How is it already February?! I still have seven thank you letters to write, yet I’m looking at what events are open for entries. It's time to start preparing for the 2017 season!

I'm sad to say it's been a very very tough few weeks...On the Friday of Addington High Profile Show, Leo was given a couple of hours in the field before we travelled. Sadly he spent those few hours playing a little too harshly.
Since our last BE event in October last year Flynn and I have spent most of our time hacking at home with the odd schooling session here and there, so he’s had plenty of time to recharge his batteries ready for the 2017 season.
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...
I find January is always a miserable time of year with horses, because everything is wet and if its not wet it is either raining, snowing, freezing or really windy!
Leo and I have enjoyed a lovely Christmas, but we had only a limited break as we have been busy throughout December preparing for the FEI test review weekend for the GB Pony Squad riders.
Since Fergus’ arrival in July last year, we have been quietly getting to know each other in between competing with Flynn over the latter part of the 2016 season. We had great fun and things were going really well.
