What a few days - we had a fantastic result with Isa at the weekend, however both Lenny and Iggy are out of the game currently.
As always I had fabulous couple of days training from 'the master' Carl Hester with the babies and Lenny once again made us all proud at Somerford Premier.
We had a great show at Addington! Isa was fabulous and so brave, she came 4th out 28 in the top young horses class! We are so proud of her!
So proud of our Head Groom, Fern Carroll, who has completed her apprenticeship with us. In her first outing on her young horse, the 5-year-old Hamilton they won and came 3rd in both of their prelims. Larry is also improving everyday and has now qualified for the Summer Championships!
Yesterday was Larry's first show! I must say it is so easy to forget 'young horses' first outings but he made us all very proud!
Well getting to the Regionals has been a challenge this year! Lenny missed Bishop Burton and Storm Doris nearly put a stop to our travels to Morris Equestrian Centre. We wouldn't be beaten though!
Leg yielding has may uses. In basic terms it helps to make the horse more supple, get the horse in front of the rider’s leg and connect the horse from inside leg to outside rein note. Hannah Esberger explains...
What a lovely week we are having! Molly and Joey competed in two prelims on Saturday and won the Juniors with a lovely accurate test with 68% and came second overall!
I was so thrilled with Lenny at the Nationals. He tried his heart out for me and that's all you can ask of your horse!
