On the Move

Aldon Horse Trials went very well (except for the rain and mud)! I rode 5 horses on the Sunday, rather a lot for an old lady! They all went well, but I felt the ground was too deep and holding to be competitive with the big boys and girls. However, Timmy (King Joules) finished 3rd! Urco very bravely leapt into the water after our ducking at Tweseldown, but I’m sure he was holding his breath! It was a joy to have Archie (Imperial Cavalier) out competing again; he is such a class horse to ride. He and Tess (Kings Temptress) have just one more event before Badminton which is up at Burnham Market on 2nd and 3rd April…so fingers crossed they stay fit and sound!

We are moving into our new house at my yard at the mo, which is soo exciting. Emily’s trailer is being put to good use; I’m becoming quite a proficient furniture removal woman!

A Nuzzlets trip

At the weekend volunteers from Nuzzlets (Vicki, Kathy, Caroline and Kath) and some of the animals visited Martin House Hospice in Wetherby for Sibling Day. Silbling Day happens three times a year for poorly children at the hospice and their siblings. The children walked the lambs and rabbits, held the chicks and ducks and fed the guinea pigs – a fun time was had by all!
