Anticipation was killing me. Hearing that the parcel I had been expecting from Equiclass was waiting for me at home, the day couldn’t go quick enough. I got off the bus and raced towards the house, bursting through the door breathless I looked around and I saw the box...

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...

Today I was doing my first of three C Squad rider tests for BYRDS at Moody Dressage. After spending so much time the night before chiselling the mud from Katrina's "fresh from the bog" coat, she was gleaming and looking smart in her white boots, I felt so proud of her.

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...

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...
