Sing to the Tune of Summer Holiday
(the Cliff Richard version, please)
He’s going where the sun shines brightly
He’s going where the grass is green
we’ve all seen it in my photos
now let’s see if we mean…..
Taktur has his summer holiday
doin’ things he always wanted to
So he’s going on his summer holiday,
to make his dreams come true
not animal glue
not animal glue!
(lyrics slightly changed by me!)
Yes, the my Icelandic stallion has earned his summer holiday. He has worked hard for his trainer, Bjørn Roar Larsen, since December and now he can show a half decent slow tölt, he can have a rest.
Daisy had the last ride/lesson on Taktur to give Bjørn the opportunity to watch his gaits, movement and conformation.
When they had finished, he was allowed to walk around and stretch.
They make a lovely couple.
While Daisy groomed him, ready for his conformation photo..
….. Anna had a lesson from Bjørn on Haakon. She has ridden my horse a few times but this was her first time without stirrups.
She did very well and Haakon did the best tölt I have seen for a long time. I hope we have converted her!
Next, time for Taktur´s conformation photo. I am not sure which one I like best but I am impressed and very happy with his development.
Shoes off for the summer.
So that’s it for the Taktur now. He gets the summer off to eat, grow stronger and have fun with his friends. A huge thank you to Bjørn for his commitment to training my stallion. Without him, none of this would’ve been possible. They make a good team.
