Horses continue to be great levellers and lots of highs are always brought back to reality with a few lows! I’ve had the devastating news that Otis won’t be ridden again following a recurring suspensary injury. I’m devastated but extremely grateful to have had the pleasure to ride him. He will now be the most beautiful field ornament I could wish for! Over winter my plan is to back my 3yr old Camlough Delphi gelding Tigger. He’s currently lunging and long reigning nicely with tack on and we plan to get on him in the next couple of...read more
How many times have you fell off this year ? I have fell off probably 6 times this year! Once in public at Farley Hall Intermediate at fence 13, you can’t make this shit up! What’s been the best day of eventing for you this year so far? Not a clue, each horse had its own best day for their own reasons. Hera at Chepstow- Double Clear INT-NOV for 6th Sunny at West Wilts – Double Clear INT-NOV for 2nd and Uno 1st BE100 Thargo at Kelsall Hill at 90 went double clear with an improved dressage Biscuit at Homme House firsy Novice...read more
Isn’t it funny how the mind works. You get rid of one fear only to be dragged down by another! Following a bad fall I lost all my confidence in horses and riding, I thank the kids for that, sometimes being a responsible parent sucks. Determined to not give up on my love of riding my mum bought a confidence giver! A typical Welsh D Mare called Winnie, 14’2 hands, 16 years old and extremely tolerant. It took me 10 days to pluck up the courage to sit on her in the garden. 2.5 weeks into having her she was shod, saddle bought and my mum...read more
The AKTON Equestrian Back Pad material was originally designed for the medical community to aid in the prevention and curing of bed sores. The material is not technically a “gel” but a solid viscoelastic polymer that is super soft yet does not leak, flow or bottom out. It has been used successfully in the medical markets for over 40 years world wide, and is now being introduced to the United States equestrian market to offer the same protection to horses. This tissue-like dry polymer assists in reducing shear and evenly...read more

Will this be the next take on the International Velvet Film ? Well, what can I say about this book, laughs from start to finish following the journey of failed business-woman Fran McBride as she learns to ride to try to realise her dreams of becoming a millionaire. This is a book that will suit horsey people and non-horsey people, alike, as Josie King takes us along with Fran as she gets to grips with the horsey world. Those of us who are into riding and eventing get extra laughs at the ‘in’ jokes. There’s...read more
I work with hundreds of riders all over the country from intro to Grand Prix and if I were to calculate the percentage of riders taking care of themselves in terms of physio, massage, fitness training etc and the horse equivalent, I can tell you that the majority of horses get the full works of treatment and very few riders dedicate the same to themselves. We are often injured, we work long hours (usually to pay for the treatments of said 4 legged friends!) often work is physical, we get thrown off – we get back on! We break a...read more

HIRONDELLE DE FRIBOIS B and Aimee Penny finished 17th in the CIC*** at Blair Castle a few weeks ago, Ssangyong Blenheim Palace is now their next step but this time they are entered in the CCI***. The 11yo mare is a mighty 17h and Aimee is not the tallest of riders but they have a super partnership together. Aimee just a mere 22years of age is having a really good season with the majority of her entries into events placing (23 placings/39 runs with 20 of those in the top ten and 9 of those being in the top three!) This mare is not the...read more
I specialise in difficult horses and believe that my keep it simple and common sense approach works well with horses with a difficult past, I have backed some very difficult horses, some of which have gone out into the “real world” and have qualified for regionals in dressage and other disciplines. It is a gift that I have and one that I want to share as I think many horses are written off without a proper chance. I believe that a happy atmosphere makes for a happy horse, that has been my goal and finally, I have found it...read more
