Week 2 down, and on to 3! This was a pretty simple week, we just increased our walk work to 1 hour a day. BJ had 2 days off, which wasn’t planned, but just kind of happened. The week started well, and Wednesday (New Years Day) I found myself with some unexpected extra time, so […]Read More Week 2 Complete
A few weeks back I decided to head a little further afield for the Colne Valley Riding Club Dressage and Clear Round Show Jumping. I find BJ settles and has a nicer canter after a lil’ jump, so thought this would be a fab opportunity to have a little practice towards some combined training. We […]Read More Dressage and Clear Round SJ
Do you ever get those days when everything planned just doesnt appeal to you? That’s what happened today! I was due to head to my monthly peer group meeting but woke up with a niggling head ache and a drive to get in the salon and get a few bits sorted I’d neglected. Having cleared […]Read More Frillies, Dressage Practice…and a sneaky jump!
So, I’m starting something new for me. I’m going to share some of our daily activities like schooling, lunging etc. I’m trying to keep myself focused from the high of Sunday and build on what the judges say, so by next month there will hopefully be an improvement in our performance. Today we had a […]Read More Daily Ramblings 26/03/19
In all the excitement of the dressage I’ve been a lil slack sharing our Side Saddle lesson last week. It’s been on my wishlist for years to try it and I promised myself when I bought BJ that we’d start within a year, well, 5 months in and we had a lesson booked. I’m very […]Read More Side Saddle Playtime!
Yesterday BJ had another playdate with his favourite gal Nellie, this time in the jump field! After a taster of jumping in our lesson Thursday I wanted to play again, but this time without the security of a fence one side! He was such a good boy, we kept it nice and slow and steady […]Read More Jumping Playdate with Miss Nellie
Anyone following me on on social profiles will have noticed I’ve been taking part in the #teamequissimo BA search. Today is the last day….and I’m a sad panda! I’m really going to miss my daily task or chats and have really enjoyed taking part. It’s genuinely pushed me to do things I’ve avoided for months/years! […]Read More Thank you Equissimo
Some of my followers may have noticed that I have been taking part in the #teamequissimo brand ambassador search this month. And today’s question is what I can offer them, so here goes… First off…this boof…Monsieur Bojack, as I affectionately know him, has an impressive Poirot moustache, which I feel if the source of all […]Read More #teamequissimo – What Can I Offer You
Today’s challenge from Equissimo is to share our funniest equestrian stories…I didn’t think I had any U or PG rated ones I could share, but while walking the Piglet I remembered a doozy! We’ll go back maybe 8 years, to Lummen in Belgium. It’s a 2 week show and has rained beyond belief! Everywhere is […]Read More #teamequissimo funny stories
It’s been about a month since I had a little shop, so decided to treat myself, well, the boy with a few new bits and thought I’d do a little review. I placed 2 orders and received them both within a week of placing, well within the time stated on the website and easily trackable. […]Read More Equissimo Order Review
