QOTD: Would you teach your horse to rear on command? -
-
Had a really nice little schooling session on her tonight! I think when she's had a week off schooling it's easier to take it easy on the first day back, have a nice short schooling session and not too demanding! I'm so glad her canter has come back again, her transitions are nicer and she's much easier to ride in the canter. -
-
We've been working on walk to canter because we can combine it in with the jumping and I think I'm going to start trying to do some canter to walk to get her really listening to my seat. We had a couple of attempts today and she second one was a huge improvement straight away! -
-
Possibly hacking tomorrow but if not will have another schooling session and hopefully work a bit more in the trot, I want to work on straightness too so will probably set some poles out. -

QOTD: How often do you hack?
-
-
Darcy behaved absolutely perfectly on a hack today with both  @erin.s_eventing's ponies! She takes so much confidence from others on hacks and behaved so well... just doesn't like to get her feet muddy and wet 😂 -
-
Not sure what our plan is tomorrow but will either school or hack I think, it's nice to be hacking again- even if it's not as regular as it used to be. I know getting back to schooling will be a nightmare but I think she will feel mentally better about it! -
-
Here she is modelling her absolutely beautiful @iceequestrian.1 bridle that we haven't actually ridden in yet- soon😍😍

QOTD: What's your horses Show Name? -
-
I had another jump today, don't shoot me for jumping three times in a week, it's rare and she won't jump for a week or so now... I had the opportunity and help to have a good relaxing jump to help build up our confidence a bit after me being so tense yesterday. -
We had a pop down a grid of bounces and she worked so super, really picked her feet up nicely and ended up popping the last one up a bit bigger! We also made a nice corner out of poles to give me some confidence before the cross country course opens because I want to master corners this year! Also had a play with a couple of other jump set ups that we haven't done before. -
-
Over all I'm feeling way more positive about today in comparison to the rest of the week! I think In between lessons I need to have a good jump on my own to relax and have a play, she was so super! Love her dearly ❤️

QOTD: What's your favourite horsey memory? -
-
Had a nice clear round jump on Darcy today, she jumped nicely in the warm up and then was super to jump around. She rushed the first round and we knocked a few poles but I was so tense. The second round we worked a lot better in and went clear, was proud of the improvement into the second round but I'm so mad about how tense I get to jump and I don't know why. -
-
I'm not sure what I'm doing on her tomorrow yet, probably school her unless there is someone to hack with! Things aren't too great In my personal circumstances at the moment which might be one reason I was so tense but I'm sure I'll get there! -

#failfriday ! Video from last year, we've come a long way from here but this is probably one of my favourite falls 😂😂
-
-
I've had a really bad couple of days, really struggling so I just did some light stretchy work with Darcy today, no asking for contact and just had a nice walk and trot around allowing her to stretch. We've got clear round jumping tomorrow so we will have some fun. Going to take things easy for a little while💖

QOTD: Do you prefer Edits or Raw Videos? -

Sorry for the late post, been a horrid day but had a really nice Valentine's meal tonight so all cheered up! Darcy had an absolute super lesson tonight, she worked so hard and was tested with things we have never seen before and some tricky lines! Our lessons with Izzy really test us and it's good! -
-
She worked so hard, a bit rushed at times but jumped everything put in front of her and we really improved throughout lesson, I really need to sit back but it's really improving now I've had my back done! I've put her back in the snaffle for jumping because although she's strong she doesn't argue with me so much. -
-
Over all I'm really pleased with how she went tonight😊💖

Over- Rugging Horses...
-
-
We seem to have a major issue in the horse world for over-rugging horses, it's also not helping with the rising issue of Obesity in horses too. -
-
Can you imagine being In bed, wearing your PJ's/ Electric Blanket and your duvets/blankets. Imagine being in bed and not being able to take off your layers when you're getting too hot. That's how your horse feels when they get too hot, the only difference is- they can't do anything about it until you get there the next morning. It's much easier for a horse to warm themselves up than it is too cool down, they are able to Eat more/ Increase Muscle tone/ Move around and they can change their metabolism. Horses that are too hot will drink more but they don't have the capability to do much else. -
-
Health issues from over-rugging can vary massively... it can damage body cells and tissues, affect their immunity and their thyroid gland function,  can cause obesity and along side many more issues it can also be serious in breeding horses in both Stallions and Mares. -
-
All horses vary in what they need. The first year I owned Darcy I made a massive mistake of over rugging Darcy. I spent a lot of time asking on Facebook and asking friends what they thought she would need but what I didn't consider is they didn't know Darcy. From then I've realised she's a massively hot horse and this winter hasn't had anything more than a 200g in the day and a 300g over night. All horses are different and you really need to trust your own instincts as to what rugs to put on your horses!

