Happy New Year to you all! Mine has certainly kicked off with a bang!
New horses arrived just after Xmas including one from Scotland and 1 from North Yorkshire. It is very complimentary to know that owners who will not be able to visit their horses are prepared to send them 4 hours and more away from home for us to carry out their rehab work.
Also in is a lovely dressage horse who has come for his holidays whilst his mum enjoys hers! And he is an absolute delight to ride.
This week has also seen the release of tickets to the 'What the Judge is Looking For' demo that I have organised in conjunction with Prescott Equestrian Centre. And I'm pleased to say that all tickets sold out in less than 4 days.
This event will take the audience through the levels from Prelim to Medium under the guidance of Harry Payne (List 1) and Val Smyth (List 2). 4 brave guinea pigs will each ride a test and be critiqued by the judges.
It is a fantastic opportunity to witness live scoring of a dressage test and also hear the judges discuss what the riders could have done to maximise their marks.
We will also be hosting a raffle in aid of Cancer Research and I will be posting details of the raffle prizes on the event facebook page in the coming weeks
