Last weekend I was in Finland and did a clinic for 2 days in Erkylä. I had 8 riders per a day and most of them I didn't know for before. I'm planning to come again in January and then keep coming maybe once a month or once in 2 months.
I stayed at my parents and spent the Sunday which was the vathers day as well with them.
Solina and Soul are doing well. Unfortunately Solina hit her splint bone just before our first show since we moved to England and we had to cancel it. With Soul I did one Prix St. George to get some routine and we've planned another show in December.
The weather is getting more wet and humid and now I now what they mean with the English weather!

Sini Solina's second Gran Prix was last weekend in Braunschweig. Unfortunately it didn't go so well for us. Solina was so scared of the huge banner on the short side that she didn't want to pass at all! So every movement what was going towards it was with tension or she also stopped and refused to go close to it. Such a shame! She went so well in the warm up and later in the test in the canter part we had some good moments too. The serial flying changes worked good this time! But anyway, it was another good experience for her and we will keep practicing! The next show for us will be in Stadl Paura, Austria, on the first weekend of April.

On the second day we had our first Gran Prix. Solina feld good during the hole test and specially the trot half-passes and passage were really good. She also did the canter zikzak very good which we can't train as a hole movement at home because our indoor is not long enough. And we still need to work on our passage-piaffe-passage-transitions but for the first test I'm really happy! I was even happier when I heard our score: 69,2%!!! And it got even better because with that score we also won the class! Unbelievable!!! I didn't expect that kind of a start! Wow!

I had my first show this year in Ankum. Sini Solina did her very first Intermediaire II and got 72,28%!!!! I'm sooooo happy! She got third and Flynn placed just after her, fourth. He got 70,96%. Solina did a nice test with some highlights in the trot and passage tour. I was so suprised how well she handled the show situation after a longer break.
The next day both of the horses started once again. I cannot describe how happy I am right now! Sini Solina won her first short Gran Prix with 70,86%. I couldn't even dream about that kind of a start on a higher level. And later on Flynn got second in young horse Gran Prix with 71,3%.
It was such an amazing weekend and a good start for this coming season!
