After 4 days of work (i dunno how many hours… too many to count), Ivernale’s entry for the HJC show is finished.
Nelly is a young Selle Francais mare bred by us, but owned by Regina Hearst (ulnargroove) who has been having some difficulties in show jumping recently. Regina asked us if we could work with her for a bit, to see if there truly was something wrong with her or if it was just a bad couple of months. After Megan worked with her for a week, and found nothing particular, we let Marine, one of our riders, take her out in a show. Here they are, approaching fence 9. Nelly’s been going at a good pace the whole course, and despite a couple of bad distances, she left all the poles up.
The mare will thus go back to her owner, and although Marine’s a little sad to see her go, we think that getting Nelly’s first foal next year, might cheer her up! (but shhh it’s a secret)
I’ve never been so thrilled!
