YESTERDAY I had the huge privilege to ride at the Spanish Olympic legend Rafael Soto‘s clinic here in England. This year I brought our new baby Bailey, owned by the Bloque Family, 5 years old and by Bretton Woods.
Simplicity is one of the hardest things to create, but ahh Rafael is a master on the topic! Bailey turns 6 next year which means I now need to prep him for more collected work and changes. We used the lateral work, and maaany translations between the shoulder ins, traver and half passes, to engage his hind legs and prepare for the more collected job. Bailey just took it all in a stride and danced his super dancer bum off! Such a pleasure to ride. Much proud of his first outing.

Huge thank you to Caroline Edgeley for this opportunity, to Samantha Bloquet for the trust with Bailey, & to Equestrian Stockholm for dressing us very smart!
