July News

  • Hope all the juniors had fun at camp, it was a fabulous weekend and we had amazing weather. I’m still recovering so will post more next month and Maisie is doing me a write up.

  • Good to see Gracey and Zayna at a polework/jumping training session at Curland. The working hunter style fences were out in the arena. The girls did brilliantly doing different jumps especially a skinny. I am planning to organise another session soon.

  • There is a another juniors training coming up on the 12th August - all the details are the events calendar. I am also organising a cross country training session on the 1st September- again details on the calendar. So please let me know if you’re interested, there is plenty of mini jumps and upwards in size at Pontispool.


  • Looking forward to Hartpury trip on Saturday. Can’t wait to shop and see some top event riders and horses. I wonder if Samara will buy anything purple for Minnie????

On July 1st my wonderful pony Libby finally turned eight years old! To celebrate, Liberty-Lou (Libby) had a very relaxed day off with her companion, Star. In the evening I made up a birthday tea, which consisted of plenty of delicious apple and treats and chaff. Though I do think I got a bit carried away with the birthday tea, Libby couldn’t finish it! On the other hand, Star managed to finish all of hers and was even after the rest of Libby’s afterwards! Me and Libby are currently attending the musical ride training
