Fewer builders and big internationals

Date:

Finally we are starting to see fewer and fewer builders on the yard and it’s looking fantastic! Everything now has its place or near enough! The horses are fully settled and loving spending most their time out in the fields!

After a very successful Bicton with both Cor Y Taran and Freestyle R finishing double clear in the 2*L we headed to our most local event Nunney International.

Cor Y Taran did a lovely dressage, clear showjumping and withdrawn xc due to the ground being on the firm side. I’m incredibly excited to be stepping him up to Intermediate at his next run at Upton in a weeks time!

Freestyle R and Equador MW were both in the CCI3* at Nunney. Two nice dressage test with room for improvements. Both had a pole SJ and clear xc! Freestyle R has now qualified for CCI4*s and we head to Aston 4* next week!

After a cold and wet spring we are now having a very dry summer and the horses are having to deal with the ground changing from muddy to hard! Icing the horses legs becomes more and more important as we try and prevent any concussion up the legs.

After a very busy move, mixed in with some Big Internationals and lots of abandon events, I managed to have a few days away from the horses to go to Glastonbury festival which I’m very fortunate to live within 10mins of the festival. An incredible weekend watching the best artist from around the world and now I’m really looking forward to getting on with some big summer Internationals!
