Times Change

Times Change

Times Change has shown excellent progress this week. She improved significantly in her practice jumpout today. It was only her second time jumping out of the gates this prep and she jumped with the other horses and galloped up 400m very well. She was also much calmer when waiting in the barriers this week. She is furthest from the camera in the video below.

We are aiming to keep her in training for another fortnight to go to the jumpouts on the 6th of November. If she continues to handle the training well, it will be great experience for her to get an 800m jumpout done this prep.

She loves going for a relaxing trot on the bush track. It is a good way to break up her week and give her a rest from trackwork. She is following in the video below.

Times Change is coming along well after her minor setback with a cold. She has resumed pace work and had a practice jumpout of the barrier this morning. She is on the far left in the video below, furthest from the camera. She was the slowest out of the gates but the two other young horses, in the middle two gates, both had a practice jump last week which she missed out on because she was sick. She was very good in the barriers and will jump faster next week when she has another practice.

Times Change arrived at the stables last week. This is her first prep after being broken in and she had already done a 4 week refresher with her breaker. She will do a few weeks with us and then head back to the paddock. The video below is her cantering last week.

She has settled into our stables very well and is going around the track great. She is quiet to ride and handle and is sensible to work with. We have started pace work to give her a little taste before she goes for a break.

The video below is her 3/4 pace this morning, she is the chestnut on the outside on the track.
