Olympic Training Camp in Ocala

The Olympic training camp here in Ocala, Florida has been awesome so far .  Phillip and I flew in on Saturday night and met the horses here at Karen and David O’Connors’  farm.  It gets seriously hot here, so we are working the horses first thing in the mornings.
The first two days we worked on the dressage with both Red and Shadow. We are still fine tuning the test and the movements and both horses have been working well.
This morning we did a cross country school and a gallop. There were lots of accuracy questions set up in the field and we worked on lots of the turning questions. Both horses were impressive in their focus and accuracy.  Below is a video of Shadow’s school:

And here’s a fun feature on Big Red thanks to Amy Dragoo for The Chronicle of the Horse:
