Rider’s report from the Talland Training Day

On the 26th January 2015 we were privileged to be able to ride at The Talland School of Equitation, Under the watchful eye of Pammy Hutton FBHS.  The morning. Was split into Two groups both of which were able to ride in two sessions with a variety of horses ranging from youngsters to horses working advanced /Grand Prix.

In my group we were lucky enough to have Webster who was bought as a PSG schoolmaster, I found him an interesting ride , as you had to get him on side, but he was generous with his education and gave me a good feel for the movements required at that level.  I was also lucky to ride the lovely 16.3hh Tommy who had competed small tour and gave a super feel for the changes.  The next horse I had was Ash who originally jumped at 1.40 also competed advanced medium ,
A tall horse, who took a lot to connect but an enjoyable ride nevertheless, lastly I had Amo who works at Inter1 and started one time changes again a great schoolmistress who could offer such  education.

Also in the group horse wise were Apollo generously loaned by yard manager Claire, and Abira  who belongs to Pammy.
It was an interesting day with Top Tips thrown in by Pammy at the end of each ride, her directions being clear and concise.

A most interesting day thank you Pammy and the Talland Team, also to Jude and Jeremy for organising it .
