April 2015

A dream come true

After Molly's virus infection got spotted, she was put on a strong 10 day treatment right away. I handwalked her 4 times a day and basically lived at the yard which gave me a unique way of bonding with her. Luckily she recovered quickly, and after the treatment was finished, she was back a 100% and I could finally start riding her 7th of April 2015!

Despite the rough start, riding Molly is undescribable- her flatwork is amazing and her jumping's even better. I feel like we fit together perfectly, and oh what a great feeling that is. We clicked instantly, and after just riding her a few times we've had some amazing rides, both in dressage, jumping and out hacking.

Video still from a flatwork session 10.04.2015- which can be seen in the video below

This week, we got to take part in both top athletics lessons. That inlcuded a flatwork lesson Tuesday 14th and Thursday 16th. This were my first and second time jumping Molly, and with good help from my trainer we got it working well quickly. None of the exercises seems to be too hard for her- as a horse with much potential and scope the only issues we've encountered is a few communication errors.

So generally I'm on a high right now- I am so grateful for being blessed enough to have a horse like Molly, and of course to have been so lucky with buying a horse unseen. It looks like I've finally found "the one" as I've never felt so accomplished and suitable for any other horse I've had before.

In my newest video I've mainly included clips from the jumping lessons, but also some unseen ones from the flatwork sessions I've "caught on tape".

The first chapter; in photos

01.04.2015 dad came up and took some photos of me and Molly- just on the ground as she's still on medication, but these are the first "official" photos of us together.

I'm in love already- and looking forward to many (hopefully) enjoyable years with this princess.
