Pure Focus by OakBrookeStables

After watching Sassy’s routine, Olly and Judith walked over to the warm up ring to say hello to everyone and watch them cooling down. Olly was soaked through, despite having his waterproofs on, and was frozen so couldn’t wait to get back inside.

They reached the arena, hopping over the fence and wading through the arena which now more resembled a river to where Elly and Skye were chatting, still mounted, backs to the rain.

“Hey,” Olly called to the pair, who turned their heads simultaneously to see a very wet and bedraggled Olly and… was that Judith?

“Oh my God! Hi!!” Judith yelled as she ran into view, arms open ready to hug the wet horses, “I’m so excited to see you guys”. She wrapped her arms around Reno beaming a smile up at Skye and Elly just like an excited child.

“I didn’t expect to see you here” Skye said as she jumped off Reno.

"We bumped into Turta but we weren't sure who had come with her" Elly added.

"Yeah, I was stuck with her this time" Judith giggled, still patting Reno's neck. The rain continued to fall so they all made their way to the stable block as Judith talked non-stop.

“..So yeah, that’s how I stumbled upon a family of pixies in my bedroom when I was 8..” She told proudly, once they arrived to where Reno and Hazel were stalled Judith finally shut up. Allowing Skye, Elly and Olly to have some time to actually get stuff done without the risk of a headache.

Elly undid her stirrups as Olly brought her chair around before proceeding to lift Elly off and down into her chair, where Elly sorted herself out. In the meanwhile Skye took Reno into the stable, hastily untacking him and throwing a cooler over his back to try and dry him off a bit.

“I’m off to get changed!” Skye announced, jogging off, unable to wait any longer to get out of her soaking show clothes and into her regular barn gear.

Olly had also untacked Hazel, who had already resumed her nap. How a horse could be that sleepy he didn’t know, all she seemed to do was sleep.

The whole team assembled back at the lorry to get some dry clothes on themselves.

“Well done, by the way guys,” Olly said cheerfully, lying out all the wet clothes to the best of his abilities in the tight space. “Your test were really nice, very clean. Just a few corners to work on for next time!”

“Thanks,” the girls replied, putting on their jackets to go back down and see the horses again. “Hopefully the rest of the classes will go that well!” Skye chuckled.

The team made their way back down to the stables, quite quickly, trying to not to soak this lot of clothing.

Olly leaned over the stable door to check on Hazel who surprise surprise, was still napping, and then Reno who was now contented munching on his hay.

“Want to go down and see Judith and Turta again?” Elly suggested, wanting to continue her chat with Turta about the lack of grass this year, and other, very interesting topics.

Turta was just finishing up with Sass when Judith perked up from the hay bale she was leaning on as Elly, Skye and Olly rounded the corner. Sass prodded them with his nose, inspecting them for treats when they got closer to the door.

“Hey Olly,” Turta waved from behind Sass as she wiped the last of the sand of his leg. They exchanged the usual questions such as ‘how are you?’ and ‘what have you been up to?’ before Judith continued her dramatic tales of the times she found pixies and the day a pigeon stole her shoe. Skye was also somehow roped into the conversation, her and Olly must feel like they are with a 6 year old. Luckily Judith’s stories, although mostly a figment of her imagination, were always interesting and unexpected; meaning that they would be far from bored. Thankfully for Elly, she and Turta continued their talk about the joys of barn management and the best ways to find quality affordable hay. Although it’s not as colourful as what Judith animately talked about, it was still interesting for them both.

Just as Judith was finishing up one of her magical tales, Skye had a lightbulb moment.

“We should totally have a horseyback race!” she squealed, grabbing Olly and pulling him over. Unsuspecting, Olly quickly snapped out of the daze he was in, plummeting back into this world greeted by a crazily hyper Skye and Judith. Judith jumped to where Turta is, pulling her over to the decided starting line. Judith crouched down and pulled Turta onto her back.

"This should be interesting" Turta muttered as Judith aligned herself with Skye and Olly.

"Oh you guys can't race like that!" Elly added as she reached for the riding hats, "You've got to be safe". All giggling, Skye and Turta put the hats on.

"One...two..three..GOOO!" Elly shouted, waving a makeshift flag about.

Both Skye and Turta were bumping all over the place as Olly and Judith trotted down the walkway. People stared at them as they stumbled past, either laughing or too confused to give a reaction. They didn’t care, the end was in sight and the kicked on into a run. Crossing over the finish they all cheered, Olly and Judith then dropped Skye and Turta onto the floor exhausted.

“Aaaand the winner is….Akmuo Stables!” Elly declared, clapping and then wheeling herself over to the ‘drop-zone’. “We’re going to have to get training to beat you next time!” she laughed.

Elly helped the riders up, back onto their feet, still giggling.

“Rematch?” Skye suggested enthusiastically, picking up a lunge line.

Judith and Turta looked at each other, nodding in agreement, why not? It couldn’t hurt.

This time Skye set up a makeshift finishing line with the lunge line, attached to the stable bars and Elly grabbed a stopwatch from her rucksack on the back of her wheelchair.

“Almost ready?” Elly asked everyone excitedly.

“Just a sec!” Turta called, having just had a brilliant idea. She rummaged amongst Sassy’s stuff until she found what she was looking for. A crop. Judith gave her a disapproving look.

“Really?” she asked, not seeing the necessity.

“Really.” Turta replied bluntly, smacking the crop off of her boot in anticipation.

