The end of the event season is fast approaching, it’s been a time for the more experienced horses to compete at the three day events they have been working towards all year. My young ones also turned out to soak in all they have learnt this year, as the last few weeks have been mainly about Emily!
This season, we have been to some wonderful 3 day events starting with the Young Rider Europeans in Poland where Em and Loxley were part of the Gold medal winning British Team… whoop whoop!! Then it was Blenheim, Ballindenisk (Ireland), and Osberton with some thrilling results (see Em’s FB page/twitter for more news on those events!) The last and main event Emily has in her sights is Pau CCI**** with Brookleigh, at the end of October. It has been her dream for many years to ride at 4 star level and it is now imminent…it’s so exciting!
In other news, we are pleased Shadow Boxer has been sold to a talented junior rider, from Holland. Snuggy Hoods came to my yard for a photo shoot, it was a fun day and they managed to get some fantastic new pics and video clips to help promote their wonderful products.
My trip to Burghley, was a great success. Sadly it wasn’t to ride, but to do an official course walk and sell my book. We now have a couple of weeks at home to catch up before heading off to France for the last event of the season.
