Over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of pondering over British Eventing and, in light of the recent price increases for membership and entry fees, I feel now is a good time to air my thoughts.

In domestication we limit their freedom of choice and self selection of their diet. Last month...read more

Dating an equestrian through the eyes of someone who would rather lick their own feet after trudging through a muckheap in a pair of crocs!

We are down to earth, the highs and lows of horses often create grounded people, sometimes literally! But...read more

Where do you start with a such a dramatic event that kept a fast pace throughout the four days! I guess we start by saying that there wasn’t the usual names there this year and it was missing riders like Mark Todd, Andrew Nicholson, Nicola Wilson, Micheal Jung, Harry Meade and Paul Tapner, but in...read more
