School the Red Hills bogey fence at Bridle Creek Farm

Scalloped brush

A big thanks to my Canuck mate Lynden Gilker who helped out by recreating the brush corner that devastated the field at Red Hills last weekend. Linden showed plenty of good handyman work building a scallop-shaped hedge that a few of the horses had trouble understanding; anyone in Aiken who needs to school this fence, feel free to come over to Bridle Creek farm and have a cross-country school.Personally I feel it was a bit of an awkward-looking jump and the horses need to learn how to read it in schooling, rather than surprising them with it at the show.  Caitlin Silliman successfully schooled Remington over it this morning, mitigating their disappointment somewhat from last weekend.
