In her latest blog, Maisie Randle updates us on how her final season on ponies went and what her plans are going forward with her two homebred mares, Lunar and Lupin.
Last time I blogged I had just returned from a fun week at Burghley, the end of the season was approaching and there were only a few more events left to go in the calendar.
Through the spring and summer Maisie has gained more experience eventing at Novice level and doing Pony Trials on Petal and Oli. Read her latest blog to find out how her season went.
It has been a very busy summer with the ponies.The Pony Club Championships, C+ test, training camps and lots of eventing! The first exciting thing to happen was the arrival of a new ride for me, an experienced Pony Trial pony called Petal.
I can’t believe it is August already! Since the event season started back in April the weeks have just flown by and so much has happened.
As sadly there have been no competitions, I thought I would tell you how I have been spending lockdown #3, fitting in doing the ponies with online school lessons and what a typical day looks like for me.
Although it hasn’t been a normal event season I am so grateful that I did get the opportunity to do some competitions and I couldn’t be happier with the ponies performances.
Maisie's preparations for the event season were going well and she was looking forward to her first event...then Coronavirus happened and everything stopped! Four months later she has competed at her first event with Bracken.
Hopefully, by the beginning of April when my Eventing season is due to start the weather will have improved dramatically and the next time I blog the event season will be in full swing!
The end of the event season didn’t go quite to plan basically because the weather meant that all the events I had planned to do in the autumn were cancelled.
Where has the summer gone? It has flown by and now I’m back at school! It was a great summer though and I have had a good time with all the ponies.
