Over the past couple of weeks I’ve taken a few days leave and the extra free time has been filled with lots of fun…
Finished up 6th individual and my team came 2nd :D

Owning horses can be an emotional trip.
I’ve owned Barbarella for 20 years now and I couldn’t have sold her on after 2 years let alone now!
Thankfully, because she is quite simply a wonder horse, she is now in a perfect retirement home where I visited her earler this week.
She is still giving her best for the amazing kids that come to ride her and looking fabulous even at the grand old age of 26.
(that’s old for a horse)

It may seem like a rumour but I understand that Spring is officially with us!
There are calves bouncing around the yard (probably trying to keep warm) and yesterday Tally (the mare) finally dropped a bay colt. Very cute in the way that only baby creatures can be.
So with all this activity Megan (my mare) had her first training/competition weekend outing of the year. Outdoors on an artificial surface at Weston Lawns, Bulkington.
Dressage training and competition.
12.15 training session in fairly mild weather, she was fairly well behaved…
Competed in 2 tests later in the afternoon as the chill set in. Megan was a little bit sharp as the cold wind got up. Dressage never dull with this one!
N26 - 66.8%
E43 - 68.6%
Comments from the judges…
a little spooky…but lots to like
15.00 Show Jump Training back outside at Weston Lawns.
OGM so cold! Last jumped back in October so needed to blow away the cobwebs. Megan behaved as long as I kept hold and kept my leg on.
Great to be out and about again. Was worth the effort of tracking down a replacement tyre for the trailer.
Look forward to better weather ;-)

OMG it was just a touch chilly last night but a few brave folk did venture to join us at Weston Village Hall for the last in a series of evening talks that I have been organising for Stoneleigh Riding Club.
Big thanks to our guest speakers Alan Woodyatt & John Hayes from Warwickshire College Farriery Unit and Donna Case from Spillers Horse Feeds.
A bit of a buzz and lots of chat during the break. Hit the spot!
Phillipa produced another excellent hot supper with extra tasty pancakes.
Sugar ‘n’ lemon and chocolate fillings too mmmmm…
On reflection, the size of the audience worked well for the informal style of the evening.
I do still get disappointed that more don't come.
Guess I'm easily disappointed?
