International debut goes down a storm!

We have just made it home from a very exciting trip to Holland for our first International dressage competition of the year. It was a competition that we have not been to before, a venue called Joosland in south of Holland, just 7 hours drive from Gloucester via the Euro Tunnel. We took two horses to […]

21 degrees to -6

So February has been a month of extremes! After our trip to Holland it was back home to catch up with my clients. All had been doing a sterling job with the home work they were given while I was away. We had plenty of gorgeous sunny days at home, but it struggled to get much over […]

Liverpool, Addington, Kentucky & Holland, 2018 off to hectic start!

  We welcomed in the new year with a trip to Liverpool International Horse Show where Charlotte and Carl both did a Master Class. With Charlotte onboard MSG Freestyle on the first night, then on Hawtins Delecarto on the second. Carl suggested Charlotte did the riding while he did the talking, it as always was a fun packed […]

Tyyrelcote Farm Charity weekend

I had a fun packed weekend coaching at Tyyrelcote Farm. My friend Louise Hardwick  did an amazing job organising the event, with a pink fancy dress theme for all, raffle prizes, a BBQ, and so much cake!!! It was inspiring to be a part of such a great atmosphere, with a lot of camaraderie between […]

Travels, Championships and another MasterClass

So since my last blog we have been once again busy with travels and competitions… We took a whirl wind trip to Montreal where ran a couple of private clinics. The host of the clinics were very nice, and we got to stay in a beautiful hotel looking out onto ski slopes. Although it was warm […]

From Hartpury to James Corden, then Australia to Hickstead!

We started a few weeks back with the CDI (International) and Premier League Competitions at Hartpury in Gloucestershire. Charlotte had many of her future […]

An amazing few days in Vienna

We took a quick trip to Vienna recently where Charlotte and Carl were recipients of the Medal for Exceptional Equitation. A very prestigious award given to them by the Spanish Riding School, in recognition of their horsemanship and standards of training excellence. I was extremely honoured to be with them, and experience another memorable moment in […]

Past competitions and future travels

Hi there everyone, I hope both you and your wonderful horses are keeping well, if that is at all possible on such a wet and windy day! So I thought as I hadn’t put out a blog in a little while that I should just recap where we have been and let you know what’s […]

Winter Championships and beyond!

Another jam packed week is coming to an end. We are currently at the British Dressage Winter Championships this week at Hartpury. Charlotte has qualified five horses, and so far has won one class, and was third in another. Two more are competing today (Saturday) and one on Sunday afternoon. The Championships are run extremely well, and the […]

Well we are finally back on solid ground after a crazy January! January has been a pretty amazing month for me. I was extremely fortunate to travel to Australia to meet up with Charlotte for the last leg of her master class tour. It was a great success with 2,000 spectators watching her training five […]
