This is our song, and this one's for you ♥ [03:07]
So I went riding yesterday and came out with some ok clips. Yes, before you ask I'm stil riding Amazonic. I'm not gonna let one little fall knock my confidence, I've been riding for too long to let that happen. Amo was being a total star until we came to the last fence of our jumping course. Once again, she refused. I wasn't happy as I'd thought she'd have got over it by now. The jump was around 2ft maybe? Yet she still refused. My instructor lowered it (not for my benefit, but for the horse's - which is the most important thing) and she went over it smoothly. I'm sure she has a slight fear about big fences but I'm not exactly sure why. But, oh well! Nevermind, it was still a great lesson. I actually got told to get into a "jockey position" which is basically just a jumping position without the jump, hehe. First in trot, then in canter. Amo was such a happy pony after her extended canter. Being an ex-race horse who can blame her? I bet she misses her racing days, eh? We've also had a great and exciting surprise come to us on the 21st of April. Check out the "Little John Paddock's latest edition" video to find out! :D

24.08.11 Jumping lesson [03:51]
Brat attack. He was very naughty! Almost ran over my instructor, cantered sideways into someone's pony and decided he couldn't canter on the correct leg anymore. But I suppose it's all learning, being in an enclosed space with lots of other horses has always blown his brains He's still very green with jumping, I know he shouldn't be after so long, but without regular lessons or even someone who knows what there talking about to help us and only 1 jump at home progress is very slow. We're getting there though, the last few weeks has definately been a big learning curve for both of us. A few pictures of a flatwork session in the week to show he does has his good moments :P he now loads absolutely perfectly :) :) and we're enjoying the stubble fields a lot at the moment! Sponsored ride and Hunter trial coming up :) as well as weekly jumping lessons

'Elysium'; ODE PHPCC '11 [03:03]
Nil De Mee & Georgina Preston One Day Event on the last day of Polden Hills Pony Club Camp 2011 Quite a dramatic video ha! Had such a good time at camp. Dennis was pretty good, had some ups and downs (literally, slippy XC! That's why my instructor for the week is riding in the first photograph) but over all a nice week, think he's tweaked something in his back as he kept going disunited which is unlike him so having that looked at. Got 44 Dressage, which was worse than last year when it was definitely alot better than last year so a bit gutted the judge wasn't as generous. Then had a clear XC and it was so controlled and such a brilliant feeling so over the moon about that and then the showjumping was topscore and was a bit unlucky, did the first jump nicely as in the video, then he was disunited going around to a big green spread so we knocked that and then couldn't go around and jump the planks which we had planned so I circled around the other way and did a brush fence, he didn't really notice the pole so just knocked it, then we went and did the second half of the double because I didn't know it was a double and then went and did the planks, so although we did pretty awfully, I got lots of comments on how controlled he was and how he looked like a different horse so I was very pleased with that. Sorry for the essay, enjoy! Thankyou for reading if you have...! xx

"Ima show you how [ great ] I am!" [01:01]
READ PLEASE. Okay so this quote means so much to me at the moment. For a long time I have listened to what people have said about my riding and I have been upset by a lot of it, even leading me to change yards. Eventually I realised that I should stop caring what they say, I was making a lot of mistakes and falling off, not really any more than anyone else but it felt like that, my riding confidence and outlook just seemed so dull... I loved horses and riding but it was losing the thrill it had used to give me. I let those people get to me. I moved to a new yard (Woodside Equestrian) because an instructor who I used to get taught by had taken it over. My riding has really improved since I started there and also I came to care less and less about what people think. However I still beat myself up so much if I make mistakes or fall off for stupid reasons. A lot of these clips were taken from my lesson two days ago (22/6/11) and I seriously have not ridden so badly in a long time. I was really ill and I still rode against my dear mothers advice and I really regret it. I was all over the place, eventually falling off at a small spread during the show. I got numerous refusals which were my fault. I was getting tired really easily and Toby is a big, strong horse but I just couldnt get with him or control him at all... I haven't felt this bad in a long time, I feel as if I made a massive fool of myself in front of everyone. It was really just a bad day... :/ But then I found ...
