Limoncello has settled in very well and Theo has been training with her every other day and they have spent some time getting to know each other in preparation ready for competitions. Here is a photo taking a recent jumping session. We settled on a discipline for her in the end and it is Eventing!

Diatendro S & Flora Training So I actually took these about 2 weeks ago but work has been pretty manic and I've only just had chance to add the reins and post!
Here are some photos of Diatendro S in training, in our last post we explained how we are deciding between two riders for him and how they would both ride him to get a feel for him and then we will decide whom is best suited to him. First up we have Flora, Diatendro was a bit feisty to begin with but Flora seemed to manage him well and got quite a good tune out of him! What do you think ?

Diatendro S & Santiago Training
Somethings just aren't meant to be. That pretty much sums up the training session between Diatendro & Santiago. Diatendro was a handful from the start with Santiago, even grooming and tacking up which Flora had no problems with. Once onboard Diatendro was on fire trotting round with his head in the air but also whizzing round all over the place, spooking for no reason and even throwing in a odd buck. Santiago managed to get a little control at one point in trot and tried to use Diatendro's energy and get a nice trot going. However when it came time to have a canter well all things went to pot and somehow Santiago ended up on the floor.
I think its safe to say he won't be riding him again and we feel like Diatendro picked his rider. From now on he will be ridden and trained by Flora as shown in our previous post.
On another note, is there any of my horses you want to see next ? I need to work on getting some updates from my Equus now Calvaletti horses and not sure where to start!

TBS Enihard & Grace Training
We haven't seen much of Enihard & Grace recently, but fear not they are working hard training behind the scenes prepping themselves so they are ready for a Dressage Competition. Here they are working in trot, Enihard has a tendency to rush things so they worked on keeping an even balanced rhythm before working on any canter work. Grace has also been hacking him out, but only walk work at the moment as he always feels quite full of himself when out and Grace doesn't quite trust him not to bugger off and leave her in the dust. She hopes to progress at some point by having little trots when out hacking but knows she has to first get it under control in the arena.

Meet Wayward What You Need
Afternoon all! We have exciting news, a newbie to add to our team! We would love to introduce to you Wayward What You Need, a 3 year old Bay Appaloosa, Spanish Sports Horse Stallion who came from Luke Teth . Doesn't he look lovely - we are besotted with him and love his coloured something we have always wanted to add to our team! Once he arrived he went out to the pasture and well as you can see he looks quite flashy and looks like he will be a feisty one! He has been assigned to Santiago (we do hope they get along well) who will start working with him once he has settled in, we have decided to assign him Show Jumping and Dressage disciplines. What you Need is also going to be Liébana de Borges future breeding partner once they have both competed with us and gained points!

Liébana de Borges training
Here are some photos of Liébana de Borges in training, the first photo was actually taken when we very first received her at Christmas and was the her first time being ridden in our school, though I will admit I took the photo and forgot to post it! The second is from a polework training session last week. We worked over trotting and canter poles, in canter she tends to trip and knock the poles more than what she does in trot so we are working on getting her to pick her feet up and not be so lazy with them as she thinks she can go to sleep a bit when the poles are on the floor as opposed to when they are a jump!
