The cat that got the cream…

I can definitely say I have two 3* horses in the yard- it has been a wonderful 3 days at Chatsworth, with a few highs and a low or two!! #putyourbuttinthebest @spaldinginternationalsaddlery #flyingwithoutwings 

What I can say, is that horses like Smokie are not ‘one in a million’ horses, he’s a ‘once in a lifetime’ horse! … I feel lucky I’ve had some special ones- but he takes the biscuit!! 

Tiny made his way round his first- and a very stiff- 3* track, it was just a shame that my braking systems failed… and I was jolly pleased to make it home in one piece, with no airbag intervention!!! 🙈 

And Smokie… well, Smokie… as far as both of us were concerned, did the most glorious double clear! Apparently one shoulder was outside a flag, but we’d have only been 12th, so we didn’t complain! 

I feel like the cat that got the cream, and thinking about a couple of very strange, inexplicable occurrences around the lorry, felt very much like Mum was part of the team today!!

    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!
