April 2019

We’ve had Midget for just over 8 weeks now, and when you take a step back and look at the bigger picture it’s amazing how much progress we have all made in such a short space of time as a whole team. If you’ve read the last couple of blogs, then you will know the…

March 2019

Every time we buy a new horse, we always say we’re going to take before and after photos so we can see how much they have changed. When you’re working on something day in day out, it makes it difficult to take a step back and see all the minute improvements that have been made…

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…
