What a super time we had on Saturday at the final of our dressage competition. The yard was very busy from 7o'clock onwards and there was plenty of elbow grease being used as the ponies were not all pristine clean. Many attempted to plait up which really pleased me as it shows pride in appearance.
Di Brown judged impartially and she was very pleased at the smiles she got from the competitors and the varied attempts at a salute brought a smile to the faces of. all of us watching
I am so grateful to Mr And Mrs Lodeman for the sponsorship of the event and the prizes and rosettes are really lovely .Well done to all the winners .I will get my computer literate friends to put me up a list of all the results as soon as possible
The next series will start again soon and I hope we all enjoy ourselves as much as we have this past few months
Before I sign off this post I wish to thank from the bottom of my heart Kevin. Without his help we could not have had such a success with our competition days Also a very big thank you to my staff for helping well beyond the call of duty God Bless you all ..

I have decided to retire Pepsi from the riding school and let him go to a home where he will be loved and treated as he should be. When he first came to us he was meant for Amy to ride but as she outgrew his capabilities I pinched him for the riding school. He was and is a very good jumper and hunting and x country were always what he loved. He is going to a home where he will hack and have no pressure put on him .I love this pony he is a survivor and does not suffer fools easily. I have not known many ponies who can so utterly switch off if he feels like it but if ridden the right way he is capable of giving his rider absolute joy. Shanean already has Bob and Pepsi will join him tomorrow I know she will look after him very well.

'Star' -
8 year old, 14.2hh, chestnut mare.
Super all rounder - schooling well on the flat, jumps, 100% safe hacking out in road or across fields. Would do well showing as she has very flashy natural paces.
Star is a lovely natured mare that is now ready to go out and compete in any discipline. She is a little nervous around the farrier but has progressed a lot whilst being with us.
She is a quick learner and will make someone a brilliant pony.
Pm me for more details - or call 01472 355562 - 07852504041.

I am overwhelmed by the love you all had for Grant .Thank you for all the lovely comments and it shows how much happiness and on occasions frustration a genuine school horse or pony can bring to so many people. My late sister Jean always liked her school horses to have a lot of character and I can remember trying to ride some of the more exuberant ones she recruited and thinking what do we do with this one will it ever be a good school horse and Jean proving yes it would /. You can only teach good riding on decent willing animals and my sister taught me a lot about that.
I have just gained a new recruit called j jay. Hopefully to help Saffy out. What a sweet little horse I am sure you will all love him He is not a Grant but in his own way will be just as valuable an asset to us

What a sad day for Weelsby and the Cleethorpes and Grimsby R>D>A>.We are so sorry to lose Grant He has been such a lovely boy to have in the yard and he has taught so many people moves they only dreamed of doing. A character who could catch you out if you didn't pay attention but could make you feel really good when things were right. He was always the first one to say Good Morning to me and the last one to say Good Night.as my bedroom window overlooked his stable.
I have been here long enough now to have said a fond farewell to many beautiful horses and ponies but it doesn't make it any easier loving each one as part of my family .God Bless you Grant and thank you.

What a terrible change in the weather just when we are starting to clip some of the horses and ponies. I hope it all blows away quickly .What a surprise arrived here on Sunday. Michaels Mother and Father drove up here with a trailer carrying not a horse but a beautiful hand crafted hut Kevin the ever helpful friend he is helped Michaels dad to put it up. What a help it will be on inclement days. And how super to have such a clever dad Thank you .

Interesting week-end. So nice to have both the girls home even if I only managed a fleeting glimpse of them but that's better than nothing. Amy and Michael took videos of all the horses and ponies we have for sale It took them quite a while as there are four or five ready for the off in the yard at the moment
Quite a lot of movement this morning ;..Georgia went out on Bee and came home with a 1st and 2nd her confidence is really growing now .Izzy and Cherry Pie gained a 1st and a 3rd and Kate Chloe la la and the family went out to another venue and won 1st 2nd and also gained some minor placing. I love to see their faces when they get home specially if they feel they have done well .It makes all the homework worth the time spent.
