Character building… Nah, I have plenty already thanks…

So before I go into my challenged moments, I’m going to sum up the positives… #characterbuilding #somerfordparkinternational #dreamteam @spaldinginternationalsaddlery @collegiate @franklinbillard @equimaging @westvilletherapysupplies  …And there have been plenty of positives on this busy weekend! Can you believe Tiny has decided to play on my team for all 3 phases, rather than just his favourite one!?! His incredible improvement on the flatwork and a real effort over the showjumps added to his magical Xc round for his 10th place double clear in a very competitive and enormous class (80 entries)!!! ????

Smokie was going amazingly cross country, til I got pulled up 4 from home for missing a loop… ? Oh well, he doesn’t know we got the big fat ‘E’!!! Pete was the best he’s felt Xc- think I’ve finally found a good bit for him! We had a momentary lapse of perfection at a double of hookin great corners set on a tricky line behind an open ditch hedge- but was then he was flat as a pancake having to showjump after he had put his heart and soul into the cross country.

Pictures attached show Wilf- who earnt a 2nd place at his final run at this level before we step up; Foxy showing some tail to the boys to see who can keep up with her flying form of 2 Intermediate starts with a 4th and a 7th! Joe earnt a placing, but he also made the fences look insignificant, so maybe time to step him up to Intermediate too!!! Macs near perfect day nearly earnt him a win at his 2nd ever attempt at Intermediate… So I’d say- by the feel of it… I have a very exciting team of stars!!! What a lucky girl I am to have an exciting team of owners believing in me, and trusting me with their/ our horses!!!

    I have ridden horses all my life. I have relocated my yard, to Vale View Equestrian, with facilities that are out of this world for producing my lovely horses. I am very excited about having these resources at my fingertips, and the results are shining through right across the board, showing my horses are settled, happy, and now able to work every aspect of their competition needs!
