Update April 2018
It's been a while since we wrote anything on this page so the intention moving forward is to improve massively. We have had lots of change and lots of new opportunities in the last twelve months. Fred has continued to develop his coaching portfolio including work in China and Ireland, Pony Club teams, a special award from the 'Wobbleberry' movement, not to mention all of his regular clients. He has progressively moved Arthur through to Advanced level dressage and Flash is now winning at Prelim level. Flash has also attended coaching with Christopher Bartle and Nick Turner with a view to his successful future career. More recently Fred has been out on the eventing field with Jonny who is 'very game' for the rest of the season! So keep checking in. :)
We have been leaning over Flash every day after the long reining sessions and here are his first steps!
Cooper update- we went to Munstead yesterday thinking we'd covered all the bases but as you can see he was having a Super Duper jumping day... He jumped into the half coffin using this style and of course stopped at the ditch because he didn't have time to see it. Unfortunately he dispatched Fred at the same time so they retired. Bear with us because this talented horse is so close to breaking through. It's just finding the balance between his mega enthusiasm and his lack of experience! We have one more event in three weeks before the end of the season, so we'll keep training hard and see what we can do.
Well done Arthur- winner of BD medium 61 today at Aston-Le-walls! Thanks Lisa Kent for the ride and Toni Hodges for brilliant reading. Next stop RoR championships in two weeks.
