Sidesaddle Clydesdale!

Well, I’m not even sure where to start! What a rollercoaster of a month. Tigger settled in well at the new yard, he is such a friendly and easy going chap who enjoys making friends in the field, but sadly our plans for the month have been well and...

August? AuGONE!

I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by! August came and went in a flash. It was a reasonably busy month to include #HoneychopHenrysBigBlairAdventure, some end of season showing and a yard move too. The beginning of the month found us at Puddledub show, travelling with Tigger’s...

Did you know there’s no wine available at Pony Club Camp?

I imagined to attend Pony Club Camp surrounded by parents wearing tweed and corduroy, avocado snacks, kale salads (basically die hard Waitrose shoppers) and with children on HOYs worthy ponies, expecting to be judged whilst Henry and I rocked up in the 4×4 which consumes more fuel than I...

Show season in full swing!

It’s been an incredible month, Tigger has exceeded all expectations. Bearing in mind this is a horse that had been out of work for 9 months when I brought him home, that I had only sat on briefly for 10 minutes in a piddly section of garden! He has...

The Pony Club Mum

Well it hasn’t been the greatest start to the season with my horse being written off with his Suspensory, he is restricted to walking on the roads only which is about as much fun as playing with barbed wire! However,  luckily I have a mini-me and I can live...

Smiles all round in June!

What a month, dominated by the Royal Highland Show, I have been mega busy. Tigger certainly did not disappoint at the RHS, where we went with no expectations and came home with a 3rd and a 5th place!! I actually cried when the judge gave me my 3rd place...

Mid-Season abrupt halt!

Well at present my season has come to an abrupt halt. As mentioned in last month’s blog Sunny appeared to have some lameness in his near fore. Vet has diagnosed it as Suspensory problems. He has had 2 weeks of cold hosing and walking. A further vet visit suggesting...
