  1. Where is the summer disappearing too....I cant believe it is July already!!! So much has happened since I last updated my blog! My new 4yr old is the best thing to happen to the team in a long time, he is proving to be such a dude! Not only does he have the attitude to die for he is already proving himself to be one to watch on the young horse circuit by winning a Badminton young horse Qualifier with a great score of 8.0 in only his second ever competition and qualifying for the Championships at Badminton House in 2 weeks time! I cant wait, it will be a massive learning experience for him! Alfie is having a great season at Small Tour being placed at every Premier League he has entered including a 2nd at Wellington Premier League. He has qualified for the Regionals at PSG and Inter 1 although i plan to only contest at Psg as I feel he needs to get himself more established at Inter 1 over the winter to come out firing next season and hopefully go and compete internationally abroad which we are very excited about! His Grand Prix work is coming along nicely! We are thrilled to have gained support from Nedz Bed horse bedding company too which we are thrilled about as we love their bedding epecially as it is treated with anti bacterial/fungal potions by my brilliant sponsors Forest Farmacy so I know it is top notch bedding! Very excited to be part of the Nedz Bed team :) I shall keep you all updated about the next few weeks as Alfie will contest the Psg's at Hartpury PL and DG has his young horse championships!! Busy few weeks ahead! Keep up to date with all the news on my facebook page aswell!

  2. Well i hope you all like my new and improved Website thanks to the brilliant Tara Williams ( website and Graphic Design!! Cant believe it is nearly April already, this year is flying by already!!! Things have been so busy here in the last few months i can hardly keep up!! Due to high demand we have increased the yard by another 2 stables to accomodate 2 new full training Liveries.....both are completely different but I am so enjoying the improvements they are showing already. Next week we fly to Switzerland to try some potential new up and coming young horses to join the team which is so exciting! Will keep you posted on how we get on and I shall post Piccies if we have any luck! I have had to make the decision to retire Lionheart II due to has been very hard to come to terms with but he still remains top dog on the yard being pampered and fussed over, keeping us all on our toes kicking his stable walls and door still for England!! He loves going out in his field everyday and is enjoying being a mudwarrior!! Alfie is going great after a lot of hard work training and a little break over the winter, he has filled out and looking a million dollars, we hope to go to our first big competition in May at small tour. He has grown up so much since last year and I am so excited about his season this year! Anyway thats all for now....I shall update my blog regularly over the season and also make sure you continue to follow me on Face book!!

  3. I Cant believe it is nearly February already! Christmas and New year flew past...all the horses had a slightly more relaxed time but the work load is in full swing now and they are loving it!! Alfie (Farramir) ended his season on a major high after rocking out to The Rolling Stones with our first attempt at music freestyle together and he got a whopping 76% and qualified for the winter regionals in a few weeks! My trainer and friend from Switzerland came over for a few days before christmas and she really set us up for winter training.....Maverick is now working Elementary and Alfie is working Prix St George. 

    Leo is going from strength to strength after his time off games last season....he is now in full fittening work and very happy to be top dog again! I am aiming for him to do his first competition at the beginning of April at The College Premier League, I cant believe a whole year has gone by since his last Grand Prix test.....lets hope we pick up where we left off!!
    Alfie and I are now entered into the regional finals in Feb which I cant wait for, I've missed the competitions the last few months!

    Well i shall keep you posted on how they go and all our other news very soon!
