I am exhausted but I will do my very best or at least let the photos speak for me.
To be very honest, I never actually thought Egill Þórarinsson would come to Shetland for a training weekend but he did, and it was fantastic, beyond words. Thank you Bjørn for asking him.
All ten riders and their horses did fantastically well under Egill’s tuition. They worked hard and achieved much. Every standard was catered for – both horse and rider. Everyone came out inspired to try harder and to do more with their horse.
The highlight of my weekend was seeing so many beautiful Icelandic horses at Thordale with their happy, willing and enthusiastic riders. I sincerely hope this is the beginning of something regular. It was lovely to see. Everyone helped, inspired and supported each other. We were a real working team with the same goal.
And so to bed. Zzzzz,,,,,,,
(I may have eaten my weight in egg mayo sarnies again, BeAnne is so exhausted (I had to send her indoors to warm up and sleep) while Lambie is not talking to me since he has spent two days in his little field (wifi and radio).
So, best training weekend ever in Shetland and here’s to many more! Thanks you guys!
