I have also acquired an ex Open Level Event horse who I started Showjumping in the lower grades....Her name is Anabar Reef and I never imagined myself getting into the jumping scene again! The last time I sat on a show jumper must have been 14 years ago! On Thursday I took her to the Equestrian Centre where I work afternoons to have her teeth done by an Equine Dentist. She will be stabled here from next week or so as I will be having riding lessons myself from a past winner of the South African Showjumping Derby,who is also my next door neighbour,Shirley Scriven(nee Kemp) I am very excited about getting myself geared up towards the higher grades again! She is beautifully schooled and only a pleasure to ride.
Here is the owner of Tzaneen Equestrian Centre,the lovely Ilse on the left,she is 6 months pregnant and can't wait for baby to pop out so she can ride again!! Equine Dentist, Wayne Dale and my groom George,who came with to look after Ana while I worked.
Anabar Reef thinking she is at a show!
...Say, Aaa for uncle Wayne..!
The stables are to die for! So lovely and spacious.
George took Ana to show her around the arena.
I hope he was telling her not to dump the Missus at this jump...
Then the donkey in the background started braying...Ana has never heard a donkey bray...
...and right in front of me, Ana morphed into a giraffe!
The facilities and equipment at this yard is just absolutely fantastic!
Ana having gotten over the donkey and asking George to tell her the order of jumps for the course...
I am sure George said something like" hau, the Missus she has never jumped such big jumps at home!"
