    Getting ready for the 2017 season

    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.

    Fun and Games with Fergus

    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.

    Ending the Season in Style

    With the eventing season coming to an end, we headed off to Little Downham for our last event to compete in the BE90 Regional Final, our one and only chance of qualifying for the Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton next year.

    Back on Track

    Having withdrawn from the last two events I was very excited to be heading off to Horseheath’s inaugural event. The sun was shining and Flynn and I were up for it.

    New Beginnings

    Since losing Spider earlier this year I have been doing lots of soul searching…Do I get another horse? Do I just concentrate on Flynn? If I do get another horse, do I get a baby or do I get a proven competition horse? Do I give up completely?

    Bad Luck and Bad Weather

    The best laid plans don’t always come to fruition, after having had a fantastic run at Keysoe with the Riding Club we had a run of bad luck with horrendous weather and uncomfortable shoes!

    Badminton Success

    So, we've done it, we've completed our first Mitsubishi Motors Cup at Badminton! And WOW... what an experience it was!!!! We arrived in torrential rain, not a good start, but we were optimistic the weather would change for the better!

    The Highs and Lows of Horses

    A lot has happened since our incredible high at Oasby…We tragically lost Spider two weeks later to a sudden and very bad bout of colic which was absolutely devastating; it was such a shock and I still can’t believe it writing this nearly a month later.

    A First For Us

    So, after having a little wobble over the last couple of weeks (two falls showjump training at home – one was pretty nasty), Flynn and I went to our first BE competition of the season aiming to have fun and stay on!

    Team Qualified

    Last Saturday we went to Keysoe for the Area Dressage Qualifiers competing for the Cambridge and District Riding Club. We rode the BRC D10 test for one of our Novice and Intermediate Teams. Flynn warmed up really well using the techniques we learnt at camp the previous week.

    Great Start to the Season

    We had a great day at Keysoe Arena Eventing; Flynn was on flying form and produced a double clear for 4th place - not bad for our first event of the season! This last weekend we were at the Eventing Camp at Somerford Park which was organised through the Aberdeen Riding Club.

    Jumping for Joy with Piggy French

    It's not every day you're invited for a Show Jumping lesson with Piggy French, but that's exactly what happened. After replying to a post on the Your Horse Magazine Facebook page, inviting people to apply for the lesson that would feature in an article in the magazine, they picked me out of 60 odd applications - I couldn't believe it!
