Vicky Guy and her horse Marlie have been making the most of the ‘off season’ and practicing their schooling and flatwork!

Susy Stark and Otis scored a PB at a recent dressage competition – 77%! This meant they won the class and then went on to come second in only their third attempt at elementary. The judge even stopped Susy to tell her what a nice boy Otis was!

There is a new guy on the block in Kailin Sharpe’s team. Trevor is a chestnut gelding and is very cute – however he still managed to escape over a 1m door despite his size!

Shannen Payne is back in the saddle having had a fall out eventing on her six year old Harvey. They are now back enjoying some slow hacks – we wish Shannen a good recovery!

Amy Taylor had a fantastic end to the season with My Mate and had wins in all of her classes at her last show. She also now has a new future showing star, Penniment Flying Duke, who has already been out and shows a lot of potential.

Gabby Dichello and Willow have gone from 1’9” – 2’9” classes in under 6 months and are having so much fun together.
