Zulla Road, the big ex-timber horse I have in training, did his first Combined Test today, at a very low level, just to get him to a new place, and continue his transition from racing to a new life. He was very well-behaved, trotted the showjumping course with control, and had a great time, I think!
Here is some of his commentary...:)
Look! A cute little jump! Whee! I think I cleared that by three feet!
Look, people! Oh! Another jump! Yay! I only over jumped by 2 feet that time! I'm trotting! Fun!
Oo! A pond! Oh, that's outside the ring. Darn! A green jump! I did it! More trotting! Wow, this is fun! Look, an orange jump! Yay! More jumps? Ok, fun! Let's do it! Look at the geese! Oo, another jump! This is easy!
