We are back to earth with a bump today .Horses to school and groom and Spring Cleaning beginning in earnest. The usually very well dressed and very smart Michael looked as if he had developed a bad bout of measles by lunch time today as he literally attacked a block of stables with a paintbrush .He was just as enthusiastic the other day with the power washer I must admit he got the stables painted in record time Fran called in and was amazed at what was getting done as she was the great decorator before she left us for pastures new.
Cameo has arrived home again after her valuable stint at horse sitting so we will have some very happy children when they see her.
Amy is hoping to be home for the weekend the 3rd and 4thof May please text her if you would like a lesson with her and don.t forget it is the clear round jumping on the Monday 5thMay
Now to make the list out for more paint got to keep Michael busy as he is off power grooming abroad on Sunday for a week.

What a lovely week-end we are having at Weelsby With the news coming in from Amy and Holly
Amy has been in touch and has won a 5year old Badminton qualifier today on Carl Hester's Ekitof . What makes it so much better for me is that she has been trusted to ride the horse at it's first show this year while Carl is away at the World Championships. There is a wonderful back up team there and it obviously works . I am a very proud Grannie tonight .Wish I was close enough to hug them both

What a happy sight this morning from my upstairs window, Little girls in brightly coloured onesies laughing in the yard as they got their ponies ready for the Great Easter Egg party. I got my phone out to take a photo only to find the battery flat, typical, fortunately Di has taken some very good picts of the children on the ponies and Jill [in a very flamboyant onesie and her hair in bunches]a sight not to be missed had some snaps taken of them all snoozing on the grass. I must admit the enjoyment of the children was infectious and these days are so worthwhile putting on just to see how the children enjoy themselves.
Oh!!!! HAPPY DAYS !!!!!!!!!

I have really enjoyed watching busy people very small ,small ,medium and large working in the yard today,. Ponies have been brushed, Feet scrubbed and tails washed . The children loved it and the ponies really enjoyed all the attention they were getting while the sun was out. I do hope the weather lasts a few more days or rain tomorrow will wash all our hidden Easter Eggs away. Get the cameras out for photos of all the onesies.
The jumping evening was a great success Grace Georgia and Izzy enjoyed the outing and Sam was over the moon with her horse ,It jumped well for her and was a very good boy with Lewis,

We had a very good day on Saturday even though it turned so cold .The standard in the various tests is really improving and next time I will put test 12 back in for the riders who are ready to go on from 7 but are not quite ready for the novice test. I am really impressed by the parents who turn out to help the little ones groom and plait up .The ponies and children look really super and everyone is so encouraging .
A list of winners and points will be posted soon.
A big thank you again to Kevin who is the most marvellous organiser, and can keep even me on the ball. And---- another thank you to Di and Lisa.
I have discovered over the many years I have been here, in house competitions can really help the riders improve horsemanship and more important confidence but if you don't have the backing on the ground it cannot keep happening .I am so lucky or blessed to have wonderful people who are willing to help and do the things for me which I now find more difficult. Thank you

Hunt The Egg Dress Code Onesies and riding Hat

Thursday 17th April at 10 30 am £ 25.00

.Calling any child who fancies themselves as a budding Sherlock Homes you can choose a partner [a pony] and set off on a great Egg hunt .Hopefully you will all have found your egg by lunch time. I am hoping Jill hides them well but not so well they cannot be found. The egg is yours to eat, one a rider ,and a special prize for the most flamboyant onesie.
I have had a very enjoyable day with son Ian Arriving at 7.00am he has had quite a long clinic with very enthusiastic and dedicated riders. At a risk of repeating myself we do have some very talented riders in this area and Ian fully agrees with me.
Now to try and get a good nights sleep to get ready for the invasion of little people for the activity day tomorrow
Love it
