The prolonged dry period
really took it’s toll on our grass, and the paddocks looked more like desserts
than fields of grass! however , now we are back to our normal British
weather we have grass thank goodness, and the horses are happy again. It doesn’t
seem possible we’re more than half way through the year.
Nelson has been doing
really well at competions, and was 6th in the open class at Isleham which
had a stronfg entry, but horses are always great levellers and Nelson is no
exception. He has developed a sinus infection as well as a back
leg problem and is now off work for a month, much to poor Megan’s
frustration as she was really looking forward to a competion she had entered
at Burghley next week. – well I suppose there’s always next year. Luckily
all the other equines are in good health, and Barney is off for a trip to the
sea side for a weekend!
We are hosting a teaching
exam for the Association of British Riding Schools in July and several
of the clients are going to be guinea pigs so they are busy polishing their
boots, and getting smartened up for the occassion!
Jack Quinlan continues to
ride winners and next season will be riding for John Ferguson who will have 30+
jumpers in training, so watch this space.
We are gearing up for a
busy summer holiday season, and as always our course details are on www.coachhouseriding.co.uk The new website is now almost
ready for relaunch, it’s been a huge amount of work but hopefully worth it we
have lots of great photos on it, and we are aiming for it to go live in August.
