Sketchedy goodness.

Had this done quite some time ago, but hey. I'm slow on things.



The days went on in Fallen Angel stables. The autumn weather was making it almost impossible to take the horses on walks, everything was wet and muddy. The inside arena was crowded most of the days, but no one complained. Olympics indeed brought a good idea to the staff, making them build the arena this huge. Everyone was training there.

Including Ramiel and Lionel. The two began their training a day after Joey’s finding of the stallion’s show jumping potential and since then, Fox was doing better and better. It’s not like he needed to be asked over the jumps, no, quite the opposite. He needed to learn how to slow down and not over-do it. He was flying over the obstacles. Lionel had a problem with him the first few days, the stallion just ignored any kind of help from the saddle and exploded towards any jump he was put in front of.

But he was getting better. And boy, was it a pleasure to watch that horse over the jumps. Fox alone was a gorgeous creature, but to Joey’s surprise, it wasn’t dressage that fitted him the most. Of course he was going to train him that too, but the strength Ramiel was showing when he pushed himself up and the elegance in his moves when he left the ground left a lot of people staring speechless.

Joey decided that it was about time Ramiel entered his first proper competition. Autumn didn’t offer much choice and after the Olympics it was a dead-silence around the stables. At most, that is. USV’s Grand opening event seemed like a good chance to show the stallion though, and so it happened. Joey registered Lionel and Fox into the show jumping and himself in dressage with Ilu. The mare was alright again, no sign of pain or discomfort from the injured leg and he, quite frankly, couldn’t wait to show her again after the Olympics disaster that was him having to draw back.

Both Fox and Ilu were in a perfect shape. It was time to rock again.
