Clare Poole's horse Lennox went well, with two top three placings at PSG and Inter 1 on the first day, then a win at PSG and a ticket to the National Championships. Lisa Price, who I train with, took her horse Angelo  with us and won the Restricted Advanced Medium - a great venue, and well worth the trip. Well done to all the team.

Since then myself, Ashley, Rebecca, and Milli who work and ride on the yard have been out and about qualifying the majority of the horses for at least one class at the Regional Championships. Good Luck to Jamie trying to organise who goes where, when and how!

I try and get over to my trainer Carl Hester every 3 weeks, I took Angelo and our horse Olli last Monday. This was the first time I'd taken Olli to Carl's, and his first outing since last year’s Nationals (he won the Young Horse Supreme Championship). Both horses went really well, and Carl gave us plenty of homework!

Our next big outing is Somerford Premier League, hopefully, as we only managed to get on the waiting list.

Finally, a huge thanks to Sharron Harrington from Saracen who paid us a visit today to tweak a couple of the horses’ diets to try and get the energy levels right - in both directions! Fingers crossed we get in to Somerford so we can test the results....."
