    The 2016 Season Starts Here!

    Well, there it is, the end of my 2015 season. We’ve proven that eventing with a baby is just about possible and definitely still something we want to do, just about got ourselves back up to novice level, figured out the show jumping, and completed our first medium dressage test

    Where has the time gone?

    Last week I was schooling in the field and started to feel a bit frustrated with how this year was panning out. Back in February/March I had visions of spending the summer really focused on my eventing, however I was trotting round feeling like I'd somehow let the opportunity pass me by.

    Minor Setbacks

    The last few weeks have been quite frustrating as we’ve had a few minor setbacks that have meant our fitness and training work have gone quite off plan, but hopefully we’re back on track now.

    Back to Eventing At Last!

    There is something to be said for starting the eventing season in mid July - the weather is (mostly) glorious and Corey is looking fabulous, if a little bit too 'well'. I've managed to work off some of his spring fullness, thanks to upping the fitness regime and restricting the grass, and after nearly 11 months away from eventing I was seriously chomping at the bit.

    Greetings from Motherhood

    We are back, and just as much on a mission as before! Greetings from motherhood, a surreal new world...I like to think that people have enjoyed reading my blog over the last year because I am like the majority of eventers; working outside of the equine industry to fund a passion, along with juggling life.

    Almost Here!

    It is a strange feeling, knowing that the season is about to start and knowing you're not going to be part of it, despite having a healthy event horse and being injury free yourself. Everyone else is gearing up ready, social media is full of the news that it's nearly here, and I am stuck on the sofa (occasionally literally) waiting for our own special delivery!

    Seasons Greetings

    In my last blog I reflected on my last jump of the year and the big change that awaits us in 2015 with the arrival of our first child. So I thought now a good time to reflect on the whole of 2014, my last dressage competition, and indeed quite possibly my last ride.

    Last Jump of the Year

    Busy busy busy! Despite the season being over and the nights drawing in – which should mean things are quietening down, I feel like I’ve been busier than ever!

    Winding Down to Year End

    We've had a quiet few weeks now that Lincoln has been and gone and our eventing season is over, but Corey hasn't quite finished for the year yet. We're going to take advantage of his fitness to work on his flatwork a bit more; aiming to set us up for a great spring in 2015, without the pressure of imminent important competitions.
