Vikki’s Update 9th November 2012

Well it’s been another busy week, we are updating our web site, so there’s been quite a lot of work involved in providing Carl, our web site manager, with information.

We had our first airing of the PSG Freestyle at Bishop Burton last Sunday and had a good score despite the pirouettes being a bit large! We now have half of our qualification for Hartpury, I was hoping that we’d get another outing this afternoon at the Vale View Premier League Show, however, anyone in my area would know that every route South was blocked this afternoon! It took me 20 minutes just to get into Tuxford!! I’m not sure what caused all the chaos on the roads today, but what a mess! Even the Walesby road was blocked this afternoon due to an accident – incredible!

We had a nice 3rd in the advanced 100 at the Premier League show at Vale View yesterday and tomorrow we are off for a session with Stephen Clarke. Then Pedro has a couple of days off to recover.

Next week is another action packed week! I have a Safeguarding Children Workshop to deliver, a British Eventing Training day, a British dressage regional reps meeting at Stoneleigh, as well as all my lessons to fit in and horses to school.

We welcome a new resident this week, Liz has finally found herself a wonderful partner in Rikki. Rikki has been a para rider’s horse and has been with a friend of mine after the very tragic and sudden death of his owner. He is a wonderful horse and has settled in, it’s been a sad story, but Liz will take very good care of him and it’s a match made in heaven.

Other news this week……..Emma and Amelia’s sister has been in Horse and Hound page 86, Caroline Simmers was competing on Knockleith Eureka at Ladyleys in Scotland and got a fantastic score of 75.4% in the Novice 34. They certainly are a talented family!
