With the end of the event season approaching fast it has been time for the more experienced horses to compete at the three day events they have been working towards all year. With my young ones turned out to soak in all they have learnt this year, the last few weeks have been all about Emily! We've been to some wonderful 3 day events starting with the Young rider Europeans in Poland where Em and Loxley were part of the Gold medal winning British Team... whoop whoop!! Then it was Blenheim, Ballindenisk (Ireland), and Osberton with some thrilling results (see Em's FB page/twitter for more news on those events!) The last and main event Emily has in her sights is Pau CCI**** with Brookleigh, at the end of October. It has been her dream for many years to ride at 4 star level and it is now imminent...so exciting!
Shadow Boxer has been sold, going to Holland to a talented junior rider.
Snuggy Hoods came to my yard for a photo shoot to get new pics and video clips to help promote their wonderful products.
I went to Burghley, sadly not to ride, but to do an official course walk and sell my book. So we now have a couple of weeks at home to catch up before heading off to France for the last event of the season.
