Ok so Valegro needn't worry just yet!!!! Elfie had his first ever party today and had ago inside the white boards. It was the first time he'd ever been in an arena with other horses to work and he was a little shy at first but soon got used to it and was so brave and warmed up beautifully. When we went in for the test, the one thing he did take a disliking to was the judges box, which was a little bit of a problem because when ever we were down that end of the arena we were rather wobbly. But there were some really lovely moments away from the box. 60.8% wasn't a bad score for his first ever test. Plenty of room for improvement and delighted that he coped so well with the party atmosphere.
