginning of May didn’t help with our preparations as many events were cancelled, which was disappointing for all involved. Jonathan Allison has been fantastic providing us with show jumping and cross country jump training. Honing our skills and working on our weaknesses to make sure we’re as ready as we can be.
Milton Keynes Eventing Centre hold training days in preparation for the 3-day event. Vicki-May, Maureen, Sally and I attended a training day last weekend with Vinnie, Alfie, Fitz, Fizz and Storm all putting in good performances; let’s hope this run of form continues.
The road and tracks and steeplechase phase is particularly challenging as in a normal BE event we don’t undertake this phase, so it was great to receive some training and top tips on how to ride this phase. The good thing is that this phase really does get the horses warmed up, switched on and the blood pumping ready to tackle those cross country fences.
The next couple of days we’re all working on our dressage; with test practice to try and give as polished performance as possible. I might also give both of the horses a jump at home, just so that were all ready for the weekend; me included!
Then it’s packing the lorry – it really is amazing how much stuff you need!
