Camilla Hardie Update

19th January 2017

Camilla has fallen victim to the rubbish British weather this week, but the horses haven’t gotten off too lightly! “Bit of typical British Winter this week. Had entered to go arena eventing on Saturday, but with the weather forecasters foretelling biblical snow for Thursday night, they cancelled it with early warning. I searched for alternative […]

“It seems a long time since I have written an update, so long ago that it was last year. Since that time, I have been abroad on holiday where horses were a blissful distant memory. Santa had to deliver his presents to a hotel and the sun was lovely and relaxing. I landed into Birmingham, […]

Camilla Hardie’s Review of 2016

22nd December 2016

Wow-wee what a year. Probably my greatest equestrian year. It’ll be hard to top. We’ve completed all our aims and everyone has finished the year sound and happy, what more can you want? Where to start? The Blue Chip Showjumping Championships was our first big outing, always demonstrating that pure showjumping indoors can be quite […]

“This week signalled Bailey’s first showjumping lesson, at a new indoor venue for him. We arrived in the dark and he marched straight off the lorry into the indoor full of show jumps and totally ‘got on with it’. We were joined by 2 other horses so it was a great experience for him. We […]

“We have had a quiet couple of weeks competing wise. Mother Nature has thrown it at us somewhat so we had to spend a few weekends retrieving our field shelter from the other side of a 15 foot hedge. So the boys have all been just ticking along, mainly hacking when the weather allows.  At […]

“Last weekend was a busy one. Saturday Beau and Dougal were ferried down the motorway to Solihull for the Joshua Jones Blue Chip qualifier. One thing is for certain at Solihull, there will be plenty in the class. True to form we rolled onto an already full car park at 10am, and entered into the […]

“We have had a bit of a revelation this week, Bailey had the dentist. He’s had his teeth done twice in the year I have had him, including removing a Woolf tooth, but he has never been settled in his mouth. He had 3 baby caps still stuck, so time for the dentist.  He found lots […]

“This week Dougal is just slopping about, I’m keeping him entertained with a little low key hacking. Bailey has been back in work for a couple of weeks and is ticking over, and Beau was entered for Kelsall arena eventing on Saturday.  Friday morning, Beau came in lame. No heat, no swelling, nothing, he’s never had […]

“As the weather starts changing and the days are getting shorter, we zoom into the last event of the year. Last year I did so many events all over the country I decided this year to finish a little earlier, at Weston Park. The horses have nothing left to prove for me this year so […]

28th September 2016

“With just 2 events left this year, my alarm was set for ‘eventing o’clock’ for the penultimate one at Kelsall. I think Kelsall is one of my most favourite events, it’s local, dressage arenas are flat, showjumping arena is large, cross country is big and bold with great viewing, and it’s always so friendly and […]
