Winter shows are tough on everyone. The ponies are clipped and rugged and grappling through the dark, cold and mud we are managing to turn them out and get to a show most weekends. Doylan Cafe Au Lait who is not long broken has now been to three ridden shows with varying results. At Gwent Welsh Show she was excited and bucked and at Midland Welsh after a long time waiting for her classes she decided half way through her second class she'd had enough. She is imporving every time she goes out though and that's all we can ask of a just broken 4 year old pony.
We are looking forward to West Mercia Welsh show this weekend just down the road from us and then Doylan Elegant Gift will take part in Kings Equestrian Christmas dressage. She's going to do a walk trot test to music- the theme music
