NZ Horse & Pony - - Training Masterclass -

Dairy Flat’s Chloe Van den Boorn has been com­pet­ing her lovely mare Mir­ror Bella Molly in Am­a­teur se­ries classes for the rst time this sea­son. Chloe (24) has owned the 10-yearold thor­ough­bred-clydie-welsh cross for two years and has been suc­cess­ful with her show jump­ing to 1.20m. Chloe has two other horses and works full-time for Petnsur, who is also her spon­sor. Chloe says her main train­ing is­sues with Molly are the mare’s ten­dency to drift left, and main­tain­ing a rhythm. “I need to trust her stride a bit more. I end up get­ting a bit back­ward to the jump, in­stead of keep­ing the same pace all the way around.”