QOTD: What Colour is your Show Jacket? -
-
Last night was a bit of a strange one really, after the week we've had I was absolutely terrified about what to expect from her through the tests but she did a lot better than she has been. -
-
It's our first time doing three tests and tbf we were both knackered by the time it came to the third! She was inconsistent in the contact, but worked well in all three paces! She did some brilliant Centre lines and a couple of brilliant halts but we got marked down because I didnt realise you couldn't salute with your whip hand 😂 (learn something new everyday!). Her prelim test was lovely and got one of our best scores, I'm so thankful that she cantered without having a tantrum! -
-
So we did our first Novice test last night, was interesting... she worked really well despite being cold and tired- but my brain was absolutely fried and I went wrong in the test. Picked up where we left off but I got really stressed and we had an incorrect strike off on the next canter but after I settled back down she worked really well. We ended up with 57.68% which 5 months ago we were getting at Intro, think it's a brilliant score if you consider the going wrong, canter lead and the fact I saluted with the wrong hand! -
-
She tried really hard and can't fault her, she can have a nice well deserved day off today! -

QOTD: Do you like Cross Country -
-
Sorry for the late post! Had a good Polework clinic tonight. Darcy was really feisty to start with but settled down after a while, her canter transitions were much better and she decided to remember what left canter was, just hoping she keeps it up for tomorrow. - -
We did lots of exercises on serpentines, leg yielding and raised poles. We ended the session with lots of canter work, walk to canters and then cantering across the diagonal to help prepare for tomorrow. Not sure how well tomorrow is going to go but fingers cross she settles down nicely! -

QOTD: Do you have more dressage or flat lessons? -
-
Darcy was an absolute twat on our second ride yesterday, so good in walk and trot and actually she was good in her canter minus the transitions into the left but we ended up spending so much time trying to get this right and just got wound up with eachother. After some help from a friend, she settled down and we had a nice trot and couple of canters. -
-
Today we did a group Gridwork clinic and she behaved really well, she was so heated and again didn't fancy the canter transitions but she jumped brilliantly. Although her transitions have been a bit sticky she actually is working very well in her canter which made jumping so much easier today. She had her moments but jumped the brush and the wall first time😊 She flew down some grids and the last jump in the video was a decent size, might do a couple of individual Gridwork sessions soon. -
-
After asking on Facebook it seems like everyone is having trouble with their horses at the moment so I'm really just putting this behaviour down too the weather, hormones and the fact winter has been so bizarre this year... -

QOTD: If you could have any design on a saddle pad... what would it be? -
-
Had a really nice hack on Dars yesterday, she behaved impeccably despite not going on the road for months. She had a few spooks at little things but was brilliant with vans/ trailers/ cars and only saw one lorry who pulled over and turned off his engine to let us by- she was super and once past the lorry settled down! -
For some daft reason I rode this morning in the wind, we had some really good moments and a few dickhead moments too- can't really blame her though;( I think I might ride her again later if the wind has settled and now she's had a day of turn out! -

QOTD: Do you like dressage? -
-
Had a lesson with a new instructor today, tried out a new bit which really wasn't right for her, she was still strong but was throwing her head and herself around too much... after speaking to a friend with a similar horse I'm wondering whether to stick to the normal bit and just deal with the fact she gets strong🤔 -
We did a lot of work on lines/angles today and she worked really hard- was very hot headed but started to settle- the moment we turned it into a course she exploded again though... we did a brush jump and a triple too. She's gone from not stopping to rushing 😂 -
I had my neck and shoulders done today and feel so much better for it, I can finally sit up! Hacking her tomorrow and will probably school her at the end of it to give her a canter too- cancelled my jump lesson on Saturday because of time but going to do the Gridwork clinic on Sunday- will use Saturday to run through my dressage tests! -

