Amalie is this weeks star ⭐️
Earlier in the year we had a new member join the team for our youngest rider, Amalie Bearman.
Amalie now has a very exciting new mare called Coshla Philippa (Misty) to run alongside her other 148 Kriso. We’ve spend the last few weeks training at home and at school hires to give the new combination time to get to know one another.
We spend a couple of weeks focusing on flat and pole work, which helped Amalie understand the importance of ride ability in the ponies, and the ground work that has to go into them to enable the ponies and rider to perform to best of their abilities.
Amalie’s hard work over half term paid off as ventured out on Sunday to a show with both ponies, to come home with multiple placings and clear rounds!
Amalie and Misty jumped 2 perfect clears in the British Novice and Discovery, a very promising start for these two. Amalie stuck to plan we had made during our course walk to produce textbook rounds with both ponies, also jumping clear with Kriso.
Amalie showed knowledge and talent beyond her years the last few weeks by learning every day and putting everything she had learnt into practise at the show. It’s very impressive to walk the course with an 11 year old and have her understand and take on board each instruction, distance and which lines to ride to each fence to then see her riding exactly how we had planned to in the ring.
It was a great start to the outdoor season for our pony team, with a very exciting summer ahead! Top job Amalie. 👏🏼
