The 2015 eventing season is nearly upon us and I am really looking forward to getting underway! I am delighted to welcome you to my new website where I will fill you in on all my thrills and spills throughout the year.
We have 13 horses fit and well and ready for action – not to mention Beazy and Lulu who are looking forward to seeing all their pals back on the circuit. It has been a long and busy winter and it will be great to get back to the eventing season with the highs and lows that regular competition brings. We tried our hand at straight show jumping this winter at Cavan International and had a couple of fantastic results but nothing meets the buzz of cross country and seeing all the eventing family again.
We are beginning with this season with a bang – a weekend double header of Tyrella and Ballindenisk – one end of the country to the other. We have TP, Jiff and Blackie heading north to Tyrella and Goldie, Mossy and Benji heading to Ballindenisk. A couple of good results would be great to get our seasons off and running and will make the journeys that bit easier. I have my provisional licence now for the HGV so please be careful on the roads!
Very soon, I will be travelling over the pond to Burgham Horse Trials in with Portersize Just a Jiff, BT Border Bandit, and Lowhill Village at Lyons. I plan to make a couple of trips over to the UK early on in the season with the big boys to compete in some CIC3* events. It’s a big season for us and everything is ready for a big one.
I will be aiming all the youngsters for the ‘Stepping Stones to success’ league where I will have 6 babies representing BT Eventers!!
I have some very exciting 6&7 year olds to compete this year who will be aimed for the fantastic new addition to Tattersalls International – the 6&7 year CCI1* class.
I have an early start in the morning for my dressage lessons with Ian Woodhead so I best get to bed. A long winter is over and the excitement of a new season awaits.
