Katie and Lord
Had a brilliant weekend away with a brillaint team at the brc 5* Nat champs chuffed to have even qualified but to even come 3rd on the teams was the cherry on top we also picked up 6th individual in our dressage just love this boy being 24 and still being top of his game, hugh thank you to the team Rachael, Emma, Kaye (and your lovely gran), Courtney, Neil and Liam which it would never be so relaxing without!
Emma and Star
What a weekend with great team mates! After a nightmare in the days before travelling not knowing if we had complete teams, we toddled off to the BRC National Championships in Lincoln with no expectations whatsoever. Little did we know the horses were going hold it together, pull it out of the bag and give us some amazing results.
Star posted 2 amazing rounds in the team jumping and the team bagged 3rd place giving us the added bonus of fun in the mounted prize giving. He also gave me a super ride in the Novice dressage posting a 66% at his first dressage championship in very strong company. I could not have asked for any more and he could not have tried any harder or behaved any better 'SuperStar!!' So much love for this little horse. A big well done to Rachel, Katie and especially Kaye who hopped on Cara for the first time on Friday before getting some amazing results, not only with the team but stealing the 8th spot individually too. Thank you all for an amazing weekend. Thanks to super gran for making sure we were all fed, also supergroom Courtney and the support crew of Liam, Neil and Buddy xx
Kaye and Cara
Wow what a weekend ... after a last minute call to ride for the BKRC teams at Lincoln, I am so glad I said yes ... I have had a fabulous weekend away with these amazing ladies and their awesome ponies.
Massive thank you to Rachael and Courtney for letting me have the ride on your amazing Cara, she certainly looked after me jumping a double clear to help the team gain overall 3rd place and an individual 8th place. I have never ever ridden a long arena novice test before, but was so chuffed to actually remember the test and to get 65.38% at a national championship!! Just wow, a super talented horse and a credit to you girls, thank you so much for letting me have the opportunity to ride her. A Huge thank you too, to my “Top Granny” for driving over 6 hours to get me there and for looking after us all, she truly is a super gran!! Thank you all again girls (and boys), I really have missed all of this - fingers crossed I’ll be out again soon.
Rachael and Flo
Wow, what an awesome weekend we’ve had at Lincoln, with some pretty amazing people!
I’m very very proud of my gorgeous Flo. Her first EVER Elementary test AND at a national championships, to score 65.8%. With a lovely comment from the judge to say “lots of talent for the future “!
We weren’t so focused in the showjumping and flo was more interested in what was going on around her rather than what was in front of us. So racked up a bit of a cricket score. Luckily the rest of the team were absolutely brilliant, Which meant we were Team 3rd!! Yay!!!
A special mention goes to Kaye for saving the teams last minute and riding our awesome Cara, who not only got one of very few double clears but also picked up an individual 8th place! Well done lovely
And massive thanks to her gran who kept us well fed and hydrated
