First competition

IMG_20160129_181748

IMG_20160129_182423The first competition took place at Flyinge. Stina Fridlund rode LA:3 with a very tired Uno. We were at the arena the evening before. He did not care at all, just worked very concentrated. We decided that he just needed a short warm up before the competition, but he became tired anyway. Not easy for him. He has just been ridden 10 months… They ended up at 8th place out of 20. That is good for beeing the first time and he hade a great experience which is most important.

Now Uno has two weeks off, as planned. He needs a rest. That will do him good before next step of hos education.IMG_20160130_090749

Pay & Ride – scary / not scary…

IMG_4861 Uno is now 6 years old and at his first Pay & Ride.
Stina did a good job guiding him through this new experience. At first, he became afraid of the judge table, but after a short moment, he did not care at all. Very much tension subsided and after a while he worked quite relaxed. This Pay & Ride was a great day for him to experience a show arena without pressure.
I am pretty sure he will fall asleep easily tonight!

First time at Clinic

Uno did his first job in front of audience 26th of December.
Uno clinicI had three days of Dressage Course at Lunds Civila Ryttarförening. Stina and Uno did their first “official” work showing “Preparation – Do – Credit!” which was the theme of the clinic.

They also rode a dressage test for the first time and practiced to be calm to the crowd’s applause.Uno meddellinjen

 

The sponsorship cooperation continues

I will continue to sponsor my riding student Stina Fridlund. She will ride and compete Uno and I will be Stinas trainer. We set up a common plan for Uno with the goals that he shall do Young Rider Championship with Stina and Swedish Championship with me. Stina has a very good feeling for the horses and riding. It is with great pleasure I collaborate with her and we very much look forward to the coming years.
