End of season news from Martha Jobling-Purser

Lots of updates to make! In June I went for a lesson with Tracy Woodhead and somehow a day turned into months! I decided to spend the summer at the Woodhead’s in Grimsby until I sat my GCSE exams in October and November. It was such a fantastic experience, I learnt so much and developed a lot of strength! I worked 5 days a week from 6:30 am to 5pm and it involved mucking out, poo picking, lunging, riding, grooming, preparing horses for riding etc. Being based at the yard... Read More

End of season news from Kate Sanderson

The start of this year was just non-stop with qualifiers and shows, that after the BD Winter Championships in June for the first time ever I just felt I needed a bit of a break in the sport. The ponies already had... Read More

End of season news from Xanthe De Wesselow

Hi all, I hope everyone is well, especially as we approach December with increasingly shorter and darker days! I have actually been living and working in Spain for the past two months which is very different to my normal autumn/winter of hacking and schooling the horses wearing endless layers and two pairs of gloves. I will be home in three weeks time ready to crack on with some winter training. In the meantime, the horses have enjoyed a bit of down time following a busy end of the season, contesting...
