August 25, 2016 

In the US we use light weight hula hoops for the “Tyre” race.  Up in Wales, and many other places, they use an actual tire.  Here is Rob helping the team learn the tyre technique.

England and Wales 2016 – wrap up 1

August 22, 2016

We managed to get so busy on our trip that we didn’t get to blog post much. 

Here is a wrap up of the trip by team rider Mackenzie. 

The mgaa international trip was definitely the highlight of my summer and the greatest experience of my life. In the 2 weeks that we were in england/wales i have learned so much and i know that i grew as a rider. Competing at world individuals was such an amazing opportunity for me, i am so thankful for krista and melanie for helping me ride such a difficult pony with all the amazing riders from around the world. This trip has given me so many memories i will never forget and i know that if i was ever asked to do it again i 100% would.

COTN session 1 

August 13, 2016 

We are at the Cock of the North competition for the weekend!!!

We met our ponies last night.  One, Goose, did not arrive until after dark so it was a quick walk trot bareback ride.  Two were here when we arrived.  Lacey and Jaz are quick little pocket rockets.  And the lovely Ellie is a large paint pony.  The 5th pony is Flicker is a tiny little made games pony.  

The first session was a little rough, but the team got a feel of their ponies, each other and the footing.  There were a few dropped hand offs and mistakes but nothing horrible.  We are excitedly looking forward to session 2 this after noon.
