SLADES FARM CROSS COUNTRY CLINIC – September 8th and October 20th

I hope everyone has had a fabulous summer and your horses have been going well. Now that the weather is cooling off and we have been lucky to have some rain to soften the ground, the riding conditions are perfect. Having been competing throughout the season I do find it hard sometimes to ’train’ specifically, as…

Tattersalls CCI3-L Report

I think Tattersalls has to be the best event that we have competed at so far! Whilst it wasn’t the result for Solo that we were hoping for we both learnt a lot about each other and hopefully come out richer for it next time. Whilst Freddie travelled very well and settled into the fantastic…
