Blog 13: Rehab

Posted by Angela Gladding on 22 May 2014

Firstly I passed my UKCC assessment with flying colours and have completed my portfolio which I have to wait a few more weeks to receive back.  Next up is practice judging in a few weeks time as would really like to take my judges exam this year if possible. 

The horses are all well and teaching is very busy - have also started coaching some grid and pole work sessions which I am finding fun, it just adds variety to my clients sessions as most like to have a jump as well.  

Super cob Bloss is enjoying her slightly easier life and looking really good for it. Not long until I will start backing my 3 yr old, Paris (pictured), before turning her away for 4 months over the winter.  I am a strong believer of giving breaks when backing horses - they need time to strengthen and mature both physically and mentally.

Jupiter is coming back into work really well and getting stronger every day.  He has been going to our local hydrospa once a week which has helped no end and he feels great.  Am taking him to his first show at the beginning of June so fingers crossed he will be out competing again regularly soon.  

My other exciting news is that I've booked to go on a horsey beach holiday with my friend to a yard near Lincoln!  We are taking Jupiter and her horse and will be camping in the lorry - should be a fun filled few days!
