February has been the start of proper training. During half term I had 4 consecutive days of lessons and experienced a huge improvement of the canter. Ala has strengthened massively which has definitely contributed to this improvement and was confirmed by a visit from the physio who is very pleased with her muscle condition.
We made a 5 hour trek down to Dunbog Farm to have a play over the cross country fences. Ala was very excited to see the fences and was raring to go.
The next day, after the first night of the year spent in the lorry, we then went to Howe Equestrian Centre to compete in a couple of showjumping classes. Again Ala was very pleased to be out and enjoyed her play round the courses.
The start of the season is nearing now and I can't wait for the end of March which will be my first event at Burgham.
