Summer Fun....

Aramis. T gave me  fantastic ride at the Bury Farm Regionals. We scored 71.67% in a very hot Inter I class to finish second overall to the very talented fellow Blue Chip rider Natalie Kayal and DHI Homerun. 
Blue Chip Rider top 2!

 I was over the moon with Merri's performance, the trot work was expressive, powerful and harmonious and the canter pirouettes were a highlight for me in the canter.

 We were lucky enough to receive a Wildcard to the British Dressage National Championships in September where Merri put in another cracking performance. Unfortunately there were a few blips which were down to some tension but I was very pleased regardless.  We scored a respectable 66% which had so much potential. Merri was a total pleasure at the show and our partnership is growing in strength.

BD Nationals 2016- what a good girl!

Affinity Bay has been coming along in his training. Judy Harvey and Ian Woodhead have really been helping me develope his ability to collect further and we have been doing some exciting work towards piaffe and passage.
He made his Inter I debut and his most recent score is 67% to win a PYO FEI at Bury Farm much to my delight! 

Not to be out done by the advanced horses.... Galanci RS made her debut in straight BD Novice classes and scored a whopping 78% & 71% to win both her classes! Exciting future ahead of the lovely Tilly!
Our latest project 3yo Ivanne by Eastwood (Ampere) x Goodtimes has also been making progress.... She has been backed now and putting on lots of condition with turnout and a daily dose of Blue Chip Balancer. She seems to have a good nature and is picking things up very quickly... her life has really turned around. Not long ago she was feral in a field in Holland!
