Rebecca tells all about Saumur!

Me and Lisci represented GB at our first international abroad in Saumur, France. I took both Rabbit and Lisci to Addington Premier League and my clients and liverys have enjoyed lots of success.   We all had a amazing time in Saumur at the end of April and it was a great experience. Lisci travelled […]

Update from Sarah Gadd

Last weekend, we were competing at Petley Wood Equestrian Centre. This is somewhere we haven’t been before and despite the journey being a bit slow due to the route there involving hardly any motorway roads, mainly B roads, it is somewhere I will go again as the school is lovely with a great surface. I had […]

What a week for Roo!

What a week, what a week, what a mighty good week!!!!!!! So we headed to Aston with Tig, Frog, Watt and with Donk, Otto and Sirius doing their first ever intermediate.

Manic eventing reports in. So on Tuesday last we headed to Portman with the Roster, Griffy and Sirius. We were towed in, that’s how bad the mid was but we got parked next to my favourite eventers, Alex and Simone Bragg, so nice. Sirius was doing his first event back and being a stallion I […]

Evie’s April Update

Evie has had a lovely couple of weekends starting with a trip to Sykehouse and training with Jo Whittaker. Breeze did some confidence building gridwork and it gave them a chance to work on position and timing. This was then incorporated into a small course, making it a great lesson.We stayed overnight thanks to Nik […]

Yesterday was marathon day and I’m very pleased to let you know that I completed the Brighton Marathon, yes all 26.2 miles!! I finished in the top 1/3 of under 35 year olds and in the top 25% of women runners so I couldn’t be happier with how I did, especially for my first marathon! It […]

Roo’s April Update

So off to Gatcombe we go with Friendly Game, Falvaro and El Dorado. Everyone did a lovely test, with Friendly constantly checking to see who was watching – maybe I should put him back onto Global Herbs Rigcalm! It was pretty muddy and slippy in the show jumping, which was causing carnage and I started […]
