Looking forward to 2019
Well Cherise and I started the new year in style by taking Darcy and Flo out with the Readyfield Bloodhounds at Osberton. Its a beautiful estate with fantastic ground and we are very grateful for all the land owners who let us over there land. Also a big thanks to all who make the day happen as with anything like this it takes a lot of organising. Both horses were as usual complete superstars flying everything we pointed them at including a few of the 2* event jumps! Flo really is my superstar she is just fab, so mannerly but at the same time keen and loves her job flying every obstacle asked of her. Cherise and Darcy look like a real team together now and as long as Flo is just in front or just behind she's happy as long as no one dares to come between them!!
If all goes according to plan we have lots planned in 2019. We have had a new stable built at home just in time for two full livery's arriving on Thursday for the next three months, which might be a bit of a shock to the system after having 5 for the last few months!! Ringo and Maverick belong to some good friends of ours and always fit in well when they come to stay, both are lovely horses so we will look forward to working with them.
Lucy is back in full training for 2019 event season, we have got some training sessions set up in January as well as doing some training shows. We will aim to start eventing in March, starting with a couple of Novices then hopefully move back up to intermediate all being well, I would love to do a 2* which is now a 3* this year.
Blinx is going really well and he is also booked in for his first Caroline Moore lesson, and hopefully a combined training at the end of the month aswell as a couple more days hunting. He hopefully will be ready to do so 90cm events early in the season.
Flo is feeling on top form, our friend Hannah is hopefully going to do some events on her, she will certainly pleased to be out eventing again.
Darcy is going to make her eventing debut this year, she will start with some 90cm and go from there.
Finally we have Rosie my Daughter Ila's pony who is certainly feeling well at the moment, Ila is hopefully going to have lots of fun with the Quorn Pony Club this year.
