We had another good run last weekend, this time at Richmond Horse Trials, our local event. The weather was for once on side and the going was actually rather firm, it is normally really soft there this time of year!

So I have really exciting news Albi and I had a great Keysoe Premier League. We went along determined to do our best, but still very much learning together so in all honesty to have the honour of winning the Pony FEI Class was so unexpected it was amazing!
We have had a busy week out and about eventing, along with training and teaching.
It's been crazy here for the past few weeks, with fitting in revision around Gari! However, we had a good time at the Scottish Winter Regionals and I mum and dad surprised me with an early birthday present!
We've had a really positive couple of weeks. I'm really pleased to report that Leo has now started walking out, however in the meantime 8-year-old Albi (also known as Dumbledore D) has come to stay and train with me so that I can help him continue his Pony FEI education.
So the first weekend back eventing didn't quite go as I had planned! Stan acted like a total pro and not at all like a first time out 5-year-old, however I had a totally unforgivable moment of madness with Candy in the Open Novice.
It's my last year at Oxford Brookes University and I have been trying to finish the dreaded Dissertation! I have finished my first draft and now editing it. I have two weeks holiday over Easter then go back for two weeks then I am done…hooray!!!
