We kept all the horses ticking along over Christmas and New Year and they are now all set to go Arena Eventing in a couple of weeks or do some Show Jumping. Harry has been the only one out competing, still showing off his Show Jumping moves! He had another trip to Morris and was 2nd in the Discovery as well as going to Howe where he was 3rd in the Discovery and double clear in the Newcomers, it’s quite fun when you are on such a careful jumper!!!
New in for the New Year on the horse front is Sky, who I had down here in the summer for Claire Smith, when Claire was struggling to have time to do her plus her other commitments. Claire then had her home and was 2nd in the BE90 at Burgie but was still struggling to find time to do her. So I have bought a share in her and am thrilled to have her back! I liked her in the summer and I am loving her at the moment, the plan is to find her a really good competitive home, but I wont be in a rush to sell her on as she is SMART, a real junior team prospect. I also have a very nice TB called Joey in, who is just being re started at the moment he is a really lovely person so hopefully he will be fun to do, although early days at the moment.
I have a few XC training Clinics coming up at Rockrose on the 15th Jan, 12th Feb, 11th March, 15th April and on the 8th and 21st Feb at Edenside, if you are looking for dates to put in your diary.
