Thought i'd do a little update on Una my friesian. Some people may remember that this time last year I just started breaking her. The first time i'd ever broken a horse so it was rather scary :eek: But, everything went perfectly, Una is an angel!
This year i've not done too much with her. She is going to stud in the spring so I just wanted her to get used to the basic commands and be hacking out happily I had no plans to over do things with her as she is still very young. We did try a bit of jumping (pictures below!) only once as i never got round to doing it again, but she loved it and i hope that might be something she will take to as thats what I love to do
I've been riding her maybe once or twice a month for the last 6 months or so, just to keep her brain a bit busy. I will mostly be turning her away for the winter as the evenings are just too dark to ride her after work and im at dog shows most weekends!
Anyway, here she is taken today, just to show what a mess she looks :o
(BTW she has had that rug on 24/7 for an entire week, just look how immaculate it is :D)
And this was last weekend:
Check out the view from on board!!
From November when she started to get fuzzy:
And these are going back to August, from the day I jumped her! The jumping pics are video stills so a bit fuzzy…!! Only tiny jumps as she'd never done anything like it before, but didnt she do well?
