Australian Brumby Challenge ©
It has been another slow week in the yards with VBA Jill.
I have been working on moving her feet a little and coming forward, also just rubbing her down with a flag and stick. I can confidently rub Jill all over her neck withers and face with a flag, but as for using my hands she has not yet trusted me.
Sometimes I stand in the yard and wonder what the hell have i got myself into ?
With just 3.5 months left until equitana and i still haven’t touched this horse yet with my bare hands.
With 3 major Sponsors Barastoc Horse, Bogong Horseback Adventures and Cris floats i feel added pressure to perform.
Not that any on the three have put any pressure on me whatsoever. I just feel like i have a commitment to do well by them, as all three have committed to me and supplied the very best support i can get.
Yesterday was a day off for VBA Jill as i had some medical appointments in Albury and i had to pick up my brand spanking new Crisfloat.
What a rippa! i am sure the brumbies will love traveling in this aerodynamic beauty back to Melbourne in november and perhaps a few little pre Equitana shows around rural Victoria in the lead up to get a little practice.
And it will be the envy of all horse float owners on the way.
If you are interested in it have a look at my instagram page
@bogonghorse or the hashtag Crisfloat.
All the best and thanks for reading
