Pre-season training

xcsignThe pre-season training is in full swing and so far going according to plan. All my lovely horses have now arrived back ready for the oncoming season; they are feeling full of excitement and some are being rather cheeky. Hopefully the dark, bleak, uninspiring morning and nights are coming to an end soon. I would just like to say a big thankyou to my team for their hard work at home during the winter keeping everything in order.

The team and myself have been show jump and dressage training over the winter to work on any of our or our horses weak areas. We had 11 horses x-c schooling at Somerford’s fantastic arena x-c last week which was a busy day but great fun for us all. The horses had their first canter work session at the beautiful Broxton Hall gallops yesterday, the venue is well maintained, the surface is always good going no matter the weather, and their hill on the gallops is great for the horses fitness! We are all off Arena Eventing this weekend at Fieldhouse equestrian centre which is conveniently local to us and holds a variety of competitions for all levels.

Before the season begins I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my fantastic owners, sponsors and team for their ongoing support; without them, none of what I do would be possible. So a big thankyou to Amerigo, Elvin and Co, Hit Air, Protexin Equine Premium, Kan Teq and Team SPILLERS®
