Time to get back into the routine of showjumping at Chyverton Park and out of my comfort zone! I've run out of excuses to still go in the 2'9" and Mel won't let me get away with it anymore(I tried last week when she was at the stallion show), so lept I have into the next two classes. Things are going well and I know I've got to do it but that dry mouth and butterflies are back, sad I know! Jago seems completely unfazed and is going in and doing his stuff so now the pilots got to do the same! Sadly (for me) Mary has decided that time off is great and has now damaged her hock so looks like lots of box rest and then more fittening work, I will have to put our come back,back!Cry Alison

Stallion Show at Tall Trees

Yesterday March 1st i took Eclipse to Tall Trees for thier Stallion show.

What a great opportunity for mare owners to select a prospective sire.

Their were about 25 stallions parading which im sure made it worth while for mare owners to make the trip to Tall Trees.

Each stallion gave a display and imformative commentry read out. The gallery was full to the brim as well as the dinning area with spectators.

It was one of the smoothest run stallion shows i have been to. The Deithrick family did a great job with the organisation. A big thank you to Jackie, Clare and Katie. I do hope you will run it again next year. All the mare owners i spoke to hope it will be on next year also.

For My Eclipse it was a very worth while trip as he had several bookings for the coming stud season.

First XC schooling session for Mouse and Ermintrude at Chyverton Park




(left) Mouse jumping one of her first xc fences.

The lovely ears belong to Lorna Rodda's Tilly who was very a very good nanny.

(right) Ermintrude and Anna in action.

Both of these mares are Eclipse children and will aim to do some events later in the season.

 We were really pleased with how they went and i think they enjoyed their introduction to xc.

Two exciting prospects for the coming season.


While we were riding

Anna's son Sam trying very hard to make friends with some lambs.

Then it all got much more interesting!

Sand school

The digger has been working all week getting the levels correct. Today we laid the perimeter drains.

Next job is to get the post and rail fencing up. Then more drains.

Big thankyou to Mark for helping me today. As seen in a trench below!

Delighted to have great old friend back riding again

Great old mate Anna Barrington who built my fantastic new web site. Which i have to say i think she has done brilliant job.

Anna and myself worked for the Wiegersma family when they were based at Tregembo in west cornwall. We were very lucky to have had Carolyn Crieghton training us. Though i am sure we drove Carolyn mad when our odd late night back from a trip to Penzance meant we were pretty useless the next day!

Anna was a class jockey in her eventing days and rode at high level such as Blenham three day event.

And i am pleased to say she still looks as good riding my stallion last week. Babysitting her three year old son 'Sam' while she schools some of my horses is the deal which so far is ok but if Sam starts being difficult i think it only fair the horse she is schooling gets more difficult! Luckily for Anna her son is a bit of a charmer.

Though i think Anna has had a harsh reminder of those muscles which she forgot she had!

Look forward to your next visit Anna.