QOTD: Do you like dressage? - - Had a lesson with a new instructor today, tried out a new bit which really wasn't right for her, she was still strong but was throwing her head and herself around too much... after speaking to a friend with a similar horse I'm wondering whether to stick to the normal bit and just deal with the fact she gets strong🤔 - We did a lot of work on lines/angles today and she worked really hard- was very hot headed but started to settle- the moment we turned it into a course she exploded again though... we did a brush jump and a triple too. She's gone from not stopping to rushing 😂 - I had my neck and shoulders done today and feel so much better for it, I can finally sit up! Hacking her tomorrow and will probably school her at the end of it to give her a canter too- cancelled my jump lesson on Saturday because of time but going to do the Gridwork clinic on Sunday- will use Saturday to run through my dressage tests! - - - - - Fed on @thepurefeedcompany Sponsored by @lc_designs_horsewear Team Account: @lc_designs_horsewear.team BA for: @iceequestrian.1 Model for : @beaux_equestrian Daily Magnetic Therapy by @ecogreenequestrianltd & @premierequineengland Extras Account: @ddw_extras #bodylle  #teamlcdh  #poweredbypure 

QOTD: How often do you jump your horse. -
-
Darcy worked superbly today, lots of suppleness work and transitions and she ended up working superbly In the canter and really settled down. Lots of shoulder in, worked on medium trot  and canter work along the long side, just need her to be a bit more balanced but on the whole- very pleased and think I've almost got the old Darcy back 🎉

Super Farrier sorted her shoe out today and she's had some fun in the field! So much love for her- super mare... if you're still reading... go follow @benperryeventing 💪🏼

QOTD: Use 3 words to describe your horses personality! -
-
I had a dressage clinic today, second one with Catherine and she said the improvement is massive! I need to spend a lot of time at the beginning of each schooling session working on suppleness and then it keeps her on side for the rest of the schooling session! -
We did a lot of work in trot, really working on the right bend! Then a couple of short canters which she worked Super in! Her transition was brill on the right rein but we need to work on the left. She gets really hot after her canter and we've found that trotting her on a loose rein really helps her to relax and stretch so I'm going to have a proper schooling session tomorrow and try and have a good few canters, get her to relax in the middle and then try again. -

QOTD: What age did you start riding? -
-
So pleased to announce that on Saturday we were chosen to join the @iceequestrian1 BA team! Can't explain how grateful we are for this opportunity, really recommend their products! So in love with what we have bought so far 😍 -
-
-
I've realised the way forward with Darcy is short but sweet! We had an absolutely fantastic schooling session tonight but it probably only lasted 20 minutes. We had a few really good canters and couldn't be prouder! We were on a bit of a time schedule because the hunt come through the yard so had to get off before they came. -
-
I've got a lesson tomorrow so I'm hoping she will be better behaved, she is a super star just got to keep her on side! I'm hoping I'll get some photos soon, for now you can enjoy a photo from our last 85cm round 🙂

QOTD: Pineapple on Pizza? -
-
Darcy tried on her @iceequestrian.1 bridle today,  it's absolutely beautiful😍😍
Took some photos then had a tack change and did the clear round, she was an absolute pig😂 -
-
She was so keen and I had absolutely no breaks, that's what a week of being in does to her and her brain just exploded! Ended doing some trot work on a loose rein while others warmed up. Hoping she's gonna behave this week, got a lesson on Tuesday and Thursday and also got my follow up back appointment too. -
-
Hopefully won't die on our next ride! -

QOTD: Have you ever had your own back done? -
-
Felt a bit better today so spam Darcy round on the lunge and had a little walk and trot around for 5 minutes after. She was good and really looked after me, despite me feeling awfully weak. -
-
If you haven't you really need to check out my story because Darcys new @iceequestrian.1 products came today! Be prepared for lots of photos over the weekend on both here and @ddw_extras ! Highly recommend the products from Ice, they are made to such a high quality and can't fault them in anyway. Every step of the buying was quick and easy from enquiring all the way to receiving the products. Can't recommend them enough 😍
-
-
I had my back looked at today and things make a lot of sense... My right leg was two inches longer than my left because my pelvis was so far out. My right shoulder blade and the left part of my neck is also out but we didn't have time for those today so back next week 💪🏼 it makes sense as to why Darcy is struggling so much and as to why she keeps getting knocked out of place- so interesting and if you ever get re-occurring issues with your horses I really recommend getting yourself looked at! -
