"Hi Animalife! I would like to introduce my new pony, Sandy (pictured top left) which I have on full loan until I find my new project. So far I have had him 3 weeks - we are getting on very well! On the 26th June we went to our first competition together. We got 1st in the 80cm and and 2nd in the 90cm. On Saturday the 2nd of July we went to West Wilts Equestrian Centre and got 2nd in the 85cm (just .8th of a second difference and in a very competitive section) and 1st in the 95cm (winning by 5 seconds!). On Sunday we then went to Kings Sedgemore but unfortunately missed the 80cm class. However we went into the 90cm with a double clear and winning with a 10 second difference between 1st and 2nd place! Over the moon with how Sandy is going and hopefully this continues:)will update you again shortly!"
"Lady (pictured top righ) and myself have been very busy recently, we have been doing a lot of showjumping and Lady is proving that she loves her jumping! Although xc is still both of our favourites but she is showing scope and promise over fences now! At our last showjumping competition we came 3rd in the 80cm and 2nd in the 70cm. We also went to Callington Horse Show and missed out on getting a trophy by 2 seconds which put us in 4th, hopefully we are going to do our first one day event together in August as Lady's dressage has got better!"
"I gave birth to my baby son at the very end of February & I have now slowly been getting my youngster (& myself) back in into the swing of things (pictured bottom left). Have been doing lots of schooling, both on the flat & jumping. We went out to our first riding club dressage competition a few weeks ago & came home with a red rosette & 73% in the prelim. Bean then excelled himself on Sunday; we won the 1st prelim with over 77% & then were 2nd in the other prelim with over 71%!"
"This is my new horse barley puzzle aka Jazz (pictured bottom right). Weve been together just over a month now and last Sunday at her first ridden show she gained her first 3 clear showjumping rounds. So proud of her. Hopefully she has a bright future ahead of her!"
