Allerton park sleep deprivation!!

Nearly home from day 1 at Allerton Park with the Novice horses… 4 hours sleep til we turn around for tomorrow’s manic day!!! 3 Intermediates and 2 Advanced rounds before lunch!!Today was a great day in the flesh, more so than on paper. Wilf found his first Novice a walk in the park… After a week in the stable after cutting himself, he didn’t get much of a tune up! After the first few fences, he realised Novice was much more fun than 100s, and jumped incredibly well! One tiny mistake Xc at a tiny log which wasn’t where it should be, and the rest of the round was poetry!! Evie posted yet another cool confident clear Xc- this flash little horse is turning into a really cool jumping machine!!! Let’s hop tomorrow goes well for my two first time advanced boys!!! ?

    Yard Manager/ Competition Groom

    Jess joined the team as a trainee back in 2020! Apart from a very short stint spreading her wings, she quickly decided that we really were the family she wanted to be a part of!! I hope Jess will be my Jackie Potts, as she treats the whole team as her own family, and keeps the cogs turning smoothly- even during our tough times!!

    Bryonie is our wonderful Apprentice, and despite her diminutive size, she is definitely mighty!! She shows such commitment to the team and is a such wonderful and critical part of our family.
