WEEK 20


This was Brandy’s biggest week so far, I went to the Bacchus Marsh camp drafting school taking Brandy and my other pony Antari. I got to see if my float training had prepared Brandy for her first two hour trip in a float, yes she travelled perfectly. We arrived just before dark, set up camp, Brandy settled into her yard in the usual Brandy style just taking it all calm and relaxed and  chomping into her hay. Over the next three days I was able to work Brandy in amazing facilities including a huge 2 acre sand arena fantastic cross country course and the drafting arena and yard. I was so happy with Brandy she was so calm, relaxed and responsive, I think for both of us the highlight was jumping the whole grade four cross country course.
