Top 10 Success At Myerscough Premier League

I have just returned from a fantastic few days away competiting at Myerscough Premier League. I want to take the opportunity to thank the venue and all its fantastic event staff for their wonderful help and support. They made our visit to the show a great experience and Foxy and I really appreciate it.

Foxy and I competed in the hotly contested small tour classes setting new 'personal bests' in the process. We finished 4th with 68.29% in a 35 strong Prix St George class on Thursday and held onto 6th place with 68.16% (our highest score at this level so far) in Friday's big Intermediate I class. I am so proud of our achievements this weekend. It was only two short years ago that I attended this show to watch and marvel at the talented professional horse and riders, and to be there in the prize giving shoulder to shoulder with them was a fantastic and proud moment. 

Addington High Profile Show success

Had a brilliant time at Addington High Profile Show. Foxy was fantastic in a hugely competitive and large Prix St George class with over 30 starters, finishing just off the podium with 4th place and just shy of 69% (since corrected from 5th).

The freezing temperatures and threat of snow couldn't stop us hardcore "Dressage Diva's" from strutting our stuff. Big thanks as ever to my incredibly patient and tolerant trainer and mentor Richard Davison for your continued support.

Great start to the 2015 competition season.
