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.

Having not jumped Fergus since the Club Show, I thought it was about time we went out to play; it turns out going Clear Round jumping is cheaper than hiring an arena of jumps for an hour, so off we toddled to the North Herts Equestrian Centre!
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 have had another busy fews weeks here. Candy was at Floors Castle in the CIC* - our first international together! Stan also went up to Floors to do the BYEH 5-year-old class.
Following the bad news earlier this year that Flynn had torn the deep digital flexor tendon in his foot, which means our eventing season was abruptly put to an end, I have now been concentrating on Fergus since the end of March.
The slow start to the season continued with some quiet time working on our basics and keeping the pressure low.
We had another good run last weekend, this time at Richmond Horse Trials, our local event. The weather was for once on side and the going was actually rather firm, it is normally really soft there this time of year!
