Al­li­son fin­ishes the ses­sion feel­ing good. “I’ve done things I wouldn’t have tried be­fore,” she smiles. “Rid­ing with a longer rein and my hands open made all the dif­fer­ence. I felt more in tune with Brooks and I was able to sit up. “He’d not seen a ditch be­fore, yet break­ing it down by walk­ing first meant it wasn’t an is­sue. We’re both feel­ing hugely con­fi­dent.” Lucinda is pleased with their progress. “Horses feed off the rider’s con­fi­dence, so you’ve got to be con­fi­dent oth­er­wise it’s un­fair on the horse — he’ll feel you’re let­ting him down,” she says. “Brooks is such a nice lit­tle horse and he’s up for it. Now go and have some fun.”
