Detonator finally had his first trip out for over year which was for training with Becky Moddy over at York.
I can’t tell you how much I have missed being out on him and he went really well, it’s nice just to go back to basics sometimes, it can all get focused on the difficult moves and actually if you get the basics really good it’s amazing how much easier the rest falls into place.
The proof was in actually getting out and competing him, I had hoped to get to Keysoe Premier League but finances stopped this and in a way it was just nice to head somewhere more local for our first outing.
He felt brilliant although I was a bit nervous riding the PSG and Inter 1 movements having had such a long break but he was so well behaved, I think he is finally growing up! I was so pleased when we got our scores both over 67% which we were struggling to get anywhere near before our injuries!
We are hopefully aiming at Somerford Premier League in May.
Sandonista has very nearly got all his points for medium regionals and not far off the advanced medium as well, he has now won every test he has done this year and again feels good and is strengthening up. He has been on the new Horslyx Pro Digest and looks amazing on it, his summer coat is coming through really well and he is starting to muscle out again and look stronger.
Tango again is only a few points off regional qualification at novice level, he had a win last time out at Snainton after a rather unusually spooky first test, I thing he was feeling the spring grass!
