Two very happy young ladies arrived back today with very big smiles on their faces .Izzy and Cherry Pie went out jumping and came 1st in her class with the fastest time in the jump off and Little Chloe fortunately getting over chicken pox in time to compete took LALA out and had a 1st in the Shetland and miniature young handler a 2nd and two 3rds One 3rd was in the leading rein and I am impressed with Kate and Chloe because little legs has to compete against pure Welsh ponies and quality lead reins and to get placed is really great. Well done Izzy and Chloe
Now to Wednesday the 1st April and the jumping lesson with Kate ,.The response has been great and as a result we have had to split it into two separate rides The first ride starts at11.00am and runs until12 30pm
riders are Lily Cox, Alexis, Josh ,Ellie Jane, Bethany, Hannah, And Charlotte'.
The second ride starts at1.00pm to2.30 pm
Riders Dillon Anya Taya, Maddie ,Maya, Molly And Yenna.
We hope you have all remembered which horse/pony you have booked and we hope you will have a go at helping get it ready. Please take note of the time of the rides we have split them so it is safer and you all have a better lesson
Please also let your friends know if they do not read our blogs

It has been a very busy time trying to get the paddocks harrowed and ready to fertilise .the wind blew just at the right time and dried them out so we could get the tractor onto the grass without causing damage and Kevin's son Alec has made a good job of it Thank you young man you have done us a very great favour.
I have let Holly take our lovely welsh pony Lucky back to her stables Izzy has ridden him so well and got him out and jumping courses. I think they have both benefited from each other and it is now time for Lucky to go. I have let her have Star instead and Amy is very happy at how the partnership is progressing if Izzy can keep on as she is doing we will make a very good young pony rider of her of her in time .
The activities at Easter have been filling up but there are still some places on the pony for a day on Wed 8th April and there are a couple of ponies left waiting for little jockeys on the Easter Egg Party on Thursday 2nd April.
Tracy is having a ladies ride on Monday 30th at 6 o'clock so please let me know if you would like to take part .She really takes good care of you and everyone has a good time.
I would also like to congratulate the staff on how they are managing the yard this past few weeks .They are happy and smiling and as a result all the horses and ponies are happy as well Thank you girls you are great and make my life so much easier .

Holly is going to be home this weekend and on Saturday she will give some jumping lessons .Please get in touch with her if you want to take part.
Smoky Jo has had a short holiday while his back has been sorted out by Yasmin what a brilliant job she has done .He is now a very happy horse and will be back in work by the weekend or next week .He is loving the saddle I have found for him if he could talk he would have shouted out Yippee today as he tried out a canter with grace aboard
Izzy took Cherry and Lucky jumping on Sunday and came home with a clutch of rosettes I am so pleased with this young lady she is making a good jumping pony out of Lucky and he gets better each time he goes out The icing on the cake for her this weekend has been her selection for the junior jumping team representing the North Lincs Riding Club on Cherry Pie How proud I am of them I bought Cherry for the riding school but she has had far more excitement in her life since Izzy took her on loan I love following her exploits Don't grow any more this year Izzy..
Holly had her first outing with Luke last Sunday and she did a double clear with a few time faults and in a very strong section gained 7th we are all thrilled that all went well.

My day has been in two parts .Half super the other I want to forget but as well as Amy the highlight of today has been Kate fetching Samuel for his first official lesson with Jill and our favourite boys pony Berti .Super memories of a very tiny Kate having lessons with me at this age lets hope he has the amazing talent of his mother and we have a budding new superstar .

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
