Things are hotting up by Tanya Buckingham-Lloyd
Over the last few months there has been lots of eventing, a yard move and scorching weather!
The horses have so far (touch wood) all been on very good form this season! Candy (Obos Impressive) has had two runs since winning the international at Great Whitchingham. She had done two lovely double clears at Floors CIC** and Houghton CCI**, and has completed her 3 star qualification. As I write this I’m sat in the lorry at a boiling Barbury where she’s having her last run before going advanced at Aston and then Burgham CIC***…exciting times!
The Burnlea Brothers, Stan and Skip, have both made the step up to novice and coped well posting double clears and Skip having two 4th placings. Their younger brother Snip is also coming on well and hopefully we will get him out eventing at some point this year. Callie is going really well and Edna is almost calm enough to make an appearance in the next month or so (she’s a feisty little mare!)
I moved yards a few weeks ago…it was a little chaotic having horses on two different yards for a while, but the new yard has a great set up and is much closer to our house! The first day there we had a yard visit from some of my lovely sponsors, Millbry Hill, Dengie and Claire Hirst photography. We spent the morning reviewing the horses and talking about plans for the year. Claire also managed to get some lovely photos of the day!
It’s always good to catch up with the Dengie team and it helps that my horses love the Dengie products! They all look amazing at the minute and feel fantastic…the feed is obviously helping them go well…I can’t take all the credit!
