Under 21's Dressage - Addington 28th & 29th July 2007

Charlotte, Tommy,  mum, and sister Rebecca made the long trip to Addington complete with all camping gear and had a very successful competition.  Each age group were split into teams of four and the team was judged over the four tests.

Tommy settled really well in his stable, which was a major concern for us all.   As he has so many issues, everyone was concerned living in a temporary stable with a plastic "flappy" roof would be just too much.  As usual he proved us wrong and settled beautifully and was still there in the morning.....................

Setting off at 7am to arrive with plenty of time was well worth the early start and the results proved so......................

We decided it wouldnt have been a good thing to come 1st or 2nd as the prize was a rug, this would have been a major problem as Tommy struggles to wear a lightweight rug without turning himself inside out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pony Day For the Easter Holidays 13th April 2007.

A busy day with lots of children attending - some not quite as young as others!!!  We built a small course in the morning and the children worked over the fences introducing some of the ponies to small fillers and working on jumping positions.

In the afternoon we had an easter egg hunt which was really good fun with children and ponies everywhere!!!!!!!  Following that with some pony games!!!!  We took lots of photos which are on a separate page - click photo to go to them!!!!!


Charity Dressage held at Brackenhurst 3rd March 2007

Charlotte and Maddie, competed on Tommy and George at the Charity Dressage Competition.  Charlotte rode two super tests and Maddie was an absolute star!!!!


Maddie and George

Charlotte gained 3rd place in the prelim 7 with 62.5% receiving 3 lovely rosettes and a gift voucher.  She also rode a lovely prelim 12 test and gained 60% but was just out of the prizes.

Charlotte and Tommy warming up

Maddie, riding at her second dressage competition, rode really well, and remembered her test, which we think is fantastic at seven years old!!!!!!!  George behaved perfectly and they came out of the arena with big smily faces!! (That was just the adults!!!!!!!!!)

Well done girls!!!!!!!!


Tommy finished!!                                                        Tommy going home tired!!!!


Pony Day - 22nd February 2007

We held another pony day in the half term holiday with seven girls attending.  The weather held up and wasnt too bad although cold and all the girls enjoyed it!!!!  Unfortunately we didnt get any pictures this time!!!!

In the morning after "settling" down some of the ponies, as it was very exciting working in a group for some of the ponies who came to join us for the day, we worked on flat work for competing in the showing arena.

The girls practised their paces and discussed individual shows.  We then held a mock show in which the girls rode as if in a showing class.  Each performed an individual show and we talked about each show as it was performed, where they could be improved, shortened, lengthened and how to impress the judge.

In the afternoon we set up a small showjumping course and the girls schooled over each fence together then came into the arena and jumped the whole course individually.

We had a few departures from the saddle with excitable ponies but everyone when home having an enjoyable day and in one piece!!!!!!


Spinal Research Dressage Competition, Brackenhurst Equestrian Centre - 4th & 5th January 2007

Well Done Charlotte and Tommy!!!!

Charlotte and Tommy rode four superb tests over the weekend, in huge classes, and gained results to prove it!!!!  After some very hard work, and lots of learning tests, as all our children ride the tests from memory, Charlotte brought home loads of rosettes, prizes and a huge trophy!!!!!!!!!

Tommy has come on in leaps and bounds, he is still an extremely nervous pony to handle, but Charlotte understands him completely, and Tommy tries his hardest to please and work correctly.
