    Second weekend of August plans!

    Oh no!! I was wondering how you’d got on. Hope you’re not too sore.

    Very odd looking trailer - any ideas?

    Looks like Robocop to me! I don’t hate it 😄

    OMG it's august weekend plans!

    Yes we were there both days. If that’s the combo I’m thinking of who fell towards the end of the day, she was having a lovely round and it seemed a huge shame - we’d just been commenting on how well they’d jumped the coffin. I spoke to the water jump FJs at the end of the day and they said she...

    It seemed to ride a lot more smoothly than it has in previous years. Didn’t hear any requests over the radio for course repair to go and investigate the footing.

    The water didn’t cause as many problems as normal! I think one on each weekend day and they were both stumbles in the water rather than fence related? I don’t think the results will say which fence the faults were at. Let me cast my mind back to what was coming up on the radio... Sat was 90...

    Oh I’m so pleased you’ve finally found him! 😄 He looks lovely.

    OMG it's august weekend plans!

    Long second day at Cholmondeley today due to a hold of over an hour at one point (think the doctor was tied up with a SJ casualty so they couldn’t run the XC until she was free?). Lively day though - we were on the coffin in the afternoon and had one faller, many many refusals, one horse that...

    Our experience of BE post lockdown

    I found the competitors walking the XC course at Cholmondeley this weekend were much chattier than normal - lots of thank yous and nice conversations. I think everyone’s just really glad to be back! Sorry you didn’t have the same experience Batgirl :(

    Also I probably shouldn’t criticise because I wouldn’t ever even start a BE event, but also y’know, you watch 250 horses a day around a XC course for multiple days a year and you’re probably allowed some opinion on this... The BE90 classes ran with horses every 2 mins from 9.30am to 3.45pm...

    OMG it's august weekend plans!

    Well day 1 of fence judging under the new rules went really well! Musketeer run Cholmondeley and they’re always highly efficient, so no surprise that we were given loads of pre-event info, a full event pack and a link to a 30 min YouTube video of the BE briefing. (On that note, it was a good...

    "New" trainer for Ludo

    I think he’s an absolute cracker 😄 I remember the last video you posted and don’t think I commented at the time but he had such nice natural elevation in it. The rhythm is looking good in this one!

    A full weekend of fence judging at Cholmondeley. Woo hoo!!! I cannot wait. We haven’t done any since Kelsall last September (I think - feels about 6 years ago!) and I’ve missed it so much. Shall report back about what it’s like in this weird new world. I’ve watched the briefing video on...

    Weekend plans for last weekend in July

    Oh that’s a bit frustrating AE! Was it a case of just sailing along and forgetting to use her legs at the easy fences? Lots of positives though - better luck next time!

    And a lesson report from mega midget too!

    He’s looking fab!

    Beach Rides - Formby? *Pic*

    Basically what Hallo2012 said about Formby! This is the horse route to the beach - it’s narrow and straight up the dunes. A bit alarming if your horse throws a strop, as Monty decided to do 🙄 It’s lovely but you either need to go out of season or nice and early in the day because especially...
