This competition wasn’t our finest dressage performance by far.
Eva is not a fan of getting clipped. In short she hates being tickled so will barrel over anyone that does anything remotely tickley. A horse was getting clipped on the yard a few weeks ago and she was standing at the back of her stable having a bit of a snort at the whole [...]

(Previous - Dont Break your Vet) At the start of this year I posted about a learning week that the BEVA (British Equine Veterinary Association) launched called "Don't Break Your Vet".

Another year of Blair horse trials is now over and this year I realised one thing. We really need to invest in an inflatable air mattress. Previous years I was perfectly fine sleeping with the mats and blankets underneath. However this year after a bit of a chaotic ceilidh on the Thursday night another three [...]