Turta jumped on the now wary Judith, though her excitement still bubbled about her. As Skye and Turta adjusted themselves on top of their mounts they noticed that their was now a small crowd forming to watch their rematch.

"Right, are we ready now?" Elly questioned.

"Yees!" The four of them cheered harmoniously.

"Okay, one..two..three.. GO!" Elly hollered.

The pairs jogged off the start line as the small crowd cheered for them. Skye seemed determined to win this time, hunched on Olly as if actually racing; Turta sat on Judith swinging the crop around with a huge smile on her face. They were coming up to the last length, Skye kicked Olly for him to run as Turta continuously tapped Judith until reaching the end. The crowd, seemingly larger than before, cheered loudly and clapped as they laughed at what they just watched.

"Woo! Now where's the winners circle?" Skye joked, jumping off of Olly. Both Olly and Judith hunched over once their riders had dismounted, tired they shuffled back up to Elly. Turta high-fived Skye.

"Should definately take up racing, we have pure talent," Turta laughed as they followed behind their worn out mounts.

After Elly and Olly had gone out to get warmed up, Skye finished tacking up Reno. Skye carefully put the stable’s hunter green polo wraps around his legs and some over reach boots, just for the warm up, and then proceeded to tie a green ribbon in his tail to warn people that he was a stallion.

Not long after the others had left, Skye herself was ready to go out. Instead of waiting to use the mounting block she hopped on in the stable block, walking away checking her girth and leaning forward to double check all her keepers were in.

The main warm up arena was pretty full, as the riders were already starting to go into the ring, but that was okay because she was second to last so she’d get some quality warm up when the bulk of competitors had left.

For the first fifteen minutes, Skye let the stallion waddle around the arena in walk and trot like a western pleasure horse with his head almost touching the floor. She could tell she was getting strange looks from the other competitors who were giving their piaffes and pirouettes a final run, but Skye didn’t want to use up any more of Reno’s focus than she had to as he couldn’t focus for more than half an hour at this level of competition.

Focus was something they were working on the Reno. As a top stallion, you’d think he’d have bundles of it but the team had worked out some special training programmes for him so he was ridden in short burst which slowly increased time wise. It’s not that he couldn’t so the work when he wasn’t focusing, it just wouldn’t be good or accurate enough and he often only half listened to any cues, so it was okay at the bottom levels of competition where there were only basic collections and extensions but now he really had to take note of everything. When he was focusing you could tell as his extensions were so much bigger and powerful and his collections were small but still relaxed and supple, and he could perform any transition you asked of him.

Skye slowly picked up her reins, asking Reno for some proper head carriage before starting to work him in properly. To keep him interested in the warm up they wouldn’t perform the routine, but all the movements in a different order, maybe with some extras in there too.

“And woah,” Skye soothed reassuringly, asking the stallion to come back down to a walk. Skye had noticed that it was almost Elly’s turn, so in the chaos of the warm up arena, tried to get over to where she was, trying to balance different levels of collection in the trot.

“Good luck out there!” Skye called, walking alongside her.

Elly, a little startled, brought Hazel to a standstill and looked round to see Skye. “Thanks!” She called back, giving a nod and continuing on with her warmup.

“We have another busy day ahead of us!” Elly called, rolling over to Olly and Skye, who were already in the middle of grooming Hazel, one side each. The pair looked up, both barely awake, acknowledging her presence but went back to grooming, knowing they still had Reno and Snowman to groom and plait yet.

“Skye!” Elly called in a shrill tone to get her attention, ridiculously awake for 5am.

“Hmm,” she groaned, dropping her brush into the grooming bag before going and leaning over Elly’s shoulder so she could show her today’s plans.

Elly produced stacks of notes from her book, including, back up music files, copies of the test, notes from training and their start numbers.

“Right, here you go Skye, here’s the numbers I’ve made you up. Here’s the original for your bridle, one for your head collar and some extras in case you get one wet or something,” Elly explained, her thought trail wondering and her words slowing as she began to run through the day’s events in her head and how she was going juggle everything.

“Thanks,” Skye answered, flicking through the set of numbers before immediately going to attach them to the correct tack.

As Skye walked away, Elly became even more engrossed in her notebook, looking at her routine and picking her own numbers out of the notebook. Elly then wheeled herself away, following Skye to get Hazel’s tack, leaving Olly to groom the horses.

It wasn’t long before Skye was back, and then Elly went up to the lorry to get changed into her show clothes. Skye had to start tacking up an antsy Reno, who was ready and raring to get out. Olly on the other hand had already tacked up Hazel, who was quite content napping, but was very rudely awoken when Olly tightened the girth.

Olly was glad they were having a busy day as it meant he wasn’t sitting around for ages doing nothing. His mental plan was to go and watch the morning’s dressage and then go off and get snowman ready for the beginning of the three day event, but those plans would probably change.

Elly swiftly returned and was ready and raring to get going. Olly proceeded to take Hazel to their adapted mounting block, which they had added a ramp to and helped Elly on board, which was a very well-practiced routine that now only took a matter of seconds.

“Good luck out there,” Olly said very positively, scratching Hazel’s rump as Elly collected her reins before proceeding to walk on to the warm up arena.

“Thanks!” Elly called back.

 

Olly went back to the stable block to grab his jacket before going out to watch as there was rain forecast for today. No sooner than he’d grabbed his jacket, the heaven’s proceeded to open.

“Great, just frickin great,” Olly grumbled, walking out to grab a seat on the bleachers, or not if they were already soaked.
