What’s going on at Redesdale?

Today we had a jolly back to Frenchfield with the ‘B Team’ for a little training run in the eventer’s derby (eventing without the dressage). Hero, who is having a explorative restart to competitive life after a few issues, won the 95cm 🤩 Today was well within his capabilities but given we haven’t jumped a proper xc fence since being eliminated here three years ago, it is a heart warming result 🦄💕
Baby Roo, also sidelined for three years through injuries (hers & mine) is just starting her career. Eight years old now, but really four in experience she show jumped clear but wasn’t too sure about the step up or the ditch xc 🙈 She has missed her schooling runs due to our renegade sheep having random babies, but more practice and better preparation will see her right 🐻💕
AND we got through the whole weekend without getting wet!! Miracle 🙌🏻 ... See MoreSee Less
Well done, not getting wet, great start and restart. Onward and upward.
Thats great news, well done all of you, I think the A Team is about to get bigger at this rate x

Eventing is sport where you probably learn more when things don’t quite go according to plan than when they do and yesterday was one of those days!
We took Pea Pod to Richmond for the Intermediate. This is the next level up and just one level away from the highest National competition in the sport. It’s getting pretty serious 😳 The jumps at this level are well up to chest height.
After a top ten dressage, Pea Pod struggled in the very tight showjumping arena and although it felt like a nice, balanced round we left five poles on the ground 😞
We don’t go eventing for the showjumping though, so onwards to the cross country where Pea Pod jumped boldly and confidently round a big, galloping track. Just a little glance off a narrow brush in a step-up-jump-step-down-jump combination blotted our copy book but it was a rider error, I just didn’t quite get the line and hence the stride right from the drop to the skinny. This is our first cross country jumping penalty EVER. So I’ll try not to dwell on it!!
So, I come away with notes to self:
Pea Pod is still a wonderful horse for giving me the opportunity to ride again at this level 😍
We need to do more competition showjumping practice 😬
Jockey did well to be positive at big, wide, scary fences but needs to be sharper and more proactive at combinations 👊🏻
Challenge and progression feels more satisfying than an easy rosette 🤩
Next stop for Pea Pod is Belsay 😀 ... See MoreSee Less
Huge jumps! He was brilliant and so were you. Belsay will be a great weekend for you I'm sure 🤩
You two look incredible....in all disciplines!! Those are certainly VERY big jumps to be doing with hardly any room for a 'run up' in that arena! Amazing stuff 🌟🍾 Ps I'm aware that having a 'run up' at a jump probably isn't the correct equestrian term... But you know what i mean?! 😂
Massive well done so pleased for you that you are back up at this level with your beautiful boy! It’s scary to push ourselves but your totally right challenging ourselves is very satisfying, I’m about to move up levels after festival and I’m terrified but so excited.
Massive well done Hel, you don’t give yourself enough credit. To come back and jump those fences after a nasty fall takes some doing. You both look awesome, the only way is up! Thanks for posting, it’s great to watch and see how u are doing 👏
Well done! The pair of you look great. A minor blip but I’m sure it will be upwards & onwards x
Lovely horse, and an obvious partnership. Everyone is a little competition rusty at the moment, but so many promising partnerships for the rest of the season.
AMazing....my heart stopped a few times watching, you both did so well...Belsay here you come and the competition had better be nervous! xx
Wow not many welshies doing intermediate!! He is my absolute favourite even if he rolls a few poles in the sj!! I was pooping my pants doing the 90 at little whit - you have balls of steal Helen- helps that PP does too. The perfect combination!! Xx
Oh Helen! He looks just fabulous....even if a bit keen to have his own way in the SJ!
Well done xxx
A great achievement. Love your positive outlook.
‘Next level up’. Right there! Awesome. Huge congratulations.
I’m lost for words at your courage and positivity Helen. Well done and good luck at Belsay 😘
Well done Helen! That was a very skinny skinny!! 🙈😳 xx
Well done onwards and upwards xx
Massive well done Helen 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Well done Helen❤️
Well done Helen, the route is never smooth is it, you’re an amazing rider and Pea Pod an awesome horse.......plus I bet it was all bloody massive!
