We would like to introduce our newest member of the Dengie Sales Team, Kate Deegan who joins us as the Area Sales Manager for Ireland.
My aim for October was to try and qualify both ponies for the Area finals of the Pony Club Dengie Winter League Novice Dressage. The first qualifier was at West Wilts Equestrian Centre and it was a very wet and cold day.
I had a great training session at Carl Hester's this week! He loved my new boy AJ. Carl even said he would have bought him!
I can’t quite believe how quickly the weeks are blurring and flying by - so much to tell you all and to look forward to.
My final event of the year on Googie started fantastically with a super dressage test leaving us in 20th out of 90 in the CIC2* at Bicton.
If anyone would have told me in July that Arlo would be a different horse in October, I may not have believed you, but miracles do happen! Arlo’s behaviour away from home is coming on leaps and bounds!
We’ve had a fantastic summer with Corey, so to some extent there was no pressure for the rest of the season. Except that I wanted to do a little bit more eventing for myself before the winter set in.
There is concern regarding a potential forage shortage this winter. Many ran out of forage before the end of last winter and a dry summer has seen the early use of hay and haylage harvested this year. So if you find yourself short of hay and haylage this winter then what’s the alternative?
Well, how thrilled am I?! My new boy arrived last week and the following day, the sun was shining so I got on and he was so lovely and not silly at all!
So this season has been a real roller coaster of emotions, winning my first International on Candy, moving her up to Advanced and then jumping double-clear around her first 3* at Burgham International, to then going to Blenheim full of excitement for a good result and having an over-excited horse on my hands.
This summer the Dengie Nutrition Team have seen many horses that have gained weight year on year. Here we explain why winter is a great time to encourage weight loss along with information on lower calorie, high fibre feeds.
