Saturday was our last event of the season and we headed to Alnwick Ford.

Cruise was once again a superstar in the Novice, leading the dressage with a two point margin and finishing in thirdπŸ₯‰after having an unlucky rail in the showjumping. That’s a top ten finish in all bar-one of his National runs this season β­οΈβ­οΈβ­οΈπŸ¦„

Roo stepped up a level to 100 and really came of age. I’ll not be the only one to have wondered wether she had enough β€˜zoom’ in her to be an eventer but she certainly found her zoominess this time and after a little hiccup at the first fence, she took me round like a pro (no kicking required!) πŸŽπŸ’¨ πŸ˜‚ She jumped the ditch without hesitation and the skinny wedge out of the water like she’s jumped them all her life (she’s never seen one!) so I know she is super genuine and a real trier. Really pleased with her and excited for next year now the baby-ness is hopefully behind her.

So that’s a wrap for this season, and what a great one it has been πŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ¦„

Massive thank you to my team of helpers - Chloe, Lisa, Jo, Lucy, Jackie and to Martin who is quite simply the best husband ever!

Busy weekend up and down the A1 with the boys to compete at the stunning Allerton Park Horse Trials in YorkshireπŸ‘πŸŽβ˜€οΈ

Unfortunately Cruise arrived on Saturday for the prestigious Novice Masters with some slight filling in his front legs and although seemed 100% well within himself and performed a lovely dressage test we decided not to risk him in the jumping phasesπŸ€• We will hopefully re-route to Alnwick Ford this weekend ⏩

Pea Pod put in another stella performance in the Intermediate. 6th after dressage, an improved showjumping round and had a real blast cross country round a big, bold, galloping track. I’m starting to believe we can actually do this! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

That’s a wrap for Pea Pod for the 2021 season.

What a boy πŸ˜πŸ¦„

Happy to say that Evan has found a new little person to look after him and will be staying here πŸ΄πŸ’•

🍎Evan🍎

13.2hh, 10yo Gelding

Evan was part of our riding school before it closed. He has been out on loan since last summer to a family with two young, inexperienced children and has come back through no fault of his own.

Evan has done a little bit of everything here - trekking, lessons, jumping, pony parties, games etc but is not a schoolmaster. He has not been away to shows or rallies but loads and travels well and has been to local shows for pony rides.

He is a kick along type and needs a rider with a bit of oomph to get the best out of him.

He is still learning his trade but is sweet pony, with not a bad bone in his body and is not naughty in any way. He can be a little headstrong on the ground when in a new environment but has been well handled by many children during his time in the riding school at pony mornings and parties.

Evan would make a great second pony for a confident, determined child (suggest 10+) or a small adult.

🐴 Experienced home only
🐴 Other horses or ponies for company
🐴 Lives out 24/7
🐴 Confident, determined rider
🐴 Ideal for hacking/low level pony club activities

Viewings can be arranged Tues, Wed or Thursday any time, or weekends from October.
