Some of the best bits from our morning out cross country schooling at Killossery Lodge today – such a great range of fences with lots of options for everyone, from young horses to more experienced combinations.

Flash is such a keen little bean – I love how much she loves her cross country! As you can see I had to ask her to โ€œwhoaโ€ a few times, particularly on the approach to a drop, as I learned the hard way not to bomb into one after my little swim at The Field earlier this year ๐Ÿ˜‚
I might have to review bitting options for XC – sheโ€™s currently in a snaffle but itโ€™s not giving me the brakes I need, and taking too much of a check results in her fussing in the contact and she loses her focus on whatโ€™s in front of her.
Having watched all the footage back now, Iโ€™m actually super pleased with how our first day out in almost six months went – Flash was super, and itโ€™s great to have the videos to learn from for the future.
And for those of you of drinking age, I have a new drinking game for you – take a shot for every time I say โ€œgood girlโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚
