Sorry it has taken so long to get up to date, we have all been very busy at Little Garendon as it is that time of year when there are never enough hours in the day!!
We have lots of guests at the moment including Beatle who is a lovely horse we have in to sell as his owner hasn't got the time to do him justice, please look at the for sale page if you are interested, we would really like to find him a lovely home.
Posh has been out dressaging at Witham Villa, she wasn't herself in the first test I don't know whether the flies were bothering her or just didn't feel like it!! She did a lovely test in her second test to win the class.
We took Chester and Flo show jumping to Weston lawns, Chester jumped well just having one down, it was Flos first time out since cutting her leg at Rockingham and she was on top form we just jumped the newcomers and she jumped a foot perfect clear round, there were nearly 30 people in the jump off so thought may as well go for it and it was going so well till she just tipped the last rail with a toe, we were fastest time as well!! so close but so far!!
Last Sunday we were at Eland with Tex and Chester, I was riding both of them this week as Cherise asked if I would take Chester, I didn't hesitate to say yes please!! He did a very smart dressage for a mark of 27.5, I knew it would be a good mark as the judge popped her head out at the end of test to say well done, always a good sign. He show jumped really, he was brilliant round a very testing course just having a hesitation up on the bank which had a big ditch in front of it, just a green mistake. Tex was a bit unbalanced in the dressage as the arenas were very hard and slippy and he is a big horse but still was very accurate and obedient, he did a lovely show jump round and was the most forward he has been round the cross country just having a hesitation at the step into water. I was really pleased with both of them and can't wait till next time.
