We we have had a lovely Christmas and are now ready for 2017!
Lucy has just had a three week break, she is back hacking now. All being well we will aim to start eventing mid March we will start at BE100 and hopefully step up to Novice mid season. Hopefully I will fit a show jump lesson in with her and Lulu with Holly Smith before she goes off to Spain jumping, I really enjoy training with Holly as she is straight to the point and puts things in simple terms, the same can be said of Charlie Hinton who I have dressage lesson with two weeks today, hopefully Lucy will be feeling amenable! I would like to qualify, Lucy, Lulu & Flo for the Scope Show jumping festival, and Lucy & Lulu for the Discovery second rounds and Lulu the British Novice second rounds. I have decided not to event Flo this year as I feel it has become to expensive to do just for fun and Flo has nothing left to prove although I do feel sad that we have been priced out like so many others. She is thoroughly enjoying her hunting and I will team chase and show jump her, I would love her to be the first horse I win over a thousand pounds on! Lulu is going really well, after having a pole in her first BS show she has jumped clear every time out since gaining 3 of her 4 double clears at British Novice and her first Discovery double clear. She may do a few events, although I feel show jumping is where she excels. Darcy is on good form and is enjoying her hunting with Mum & Cherise, and cherish will do some unaffiliated show jumping and arena eventing with her.
Bailey who we had in before Christmas has gone off to his new home and we wish Charlotte the best of luck with him. Rogey who we bought at the same time as Lucy has arrived back at LG after her owner has taken the hard decision to give up horses, so we will do a bit with her and then she will be looking for a new home. Ringo is coming for a long stay whilst his owners go travelling for three months, he is a lovely quality horse and I am looking forward to working with him and finally Barney who we broke in two years ago before going off to be a winning racehorse is coming back to be restarted after his holidays before heading back to his trainers in Newmarket to hopefully carry on his good form.
I promise to to keep you all updated with all we get up to!!
