The weather was so kind to us on Saturday for the first of this years Dressage Competition. It stayed dry!!!!!.It was also nice early morning on Sunday as I watched Marie help Izzy get Cherry ready to take out to her first show jumping competition under rules and we all were very pleased she won a second prize Good girls Izzy and Cherry.
What a stinking afternoon then set in A big thank you to all the clients who turned up and to Claire for taking them.
The Dressage on Saturday was very good and even though we have all new tests the Judges and the spectators thought the standard has improved so a very big well done to all those taking part. Some of the ponies were on their toes but that made the riding so much better as nobody lost their nerve and all the tests were completed. So come on and lets have even more of you having a go
A big thank you to the judges ,writers. helpers .and the willing Mums who are even learning how to tack up the little ones ponies. and even having a laugh and a joke as they cart the saddles about. There is a lot to admire about the mum's who help .We really need them Thank You xx

It has taken me back a few years today as Ian took a ride for me . The look on the faces of the riders said it all .A very good workout. excellent tuition and help for everyone. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and has promised he will do it again. He was very pleased with the standard of riding and we will carry on with these more advanced rides because Tracy will take them fortnightly on a Monday evening at 6 pm and Ian will do one when he is free.
The feedback has been wonderful and I must thank Ian for staying on after his clinic had finished
It was also a treat to see Holly this weekend and to find out all her plans. There are new horses for her to ride as well as our favourite Luke.
What a good first outing this year for Amy Wins and qualifiers already in the bag Very well done Amy xx

I am so pleased to see Ian home again after his week skiing .You do all like the danger sports don't you I ice skated for many years but I never grasped how to put on the brakes so every time I wanted to stop I ran into the barrier I never risked trying to ski as I could not visualise how to stop .No reins on a ski /////
Half term will be here soon so there will be an activity day or pony for a day for any young riders wanting to have a go .I am alsotrying to arrange jumping lessons .as quite a few of you have requested one. Please let me know if there is any interest.

Amy and Holly have set off on their winter holiday .Actually its part of holly's 21st birthday present and Amy has gone to keep her safe which to me is quite amusing .I don.t really know who should be the minder out of the pair of them.
The Dressage Tests have been sorted and all that remains are the entries to come in and which horse or pony you would like to ride .Please remember they are limited to how many tests they do
Tracy's lesson is going ahead on Monday 2nd Feb. Sam called in today and booked herself in .How lovely to see her with her son and daughter beautiful children .and so well behaved. The little girl is starting riding lessons in Feb. and so it continues Grannies. Mums Dads and children I really believe we must be doing something right to have so many generations keep coming.Long may it continue and thank you all for your friendship through the years.

I am very sorry the ride was cancelled tonight but Tracy was in no fit state to take it as she had to put one of her labs to sleep today and after all the time she had spent looking after it she was so gutted I sent her home. The ride has been postponed until 2nd Feb so you can put your name down for that one .Just let me know.
Clair's first week's course has only one place left .It will suit anyone on a 5 15 pm standard ride but she has the chance of a second week later in Aug so if you don't want to be disappointed you can book on that one.
Jill and Lewis' four days are not filled yet so you can talk to them about availability.
We have had some pleas for help from some of the dedicated mums who wish to help their children on competition days and we would like to know when and if you have any spare time when you can come and learn how to plait and tack up. All the staff would be delighted to help you as I know some of the children are really too small to do it themselves.
Talking about the Dressage Competition we are starting again in Feb. The tests are being altered and I think you will really enjoy the change .Your instructors will take you through them on your rides so you will see how easy they are but it will give you more to think about I hope you will all be giving me your entries after this coming weekend
Now a query Would any of you adult riders out there be interested in a three day course for yourselves maybe in the summer holidays. you can groom .tack up Play games hack have flat and jumping lessons in other words have a great time .Let us know as we have to have enough partaking to make it viable Why should the kids have all the fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
