While I have been away south, Floss has been reacquainting herself with riding. Before, Flossie had only been learning to ride her Icelandic horse, Klængur, during university holidays.
Today Bjørn Roar Larsen, our Level 3 FEIF trainer, gave Flossie and Klængur a superb riding lesson.
These past few weeks while I was away South, Daisy had been left with strict instructions to help and teach Flossie. We could all see a huge difference and improvement in both horse and rider. Lovely to see. Also, we had a visitor, Simone from Switzerland, who gave Floss and Klængur yesterday a brilliant lesson. All instruction is good instruction and very, very helpful.
Flossie is feeling inspired after watching Daisy competing in the British Championships last month.
Flossie has only been riding for two years (I never insisted she learned and, instead, have waited for her to ask for lessons) and I gave her Klængur as her twenty-first birthday present.
Klængur was my horse, that I bought from Iceland, but he works a hundred times better with Floss than he ever does with me.
They understand each other and are very much a happy team.
Meanwhile, for those that are wondering, Lambie has found his “Winning Smile” due to the fact that he has also found out about Kitkats – a chocolate-covered wafer bar confection – thank you very much, Daisy!
It is now downhill all the way!
