Open day & Pas de Deux

It’s been a busy few weeks since I last posted a blog, so I’m sorry for the delay in getting this online!   A couple of weeks ago Charlotte and I went to our good friend Emma Blundel’s Mount St John Stud for its 2015 Open Day. It was a lovely day, showcasing her incredible […]

A fun and exciting day at Hickstead!

On Monday night I took a trip down south to Hickstead Show Ground. It is where they hold the famous Hickstead Derby for Show jumping. They have a great series of Dressage competitions running there too.   They range from Internationals through to their own unaffiliated championships, which are the Hickstead Dressage Masters. I had three clients […]

Coaching fun come rain or shine!

I hope you all had a fun and successful weekend with your horses? Last Saturday I did a Dressage Clinic for Bicester Riding Club. Everyone that took part really took on board my advice, they really showed an improvement in their horses way of going, plus their own understanding of achieving it. The only slight down side […]

It was held at Bury Farm Equestrian Centre, who did an excellent job of organising and running the competition. The Final will be held at the stunning Hickstead show ground, at the end of this month. I am very proud to say I […]

Success for team “Cast Aways”

Hi there dressage fans, I hope you are all well and enjoyed a great weekend?! It was lovely to hear back from some of my clients over the weekend. They had been out to a Team Quest competition, and had a successful time! The team has changed a little bit from last season, they were 7th overall in the final last […]

A fantastic trip to Denmark!

We have just returned home from a great time in Denmark. Charlotte was the Judge Rider for the 5 Year old Young Horse Championships at the Danish Warmblood Stallion Show. It was a hectic few days, with the Judging taking place over two days. Charlotte rode 17 horses on the first day, and 15 on […]
