I hope everyone has had a good Christmas. We had a good couple of days, relatively low key as obviously my family are in Australia but we were joined by some of Jenny’s family and the girls that were working over Christmas – Jenny had got some of their favourite drinks in (Malibu!) and so much fun was had by all.
The snow is still with us but we have a good system in place now with enough of the school surface cleared for us to be able to crack on and work the horses – the thaw cannot come soon enough but we are managing.
On a positive note I received an email from the Australian Equestrian Federation on Christmas Eve informing me that both Hipp and Coco have been selected for the high performance squads. Hipp is on the ‘holding’ elite squad until he is signed back on as fit by the team vet and Coco is on the ‘A’ squad for up and coming horses which the selectors are interested in watching develop – so that is all good news.
