We are all busy at Little Garendon at the moment as we have seven horses in full work, Beatle has come to be sold he is an ex racehorse looking for a new home to give him a new career, please look on the for sale page for more about him and lots of photos. I have been busy working on Posh and Flo at home, Flo is back in full work after cutting herself at Rockingham and we are aiming for Aston le Walls Intermediate in the middle of July, Posh is going really well on the flat so need to look out dressage show for her and see if we can do it aswell in public!! I have got Kim Sleath coming to give me a dressage lesson on both horses on Wednesday. Darcy is slowly improving but managed to get her self cast and was a little stiff for a couple of days but now back on track. Chester is going well, we took him for a practice at a friends in the week (pictured above), he is going fab at the moment and has his next event in a couple of weeks.
