Since a lovely Christmas break, with all the stables empty and the horses out in the field having a well deserved holiday… everything is now back in full swing. The horse all came back into work at the beginning of the week, looking fat and shaggy! They will have a month of road work, then start their fast work (galloping) and their schooling, gradually getting them fit and ready for the start of the even season in March. I have two exciting new young horses for this season, Charlie- who is a 5yr, 16.1hh, dutch bred gelding, and Brian- who is a 5yr, 17.hh, dutch bred gelding. This will be both of their firsts seasons eventing, both of them have not competed before. They are both very talented young horses… so it should be a very exciting season! Mr Hiho (my top horse) thoroughly enjoyed his winter break but is now also back in full work building up his fitness… I will compete him in the Junior trials this year and aim to to the CIC** at Houghton Hall, with my eyes set on the Junior European Championships!
