It’s Spring!?

   

As I sit typing out my first blog in spring, I’m currently sat almost on top of the log burner looking out on to a very white, snowy valley. Our days have been starting off filling up 4/6 water buckets of hot water and steadily carrying them down to the yard so the horses can […]

A blur of hunting, mud and worrying

   

Since Christmas, life has been a blur of hunting, mud, more hunting and obsessive worrying over the point to pointer! A chilly day for hunting, but less mud for once! The Duke of Spain belongs to a syndicate of locals from the nearby pub. He has previously won a maiden, not with us, and we […]

Springing into 2018

   

As I write this update I sit back and ponder for a moment as to how much commitment, strength, courage and love that us Equestrians must have within us to do what we do in devoting ourselves to the horse! I am quite sure I am not the only person this winter who has had […]

Bitter Sweet – Matthew Ainsworth

   

The pinnacle of the season, HOYS, was fairly bitter sweet for us this year. Starting off the week was Small Hunter, Wentworth. We travelled to the NEC early doors, as it’s only an hour away for us. He had a good trot round with everyone else, crammed in the main arena, before his class. We […]

HOYS Bound – Matthew Ainsworth

   

Just after my last blog instalment, I had the pleasure of going to Ireland to judge the “All Ireland 3 year old Championship” which is held at Bannow Rathangan Show, in Co Wexford. The horses which came forward to compete in this class, have to have previously qualified for it, during the current showing season […]

A Real Mixture.. (Mash It Up!) – Donna Bamonte

   

As I write my current blog I sit back and realise how different my season has been, new horses, new faces, new disciplines, ups and downs and new beginnings… though I am glad to say everything has turned out for the better.. My season hasn’t been quite as busy regarding the Showing as Noble Jack […]

So worth it! – Matthew Ainsworth

   

Since our last blog, it feels like we traveled the length of the country going to shows, but it’s been so worth it! After Devon, we went to the Royal Bath and West. This show had a new setup for the horse section. There was always a huge main ring, which was fantastic to ride […]
