Taktur, my 4 year old Icelandic stallion, is going very well. He is about to have all his shoes taken off and have the next four months out in the field with no work. One more lesson on Wednesday and that is it for him.
He deserves it. He is an incredible stallion.
Daisy came home yesterday too. Taktur was meant to start his holiday today but Bjørn, his trainer, wanted Daisy to have a shot on him first and said she can have another go on Wednesday. She is very happy as she hasn’t ridden Taktur for ages.
He was a dreamboat for her. An absolute star.
So, then we stood Taktur up for his conformation shots.
and the camera panned over to where Haakon was standing with BeAnne. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I give up.
Daisy then rode Klængur while Anna rode Haakon. Bjørn gave them both an excellent lesson. Anna was getting used to Haakon (her second ride on him) and trying to find his elusive and rather flat tölt. She did very well and I think they liked each other, which is always a start.
Daisy has probably ridden Klængur only a few times too. This was her first lesson on him with Bjørn teaching. It all seemed to go very well and everyone had a big cheesey grin by the end of the afternoon.
BeAnne watched and learned carefully. Her turn next!
