Looks a wonderful place! He is a beautiful boy, such an honest face.Last weekend was our annual riding camp. It was tricky this year as my lorry is *still* broken. I borrowed a lorry and dropped Harvey off on Thursday night.
Friday was flatwork and polework, Saturday was gridwork and XC technique, and Sunday was XC and showjumping. I was in the 70cm class for xc (although we jumped higher) and 90cm for SJ
Last year XC was a disaster with Harvey just napping and running. This year he was much better and we jumped loads of fences. Sadly he lost a shoe in the XC but I decided to SJ anyway as it was on a surface. I don't think he was actually quite right which culminated in me sitting on the last fence
He also got weighed and he is now 666kg with a condition score of 2.75
Would you like to see some pics??

Aww - I miss Ramsey following me round like that! Hogan just checks for food, then tells me to bog off if I don't have any.A strange week for me. The owner of my ex share horse is unexpectedly in hospital so a group of us have been looking after her 3 horses. I had booked Monday off after my riding camp so I did Monday, and then both weekend days this week. Its basically just poo picking, haying and feeding.
Saturday was roasting so I rode at 10 just for a gentle walk around with YO. Sunday was cooler so Harvey and I had a longer hack on our own.
Nice to have some help when poo picking (Riley who is about 2 now)
Happiness is.... (Bug my ex share on the left)
Don't leave - I want to play

Looks cooler where you are? Today is the first day where it's been below 22 at any point.Sorry - a late report from me. On Saturday I was unexpectedly in charge again so was there early to feed and turn out. I managed to ride before the worst heat of the day. After several months and several thousand pounds my lorry is back so Sunday was a chance for a SJ clinic. It was supposed to be 90cm but there was only one other rider who jumped 110cm so some of the fences were 100cm. Harvey went well for me but I am finding 100cm to be quite a step up.
I've had this week off so on Tuesday I did some polework in the school and on Wednesday we had a trip to the Wyre Forest
Oops not very central. First part of a double at 100cm
Harvey was a bit suspicious of the water tray
Just Harvey and I
