Nicky Polson (right) has been helping us for a good few weeks now, and is a great addition to the team. Nicky comes to us for the summer as she is off back to uni in September. It's great having her here. Excitingly, I have topped the Foundation Points Table this month, which is really cool, and reflects really well on the lovely horses that
I have at the moment. It's also thanks to the lovely people that help and support me! Thanks Guys!!!
Well, we have been trying to dodge the rain, but despite the inevitable cancellations we have managed to get the horses out...and winning! Minime III and Chatty(left) got a run at the wet Catton Park where I was fortunate enough to come first on Mini with Chatty not far behind in the Open Novice. Both performed good tests and jumped their socks off. They're really nice horses and I'm really excited about the future with them. With events being cancelled left right and centre we have braved a couple of showjumping shows, and Oliver has been the star of the yard, winning Arena eventing at Vale View and the Newcomers at Keysoe. He is such fun to jump and I really feel we have forged a good partnership now! The others have been good too, although it is always a bit boring jumping non competitively on a ticket!! Bullards Pale Ale (Below) jumped brilliantly at Vale View Arena eventing to finish second out of about 60 starters. She is a cracking mare and will make someone a really good horse, as sadly for us she is for sale. We're hoping to get her out Novice eventing soon..weather dependant!!
