Wilton July 2013 – Intermediate – 5th

Wilton – July 2013 – Intermediate – 5th For the dressage phase we faced a more demanding test than either of us had tackled before. In the arena overall it felt reasonable, but certain movements could have been better. Freddie got tense in parts and bucked in one canter transition. However, […]

Eridge June 2013

Eridge – June 2013      Novice We went along to our local BE event on a very hot summers day. Unfortunately this didn’t suit Freddie as he soon became very agitated by the heat and flies. He didn’t behave very well whilst warming up and still felt uptight in […]

Chilham Castle April 2013

  Chilham Castle – April 2013    Novice 10th The day had a unlucky start, as during first part of the dressage test, Freddie pulled one of his front shoes off. This then made the remainder of the test interesting as Liane had to try and avoid the shoe that had […]
