September 2015

The Summer has flown by. We have just returned from Honefoss Norway where I judged for 3 days at a lovely venue .I was treated to some gorgeous horses to judge and  Gary and I made some great new friends ,I hope we will return before too long.

Our week away to see the European Championships in Aachen was fantastic! Thank you to Jules Ennis for taking care of the yard so well while we were away. We went with Pauline James ( co owner of Florence) and had such a super week. Congratulations to the British team for their Silver medal and Charlotte and Valegro for their Gold.       Thanks to Susie Cumine and friends for their great company and loan of Union Jack flags !!

My term of GB Pony Selector has now begun and I’m really looking forward to the viewing day at Vale View Leicestershire on September 5 th 2015.  Andrew Harris and Pam Bushell are co selectors. Andrew being chief selector.

Ive really enjoyed teaching at the various clinics and senior camps that I’ve done this summer for BD South West and BD Wales . They are great fun and a pleasure to do.

Our horses Fab ( Fidertanz ,De Niro ) and Beau ( Newman ,Florestan)are going well and ready to go out and do some competitions shortly with Katie Bailey. Florence ( Newman ,Florestan) is about to be backed and begin her dressage career!
