Lucy Pincus , the other young rider doing brilliantly this month has been out winning with Sheepcote Don Calisto by Don Schufro. The pair won both the qualifiers at Elementary and Medium at Hartpury giving them a great beginning to 2014 and a head start in summer qualification. 17 year old Lucy is currently studying at college doing a business diploma but is still very focused on her plans with Don Calisto who is rising 8 and working towards PSG. Lucy explains that her plans are to do the Regional Championships at Medium and Advanced medium and is hoping to qualify for the nationals. Lucy also revealed she would like to give Juniors a go at Premier Leagues. So we can look forwards to both Erin and Lucy out contesting juniors this year! In my world.. I have had a quiet month getting ready for a warm up competition at Addington in preparation for the Regional Championships. I am quite nervous as it will be Tango’s first regional’s and I am not sure how he will cope with the busy atmosphere. Tango can get strong and take over when he is stressed so I am just keeping my fingers crossed that I can keep him calm and focussed! We have had some really good training sessions this month. Tango is getting stronger and we did our first set of 4 tempi changes which I was over the moon with. It is so nice to feel the improvement and sometimes I have to remind myself how far we have come. I was 14 when we first bought Tango as a strapping 4 year old and we have been through a lot together. I can’t wait for the day we can go out at the higher levels and show that all the training has paid off.
