Event Rider From Cheshire

Most Memorable Horse/Pony: Diamond Will (aka William) has to be my most memorable horse who took me to 1* and BE Intermediate and Fortunes Enigma (aka Donut) was a pony who took me from 2’3″ to my first BE Novice.

Top Tip: Always keep things organised. Have lots of patience and be prepared for lots of ups and downs. Also build a great support team (mine is fantastic, made up of owners, friends and family.)

Progressing – Charlotte Clewlow

   

August started with a lovely day at Cholmondeley Horse trials with Paddy who produced a nice dressage test for 27.8, had a silly pole show jumping and stormed the cross country to take 2nd place, such a lovely consistent horse. My average day on the yard during August has been quite busy I generally work […]

Bringing on young horses – Charlotte Clewlow

   

I currently have four young horses that have all competed during July, it is always interesting to progress them on and can be a challenge to get the balance of training and competing right for each horse. My aim is to ensure that the young horses have the confidence to enjoy their job and want to try […]

How time flies – Charlotte Clewlow

   

Not quite sure how we are 6 months into the year – how time flies! June felt like it must of been a record month for long days with early morning’s and a few 4am alarm calls. We have on occasion left the house in the dark and returned in the dark – these are […]

Competitions and Youngsters – Charlotte Clewlow

   

May has been a month of competitions and training youngsters. I’m loving the sunshine and light evening although my hours of work are getting longer and longer, it’s a good job I love what I do. We started the month with XC schooling in the sunshine at Somerford. Katie had her first experience of XC […]

A month of Variety – Charlotte Clewlow

   

April has been a month of variety I have ridden about 15 different horses, whilst trying to dodge the rain and hail. The month started with good news that Joey’s fracture was healing well – in fact the x-ray showed it healed, the vets gave me permission to start turning him out – sedated of […]

A Fantastic start to the event season – Charlotte Clewlow

   

March seems to have been a month of babies, 4yr old Katie whom I backed in January went home for a break after her first show jump outing. Her owners Spring Stud sent 5 yr old 16.3hh Pippa over who was being weaned from her foal and backed, she has a lovely temperament and is progressing well. […]

The end of an era – Charlotte Clewlow

   

January ended with the end of an era for us at CJC Eventing, the lorry that we have used for over 11 years went up for sale. It holds so many memories as I was just 10 when it was bought and still on my 13.2hh pony. We have literally toured the country in it […]

Happy to see January end – hoping February will be better!! – Charlotte Clewlow

   

January started with the calendars going up, plans being made and the season in sight!! Some of my plans now seem to have gone up in smoke! The month began well with all the horses feeling and working well. 4 year old Katie who arrived at the beginning of the month, had a week of […]

Dodging the rain – Charlotte Clewlow

   

I seem to have spent a lot of time trying to dodge the rain during November – thinking we all need flippers or webbed feet!! After a month without competing I couldn’t wait to get out again – Joey and Bertie went to the fantastically organised arena eventing at Kelsall Hill and despite the persistent […]
