Today we returned to Frenchfield with the babies for the Eventer’s Derby, which includes only the jumping phases 😀
Roo and Cruise excelled themselves finishing 3rd and 7th respectively 🦄🦄🐎🐎
This was their first cross country competition having only seen xc fences for the first time during a little schooling session last week.
What a pair of superstars ⭐️⭐️ ... See MoreSee Less

Great day out at a lovely new event in Cumbria at the weekend - Frenchfield.
Dude put in an assured performance in the 90 for sixth place ⭐️👏 With a big attitude in a small body this little horse has a bright future ahead of him and after a confident first season eventing he will soon be for sale 🙁
A superlative dressage performance in the 105 for a score of 25.8 saw Charlie in the top three after this phase. He didn’t disappoint in the jumping phases either although an unlucky couple of poles and a few time faults left him just outside the top ten in 12th. The 105 was the showcase class at this event and the cross country proved a challenge for many, but Charlie really skipped round the difficult questions gaining confidence all the way🐎💪😍
Hero also came to the party, but unfortunately more in body than in spirit. I am not too proud to say we have not really been on the same wavelength this season and this courageous horse would probably do far better without his interfering jockey! We are currently formulating a plan to enable Hero to be back to his best for next year, while he currently enjoys a well deserved break🦄💕
Only one more event left for 2018 in two weeks time at Alnwick Ford where Pea Pod will be back in action 🍀 ... See MoreSee Less
Well done great job 👌🏻
Great for Dude, he's moving up the places each time! Charlie's dressage finish was lovely....I am surprised he didnt take a bow! Hope Hero enjoys the break x
Love the videos well done xx

Wiz is a very kind, sweet natured pony who has worked in our riding school and trekking centre since we bought him in Spring 2015. Previous to that he had also been in working in a riding school.
With us he has taught complete beginners from 8 years plus in our group pony morning lessons and older children and adults in private lessons. In the arena he is generally very steady, easy going and reliable.
Out riding he can be a little livelier and is a great ride for intermediate level riders, but not kick-along enough for complete beginners. The older children love him as he is such fun.
He has jumped up to 90cm at home, 75cm in competition and has been used in jumping lessons for novices.
Although we will be sad to see Wiz leave our family here, we feel he would have a much more fulfilling life with an ambitious child wanting to go on and have lots of fun jumping.
Wiz is not a schoolmaster, but is very willing. He is fun, can be ‘wizzy’, loves to jump, is very easy to handle and good with others horses. He has happily lived out year-round with us, but is also good in the stable. He currently works unshod and is up to date with worming and vaccinations.
Wiz’s ideal home would be with a competent, confident child (10+) who scan already ride and jump
and wants to wiz around the showjumping scene.

We had a little bit of fun on Friday with Roo and Cruise enjoying their very first taste of cross country.
These two big horses were little superstars during their first few baby steps to eventing super-stardom! 😀🦄🦄😍😍 ... See MoreSee Less
You might need a bigger lorry to get them all to Burghley!
Some fantastic jumping there. How good are they! You must be so pleased with them. Well done.
Room to spare!
Clever babies 🐎💨💨

Our lovely boys Monty and Archie are looking for volunteers to help with their exercise. 🦄🦄
Both are used in our riding school and trekking centre but have a light workload and would like to be kept ‘ticking over’ on their quiet days in-between lessons.
Both are suitable for novice riders and are easy to handle. In return we would ask for a small contribution to their running costs, or some help around the stables.
If you would be interested in helping with Monty or Archie then please get in touch. No under 16s please. ... See MoreSee Less
Susan Tait ! x
If only I lived close by ! Archie is such a lovely boy xxx
I’ll ask mum but I can probably come up and ride them if you want and give you a hand in the yard x
Would love to help if I was closer x

Slightly different weekend for us while we proudly watch the rest of the team out and about wowing the horse world with their expertise... little Ellie and Fluffy WINNING the lead rein jumping at the Bellingham Show, Lindsay and Archie completing their first in-hand class finishing 5th, Lucy and Jackie pony competing in their first competition and completing the 65cm and 75cm showjumping bringing home 4th place, Sam Eke a little further from home in Buckinghamshire competing against the the best in the county at the dressage Bronze Championships and perhaps the most emotional story of all.... Catherine, Liz and George on their first trip out in ten years with the evergreen George to score over 74% in the freestyle dressage to music at Alnwick Ford using their late Father’s favourite music.
Wow. Well done guys. So proud of you all 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks. We are really happy with how things went yesterday but you have given George a few extra marks as he actually got just over 71% 😃. Well done to everyone over this weekend and also the rest of the ponies who spent yesterday giving pony rides at the show. They deserve their own special awards for that too.
How fantastic, everyone out doing great things. Well done.
