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

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.
