My rides on Gran Casso have been very good. I think what the judges are expecting to see is not quite how we like to ride our horses at home. They seem to want to see a big, auction like trot which for a relaxed, laid back horse like mine can be a bit difficult at times! He's acting like a pro though. This horse tries so hard, I am really proud of him and excited about his future as a performance stallion. Yesterday we free jumped and GC did really well. Didn't even look at the indoor arena he'd never been in. Tomorrow is a day off and then we ride at 8am Tuesday and Wednesday so we can ride in the big indoor arena, where the guest rider test will be.
