Another dressage event for Chris and Bonnie (last one HERE).
Alex chatting to Chris & Bonny before the event
During warm up, Bonnie had already decided she wasn’t going to play.
The end results sheet said exactly what Chris thought :
“Well done! A lovely little horse. Just needs to show more freedom of step and bend.“
Yeah, Bonnie was in a playful, stubborn mood, so I’m not surprised she appeared reigned in!
Excuse the music, but the wind noise was terrible. Mute at will!
I took Alex for a drive up to see Chris at work. Lots of top class horses around. The one in the picture is called Sentana and he is lovely! Apparently around £50k and his father (Sandro Hit) is one of the top dressage horse in the World at the moment…. by ‘eck!
Alex had a great time feeding carrots to all the horses at the yard – he even had a go with a hoof pick and did some grooming.
I had great time too. Chris may be the one who is heavily into the horses, but I love them too. I’d love to own a Percheron cross at some point – they simply look fantastic – but it is a dream right now.
I’m just glad Chris has this job. It kept a little money coming in during the past three months when I pretty much had no salary due to my bad back. More importantly for me though, is that Chris is working with horses – her passion – and that makes her very happy…. and in turn it makes me very happy.

A typical end to an energetic day...
