What an extra-ordinary experience Lockdown has been. Our training has continued at home with eager anticipation of return to competition.
As we look forward to the chance of returning to cross country, I hope we can remember and retain the lessons we’ve learnt during “the extraordinary season of 2020”.
This handsome horse arrived with me from Ireland just over three weeks ago, looking pretty light, weak and a little sorry for himself. Having raced in August and been ‘spelling’ in the interim.
After a successful run at Bramham Horse Trials, Lucy Jackson and Superstition are another step closer to any sportman's dream - the 2020 Olympic Games
It's been something of a whirlwind week for Dengie supported rider Lucy Jackson with a very happy ending in the ERM at Chatsworth.
We’ve all known horses long enough to know that it doesn’t always go according to plan. So when it does, enjoy it! We’ve had something of a fantastic week with our varied team!
Well finally a smooth day at the office. It feels like it's been awhile! Willy Do and Superstition contested the Advanced Intermediate class at the Gatcombe Horse Trials last weekend.
We've begun 2018 at max capacity! Hugely exciting times as our new yard and the business are thankfully seemingly going from strength to strength.
So it's been a fairly eventful few months since we last checked in, I've had a baby girl "Evie", and we've moved yards from Banbury to Cheltenham!
So that's it, the end of term. Its been a disappointing year in many ways, but thankfully a good run of form to finish the season has left me hungry for more.
Hooray!! My first ever (UK) Advanced winner! Clever Bosun (aka Beano) is thoroughly appreciating his new regime, running more and training less is clearly the answer to a happy horse!
