What a party the Canter Club have had this morning Santa and his trusty Chief Elf Jill arrived with a bag full of presents .The turnout was most impressive with some very good outfits .Ponies and riders tinselled up and the judging by Santa very intense .Then the games began Santa's sack race, decorate the xmas tree ,pass the parcel and many more ending up off the ponies backs and singing a very tuneful rendition of the Hokey Kokey. A good time had by all and the ponies on their very best behaviour. I am hoping for some photographs soon for you all to see NOW Roll on Monday for the next one.

Here is the indoor school as it looks now after Dan's efforts earlier this week. Michael has done his stint with the tractor and harrows and
started on the walls but we have a way to go yet. The tree is now back in the school and decorated so we must get another photograph as it really looks good and Jill even got Marie to go mountaineering and get the star on the top .We are now ready for Santa's visit to the Canter Club Xmas Party I hope the ponies remember their antlers so they can pretend they are reindeer for an hour or two it is really getting sooooooooooo exciting .Merry Xmas

I wish to thank Dan Thompson for the work he has done on our indoor school. He promised me he would not interfere with our school rides and he kept his word. He started at 5 30 pm and finished at 11.00am the next morning .What a marvellous gentleman he is to do what he did in the time was unbelievable All he wanted to do was go home and sleep He was shattered. Thank you Dan for a job well done and everybody plus the horses will benefit from your labours..

The school is undergoing minor surgery on Monday night and Tuesday morning so it will be out of commission until Tuesday afternoon next week .Fortunately Ian is here on Monday morning so I will avoid a spat with him as I banish him outside. I do hope it will work and be better for both humans and equines alike.
The Xmas parties are now about full but there is room on Xmas eve and Boxing day rides so you can get a bit of exercise going before and after your Xmas meal.
Tracy is going to have her first ride by request on Monday evening on the 29thDec. I need to know if Melanie and Jane would like to join in Helen Tabois is home and very limited to times available so she would like some sociable company to join her. Please give me a call if interested. Very reasonable price

What a damp miserable day. It was only made better by Ian doing a clinic here this morning. He went off at lunch to join Holly .I will know more of that visit by tomorrow night.
Amy seems to be having a ball in Barbados with my friend Jean the weather here will shock her when she lands back in England Even the rain is warm over there.
I had a very nice visitor to Weelsby this afternoon. After a phone call out of the blue Mary Saunby came back to have a long overdue ride '
The memories were chewed over and she could visualise me riding in the school with Ian sat in front of me when he was only about 16 months old .I really started him off early. Her favourites were Big Silver and May Wee until Ian found her a lovely pony for herself and her daughter Ruth. She had a wonderful ride on Indi who looked after her like a true friend Lovely horse Now we have to get her fit again.
These are the moments I love .To see people who rode with us years age but who can come back as old friends and its as if they have never been away. Thank you Mary for making my afternoon.
I have started a list for Tracy's lesson I will let you know the first date soon

There is an offer on the table that quite honestly is a cracker. Tracy has offered her precious time and undoubted expertise to teach those of you who would like a lesson with her.They will take place on a Monday evening and dates will be given when she is here and you can book your horse with me.They will be run as if you were on a rally and . Numbers will obviously be limited. Please will you let me know of any interest in taking up this offer which if successful could lead on to me letting you hire my horses to attend a full blown clinic with Tracy.. Now is the chance for some of you former riders to have another go and start getting fit again .Tracy is a brilliant coach and instructs for the BHS Look how good her children Amy and Holly are.

Trying to keep up with all going on at the moment wears me out. Amy has gone to stay with my friend in Barbados for a few days and I can bet she is having a wonderful time. Jean had a pony with us for years when she was a child and a stronger and braver rider would be hard to name. She trains dogs now on that beautiful island which has been her home for years. Amy will love her and her home. Holly has taken her place at Carls and from the sound of it is thoroughly enjoying riding the horses there.
There is a chance that there will be a couple of ponies coming which can be leased from here .Any parent thinking about a pony but not really wanting to take the step of buying outright please have a word with me if you wish to keep one here.
Please keep putting your names down for the activities over Xmas before your favourite pony is booked

What a lovely surprise to see Amy on Steve with Carl Hester on the Escape to the country programme this week. It was only for a short while but she had omitted to tell us it would be on so all the more unexpected .and she looked so professional Proud Gran

Jill's Xmas party on Monday 22 Dec is now full but we have already started another one at 2 pm on the same day but with Claire so you need not miss out A really fun packed day for all
Entries are also starting to come in for the Dressage and Dressage with jumping competition on Mon 29thDec entries are £10 a class.
For those of you who are not competition inclined we are riding through the day time and you can book where you have time Xmas eve is a real fun time for riding, also there is a Pony for a day for the little ones with the ever helpful Jill on Tue 30th
Our new recruit JJ has now gained a promotion as his behaviour really improves. He has stopped trying to vacate the school and with his new clip and hair do he is a very bonny fellow. What has come as a very welcome surprise is his jumping ability We all love him and I am sure he will become a very firm favourite
As some of you know Indi belongs to my good friend Denise and she is so pleased to hear of the Indi fan club. He has the most wonderful nature and is such an armchair ride that once clients have ridden him they are hooked. I am so pleased Denise entrusted him to us he has already given a lot of happiness to many people and o boy does he enjoy the fuss made of him.
I have been offered another lad called Simon he will be introduced to the school very soon and we will see what our riders think of him. Grace is hooked already

Last week was very hectic Lewis went off with a chest infection and Jill was on holiday so it was all systems go for those remaining. Holly came home for a couple of days which was great and Amy blew in on a flying visit to pick up gear for her holiday .
Emma went out on Cody to try and qualify for the Para.
championships and much to her disappointment just missed out .A couple more points would have swung it There is one more chance at Durham We all hope she will go for it.
Izzy went out jumping on Cherry and she also took my pony Lucky .I am really pleased with him and Lizzie has him jumping well. He will make some little girl a super pony
We have put out copies of the Xmas calendar today so get yourselves booked in if you want to claim your favourite pony. We have put in a combined training over the holidays as well so you can enter Dressage or dressage with jumping

Very well done Amy at the Your horse Live demonstration given by Carl Hester. To be able to ride there in front of such an audience is mind boggling but to have the rides onDelicato and then Nip Tuck is something so many riders can only dream about. I see on the short video clip you put on face book you earned yourself a bottle of wine for your line of 15 one time changes well done I wish I could have been there .Thank you Carl for giving Amy the opportunities of a lifetime

I really believe that by the end of this week I will have a yard full of horses and ponies with headaches.Nov 5th seems to go on for a long time now and the bangs get louder. I am so pleased with all the ponies their manners and patience have been and are so good under such a barrage of noise. Poor Lizzie is the neurotic one and she has tried so hard to be good I have let her off the evening rides to help her I bet she gives a big sigh of relief when its all over.
If you would like to treat anyone to a ride Group or Private the Xmas vouchers are now ready Please ring or call to order what you would like. Please don't forget the hoodies there is time to get your order in for Xmas as well.
