8th March -
Well the eventing season has officially begun, but I'm not actually doing my first event till the 26th March at Somerly Park. This will be with Moo and Rusty, both doing an OI. Moo and Rusty are both aimed at Tattersalls International in Ireland, where the plan is for both of them to do the CCI3*.
Then a couple of days later will see us competing at Howick on the 30th and 31st March. I'll be riding Africa and Gin both in the BE 100 Open, and Emily will be having her first ever event on her horse Mis, also doing a BE 100.
Fern on Sandy will be having their first run at Larkhill on the 6th April - BE 90. Sandy is 29 yrs old this year,(but according to fern, feels like a 5 yr old !!), so we are going to very careful with him.
27th Feb. - The RoR evening talk at Broomes nr Chepstow went well - see news for full report.
4th March - The Australian training day with German show jumper Gilbert Bloekmann at Rectory Farm nr Cirencester was excellent. I took Moo and Rusty, and was part of a couple of group lessons with Sam Griffiths and Chris Burton. Rusty is learning well and tries really hard, and Moo got a very good compliment from Gilbert at the end of our last few jumps - Gilbert said 'perfect !'
5th March - XC clinic at Stockland Lovell was a great success - see news for full report.
The 3 girls have now started doing their blogs on their own page. I'm a bit worried what they might say ! Hopefully they wont give up all our secret winning formulas !
