February Round Up

Well, it’s been pretty crap with the weather over the last three weeks. Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis and then some unnamed one dropped by to say hi last weekend... I’ve had to re-arrange flatwork training sessions, not been able to jump and had competitions cancelled. The horses at our yard are permanently stabled at the moment because the fields are just so wet! However, while I’m usually not a big fan of horses being kept in, it has played its uses.

Dressage Competition Report - 22.02.2020

Thank god....we FINALLY got out and away from home to enter a dressage competition! With storm Ciara, we'd had to cancel our flatwork training session, and storm Dennis later that week put hold to a riding club dressage we'd planned to head out to. The happiness though of it being cancelled on the Saturday night while I sat listening to the wind howling and rain beating against the window outside,  was real! In reaction, I put an entry into another local venue running express dressage format the weekend afterwards, and prayed the weather gods would be on our side.

They weren't, but it wasn't quite as bad as the weather forecast said...not quite!

January Round Up

Wahoo! I got through January without even a glimmer of January blues, and it didn't seem like many others suffered with them either...Well done everyone for keepig them at bay! 💪 So with such a positive start, what did we get up throughout January to kick start our 2020!?

Well, it's been all go that's for sure, but I'm so happy as I haven't felt rushed or under pressure once this month, so it really shows I've got all-round balance struck up pretty well. From cold & crisp morning hacking, to dressage competitions and showjumping training, we've managed to pack it all into the last 31 days!

A Weekend Away Showjumping at Morris Equestrian Centre

During the last five years, there have been times that I have lost all faith and confidence that jumping around a 90cm course, with its questions and challenges, was never going to happen. Even after our very successful weekend at Morris Equestrian two months ago, where we jumped the 70cm and 85cm classes, it didn't feel like jumping a British Novice at a category 2 show was within range of achieving.
