Sadly, today we had it confirmed that Hero has damaged a tendon in his right foreleg and will retireπŸ¦„πŸ˜’

We purchased Hero in a shocking state from a dealer in 2017 when Pea Pod was side-lined after having a bone chip removed from his hock. We competed successfully together for two seasons at Novice level winning the Best Northumbrian Rider trophy at Belsay and competing in the Scottish and Northern Championships where Hero posted the only cross-country round inside the time.

Hero was legendary for his speed. Some of my fondest memories of him are cruising past the field out hunting when everyone is flat out and Hero is only in third gear πŸŽπŸ’¨

He is truly a gentleman and I think it is fitting that his last competitive cross country outing was filling Chloe with confidence as he took her round the Eventer’s Derby at Warwick Hall before her first affiliated outing with Charlie 😍

I am sad that he and I will no longer experience the adrenalin rush from riding at speed together, but Hero’s second favourite pastime is comatose-style sleeping in the long grass and now he will have plenty of time to do just that🐴🌱😴

Hero by name, Hero by natureπŸ¦„πŸ’•

I remember the day he arrived...I will miss charging up the hill at full speed with Archie trying to catch him. Happy retirement Hero you've now joined my club! πŸ₯°

What a shame, but at least he’ll retire in comfort

lucky boy to have you find him, and to have a lovely retirement home with you

Hero was the best to take up the river ride, i think he’ll even miss going for a gallop!! He’ll have a happy retired life ❀️

HeroπŸ₯° my first experience riding an event horse and what a ride it was. Still makes me laugh out loud πŸ˜†

Aww so sorry.

Ahhh bummer, so sorry Helen. Happy retirement hero ❀️

So sorry to hear poor Hero but he couldn't wish for a better place to retire xx❀️

Sorry to hear he’s picked up an injury but what a retirement he will have.

Such a pity, so sorry to hear this news. You certainly turned his career around when he arrived with you. I am sure he will relish retirement x

Such lovely words Helen - and no where better for his long retirement !

So sad to hear this.... but very happy that he has had such a marvellous time in his years with you and will continue to have a wonderful and loving home at Redesdale Equestrian πŸ€—

Sorry to hear that. Lovely memories & fabulous photos. I hope he enjoys his retirement x

Another successful weekend eventing… this time a weekend of debutants at Warwick Hall in CumbriaπŸ˜€πŸ‘

Cruise ran in his first Novice (1.10m) making it all seem very easy and finishing in sixth place. It’s a big step from 100 to Novice - more then the 10cm on paper, so super pleased he made the grade. Now we just need to keep it up! πŸ€©πŸ¦„

Baby Roo bear contested her first ever affiliated event and finished fourth in the 80cm class. Bless her, she really is hard work but very diligently does everything asked of her, if a little slowly!! πŸ¦„πŸ’•πŸ˜‚

And to Chloe also doing her first ever BE event with the inimitable Charlie. A very complex horse, Charlie has not had the best week in the run-up to this weekend, refusing to jump pretty much anything at home including everything he’s jumped before, sending all our hopes of a successful run to the depths of dispair and leaving poor Chloe’s confidence in tatters. However, giving Charlie a superb ride, beyond her years, Chloe nailed the dressage performing a beautiful and relaxed (not a attribute often associated with Charlie) test, completed the showjumping with just one refusal and associated time faults and then breezed round the cross country to complete in 16th place. An incredible achievement for a young girl on a difficult horse in her first β€˜real’ competition.πŸ¦ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ­οΈβ­οΈβ­οΈβ­οΈβ­οΈ

Snippets of the cross country in order - Cruise, Roo, Charlie. Love seeing the contrast between the more experienced Cruise and baby Roo πŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ’•

Another fantastic event from the Cumbria Horse Trials team πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘

Yesterday we headed to Leicestershire for some jump-technique training with the world leading performance coach, Caroline Moore. Caroline’s eye for detail and the facilities at Vale View make the 10-hour round trip well worth it and we try to get here every 6-8 weeks.

The boys were fab, Cruise is fired up ready for his first Novice and it was a great tune up for Pea Pod mid-season πŸ¦„βœˆοΈπŸ’•

Great jumping. We used to live near there. Totally spoilt with Vale view, Arena UK, Eland Lodge, HOYS etc all within 45mins, it was a bit of a shock coming up here.

Cruise has fantastic potential for a young lad πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Oh my life, that was exciting to watch, so many twists and turns and not much thinking time in between as the jumps came thick and fast. All looking fab and what a wonderful facility x

Wow both looking amazing! 😍


What fabulous training place xx

Looks absolutely fab. ❀️❀️


What a fabulous place......

This looks amazing!! Both horses are looking fab! Xx

Fantastic jumping, best ever. Don't think you could find better horses. Good riding too. Thanks to the camera person.

Super Pods flying in the Intermediate at Hopetoun, Edinburgh yesterday. A 25 dressage, an improved showjumping round and clear xc meant we came home happy again. Can’t ask much more from my gorgeous boy πŸ˜€πŸ¦„πŸ’•

Next stop, back to Warwick Hall in Cumbria where we have a weekend of firsts…. Cruise steps up to Novice (1.10m), Chloe and Charlie tackle their first affiliated one day event in the 80cm and Roo also makes her British Eventing debut! πŸ΄πŸ€
