Here we come!!!

My youngest daughter qualified with her Riding club team for dressage at a British Riding Clubs qualifier on sunday and is now off to the BRC National Championships in Sept at Lincs showground.

Really pleased for her as she has struggled with her horse (Dolly) being rather excitable when it comes to the dressage phase as she is looking forward to the jumping that usually follows. but on sunday she kept it all under wraps until the very last 2 movements and even then only dropped potentially 4 marks.

As her big sister competed at the Nationals a few years ago, Victoria is really chuffed to be going herself.

I am a very proud mum!!!  

Claire

And so you should be too.

It used to frighten me stiff watching Doodle riding her ponies in competition. I've never been a good back seat driver.

It sounds like a lot of quiet perseverence and hard work has paid off
Very well done though, and I hope the Nationals are a brilliant experience for her.
You have every reason to be a very proud Mum.

Congratulations to all involved - you will all have a great time (but Dolly might get rather too  excited    )

We are feeling a bit disheartened at the moment as Dolly is lame, ok on soft ground but definitely unlevel on concrete. Vet coming out tomorrow and keeping fingers crossed it will be a short lay off time, as in days, not weeks!

Really feel sorry for Victoria as things were starting to come together, but then thats the way horses go!

Vet has been and says it looks like she has just tweaked a tendon. There is still some swelling but not as much as before. 3 days box rest and bute and then we can trot her up on friday. Yesterday Dolly was much better and happy to trot, so fingers crossed she will be back on track in a week or so.

As is the way with horses, Dolly has been diagnosed with a ruptured check ligament in her right foreleg meaning up to 3 months box rest and a long period of rehab! Unfortunately, this will mean no riding club champs for Victoria and Dolly this year. Vet confirmed it with a scan yesterday and has given us a long list of rehab instructions to follow.

Understandably Victoria is gutted but is just happy that at the end of the winter, we should have a Dolly that is back on track for next year.
