In today's blog I want to tell you about Katrina's first experience with a massage therapist Karen Allott of Allott RT Equine Massage, and share what I learned from watching and listening on how to keep your horse comfortable. Firstly did you know that Dressage horses...

As I walked onto the yard with my tack the first thing mum said to me was;
 

"Katrina just pooped on my head! I was picking out her hinds and she just dropped it on me”
 

I nearly died. I tried so hard not to laugh that my face went bright red, and the need to laugh only...

So, fully registered with British Dressage it was time for us to go to our first proper dance. In the warm up Katrina felt tense. I did what Becky and Hannah taught me, bending inside and out, using transitions and changes of direction keeping Katrina supple and gettin...

Katrina had never been show jumping away from home before so I was a bit apprehensive, but more excited to see what she would do. Height isn't so much an issue but she is still pretty spooky with fillers so we chose some smaller classes because the fences are less lik...

It was dark when we arrived for my lesson with Hannah and the school was deserted as I led Katrina down to the mounting block.  “Hellooo!” a voice rang from the darkness, “Hannah can’t make it tonight so you’ve drawn the short straw and got me” Becky Moody laughed as...

Top of the Tweeds

 

I couldn't wait to get home to see my brand new Tottie tweeds!  I knew they would be lovely, but when I actually saw them in real life was when I was hit by how gorgeous these tweeds actually are.


The Moss Zeena Tweed Blazer is simply stunning, The br...

Mum was a bit anxious when we left for my next lesson with Hannah Moody, it was getting foggy and the road to there is twisty, narrow and dark so we left early and made really good time on the motorway.  That changed when we turned off and started to wind our way thro...

It was a dismal afternoon when we set out for the BYRDS Equitation day. I was feeling excited, and nervous when I mounted because we were to be riding in front of two BYRDS coaches. Today wasn't about how well your horse is going, these coaches were focusing on riders...

After a super early morning and long journey, I could barely contain my excitement when Olympia finally came into view. After hearing tales of Olympia from mum since I was young, it was like a dream come true to finally be there!  Upon entering the building, I was ast...

It’s important that Katrina isn’t asked to just do dressage schooling all the time, she’s a clever girl who tries hard so it’s nice to do something different to keep her fresh and just have fun, which is why I have regular jumping lessons.  Today I was having my first...

As usual mum and I were running late when we arrived for my regular lesson with Hannah Moody. Big, black, clouds pressed down from the sky and th...

I've never really been a big fan of equestrian themed books.  You can normally count on finding me with my nose buried in a dystopian or vampire novel, but when I was sent a copy of The Glory by Lauren St John I decided to give it a go. After all, there are only so ma...

I originally fell in love with these breeches from the very first moment I saw them, I adored the pattern and how different they looked from other breeches out there.  I already had the Maven jacket in Berry and Katrina has the show rug in the same colour so I was re...
