Busy Week…

As the season draws closer we have had very busy week continuing to prepare all the horses. On Tuesday we took DIAMOND HOLLY, PRIMITIVE WARRIOR and ESCAPE ROUTE to Summerhouse for the BS and our 2nd rider Dani brought her own BIZBEE GERY.

In the British Novice PRIMITIVE WARRIOR was much improved and popped round gaining in confidence all the time and ESCAPE ROUTE jumped a beautiful double clear. He was on a ticket so no prizes for him this time but I was thrilled with how much more balanced and settled he was in the arena. Dani was the star however winning the British Novice and also coming 2nd in the Discovery. DIAMOND HOLLY jumped double clears in both the Discovery and the 1.05m. She is a very new horse for me with a unique temperament so we are still getting to know each other, but overall I was thrilled with the feeling she gave me and I am so excited to see what the future has in store for her.

This weekend we headed to Tweseldown XC schooling with MAGNIFIQUE VD, ESCAPE ROUTE and DIAMOND HOLLY. The weather was absolutely horrendous with sideways wind and rain all day but the ground at Tweseldown held up really well. All three were very excited to be out and rather enthusiastic to be galloping about on grass at last! I also had a great time teaching Dani on BIZBEE and new client Liv on her horse DOTTY who is heading to Badminton Grassroots Champs.
