It is holiday time for some of the ponies and Emma Wells has taken Samwise off for his break The news is he is thoroughly enjoying himself and eating and sleeping very well. The next one will be Cody it is nice for them to have a break it keeps them fresh. Magic is now starting to come back into work and her fans will be delighted when she gets back into proper work.
Amy and Holly are hoping to get back again this weekend they have a poorly Granddad and want to see him. They may have time to do a few lessons if you want to get in touch.

What a lovely day we had on Monday The ponies looked great more competitors than ever remembered the tests so we did not have to call out all day and the standard improved yet again. It was a win win situation all round. I will get my fabulous helpers to put the scores up and the latest league placing's. I think it is getting quite exciting now as we head towards the final We will let you know the date as soon as we have decided the best time to have it
Talking about finals we are heading towards out trip to support Jill and I must ask those of you who are going if you could give me your money for the coach .We need to sort it out so we know how big a bus we need.

From the riding school's point of view we have had the most rewarding four days. Lewis is completely shattered but justifiably very pleased with the results of his teaching this week. I judged the dressage tests today and I found the improvement in all the children very impressive .They all tried so hard to show me how good they are getting that we had on occasion a bit of over-riding .I would sooner see that than a don't really care attitude .A very big thank you to all who took part for giving me such pleasure in judging your tests.
Thank you Lewis for giving everyone such a good time and listening to the parents it has been well worth the money they all agree your teaching has been first class. Also. a little bird told me your cooking and culinary expertise is not bad either, at least nobody starved. Thank you everyone for your help this week.

What a perfect birthday present my grand-daughter Holly has given me she has won the selection trial at Somerford and has been picked to go to Portugal in the British young rider team in September. I think I have got the time and country correct but I am so bursting with pride and love for her I cannot help but be excited. Amy is following the news closely and is keeping in touch. My husband Allan is very pleased as well as he has a stake in Luke and follows his progress very keenly.

Jill has gone home today on a high. Her little band of "campers
have had a very good four days and I judged their riding test today and I was very impressed .The enthusiasm of the children was infectious and they were a pleasure to watch. Well done Jill.
Now for the big one when the campers proper arrive for Lewis to take.
They are going under canvas so we are all praying for good weather My ruby and Rosie continue to thrive and they are really keeping me on my toes. They have decided to be andrex adverts and if not careful I am finding toilet rolls pulled out all-over the yard. OH dear I should have thought about the mischief puppies can get into before having two. Getting them to lead was as bad as titting a naughty foal .Ruby actually howled at me in temper but all is happy and peaceful now and they lead. Good girls.

It is back to near normal again today. Jill has another little group of children doing a four day course and there was great activity in the yard this morning as Ian had a very busy clinic on the go and Lewis had all the young ones to contend with so Jill had her work cut out .As usual she managed beautifully and everything ran smoothly
. I am still reliving the super weekend I had and the e mails and phone calls I have received have been wonderful .I am so pleased that so many people had such a good time but the friends of Weelsby are like that Very loyal friendly and a pleasure to know.
I had a walk round the yards today with Kevin's Mum and we were trying to sort out where to put the super new plants I have been given .The wind has played havoc with the hanging baskets but all but two were rescued with some TLC.To make things look nice really takes time and to keep it looking really good takes dedication .I just wish I was able to do more .
Don't forget the dressage on the 25th and the clear round jumping on the 30thAug and there are a few seats left on the . Burghley trip onthe7thSept.to support Jill

I would like to say a huge thank you to Lisa for helping organise my birthday party which Ian insisted we all celebrate this year. Our good friend Kevin did endless running around and Tracy made a wonderful job 0f the decorations. Thank you to all my wonderful staff who made the yard look great.
The bar ,the disco and the hog roast went down well and the rain stayed away. The cake is unbelievable
What was the highlight of my day was the company. Friends and relations came from far and wide Spain Germany,. Ireland and Barbados. Nearer home we had friends from many different parts of the country who all came together play catch-up .Ian's memory was brilliant and he remembered just about everyone
Pauline Strawson who as a little tiny four year old was my very first pupil spoke some very lovely words which made me quite emotional. Thank you very much Pauline you turned out a very good rider which was a feather in my cap. I have received beautiful cards and gifts for which I thank you all very much and I will treasure them.
I could not have imagined in my wildest dreams an event I was dreading could have turned out to be one of the happiest days of my life .Bless you all for helping me celebrate it
