Since competing at Kyneton in August, Ebony and Alby have been participating in a number of training sessions and clinics in preparation for Alby’s first EV80 competition in late September.
Recently they attended a clinic at Maldon with Alan Mitchell which saw Alby having a go at a couple of 90cm fences. This was followed by a cross country clinic with Stacey Briggs at Dunolly where again Alby was in Ebony’s opinion – awesome, fit and feeling fantastic! Alby jumps everything that Ebony asks him to, and she is having a lot of fun riding him.
With the Friends of Ballarat Hunter Trials coming up on the 23/24th September, Alby will have his first attempt at his new height on their home course, followed by the EV80 Horse Trials at Werribee a week later.
Ebony also reports that she has got her beloved Yoko back in work after her 6 months spell from injury.
With some gentle encouragement and work, Ebony hopes to have Yoko back competing in the not too distant future – we wish you success Ebony.
