Sadly after Badminton Tess’s lameness has persisted and due to some arthritic changes we have had to retire her from competition. She is going to now have babies and get fat! (what she has always wanted!). In the past she has had 5 successful embryo transfers and I have been advised this time to let her have her own baby. She will be AI’d next week…husband yet to be decided!
Lottie competed at a some more events during May, with very smart dressage and showjumping performances, but still a work in progress with the brakes and steering XC!
My 5yr olds completed their 2nd BE100 at the lovely new event at Millfield School.
Emily has had a successful last month…the high points being:
- Winning another Young Rider trial at Aston Le Walls
- Finished 3rd at Chatsworth CIC*** with Brookleigh.
- 5th and 6th on Charlemagne and Loxley at the CCIu21** National Championships at Houghton Hall
- Next was a 5th at Bramham CCIu25*** with Brookleigh
All very exciting!!
