February 2019

I’m back baby! You may have seen I have a new horse from a couple of video’s I’ve posted over the past week, so I’d like to introduce you all to Midget aka Santo Domingo(No I didn’t choose his name, I’m just extremely unlucky in the name department with any horse I have) He is…

December 2018

2018 is now coming to an end, leaving us all in a reflective mood, which is always good in terms of evaluating your progress. As you know, I’ve been quiet on social media lately, and not written any blogs, but I think now is the perfect time to reflect, and share it with you. If…

September 2018

Similar to August, this month has been very slow in terms of progression as I have only been riding in walk, which has been extremely frustrating in the sense that everything feels like it’s all falling apart after how amazing he was going back in July, which ultimately leads to questioning whether we will ever…

August

This months blog has been really difficult, because of how much I want to write, which is why it’s taken me longer to post! You may have read in last months blog that Alfie had a couple of weeks off after feeling a bit tight, and waiting for Leonie to recover from her fall from…

July 2018

I think it’s safe to say, July has been a challenging month for us! You may have seen one of my recent Facebook posts saying we had to withdraw from Bishop Burton International last week, which was absolutely gutting! One thing I will say about Equestrian Sport, is it never ceases to amaze me how…

June Blog

June has been a very busy month for us! You may have read in previous blogs over the past few months that the ultimate goal for 2018 is to go to selection trials for World Class in December, and hopefully get back on to the team. With that goal in mind, the pressure has been…

May Blog

May has been the month for change! Alfie and I are now at the stage where we really trust each other. Feeling safe is obviously the number one priority for any horse and rider combination before getting down to business in training. So now that we do feel safe, It’s given Leonie and I the…

April Blog

April has been one of those months that has it’s ups and downs. Theres a lot that has changed since last months blog. At the start of the month, Prince left to embark on an exciting new journey within his competition career, after being sold to the Hong Kong Para Team. I’m really excited for…

March

March has been a fairly slow month for us, as it’s been all about crossing over from Prince and beginning training with Alfie to develop that all important relationships we need to work as a successful partnership when we start competing together in the future. If I’m being honest, I’ve found it extremely difficult to…

February Blog

There’s so much that’s happened this month, I’m actually struggling to think how I can fit it all in! One thing I didn’t tell you in last months blog is that Leonie and I went to see a couple of horses! One of which we completely fell in love with! So meet Alfie, the new…

January Blog

The first month of 2018 has started on a high! After a month off, Prince has came back feeling better than ever. On the 8th January, Mandy came to see Prince and have a chat with Mum, Leonie and I about what we’re going to do when the loan agreement ends in May. After a…

December Blog

I’ve not ridden at all this month due to Prince having his tooth removed last month and allowing it time to settle down… That and the fact that dreaded snow hit the West Midlands pretty bad the other week, so with that in mind and with the New Year upon us, this months blog is…
