  • Dulcie Shelford 2020



     

       




       



    Dulcie competing Shelford 80cm unaffiliated - 3rd.  I had entered her in the 80cm as she can be a little spooky cross country, and like a lot of inexperienced horses, very busy looking at everything but the fences!  She took me by surprise and even though it was only her second ODE, she locked onto all the fences and thoroughly enjoyed herself.  Her next outing will be 90cm.  




  • Dulcie XC Training 2020



     

       



       

    Although 2020 was very limited on the competition side, Dulcie's love of jumping meant that I took her XC schooling a few times.  Here she is at Winters XC thoroughly enjoying the water complex.




  • Cluedo Winter Regional Championships 2020



     

    Held at Bishop Burton. 
    After having had nearly 3 weeks off due to a minor injury, we just managed to complete enough training sessions before the Winter Regionals.

    Elementary 59 we were a little ring rusty and very spooky so finished down the order.

    Elementary Freestyle to Music we performed a solid test to finish 3rd.

  •  Area Festival at Sheepgate.  3 October 2015.

    An early start, and a long day but very pleasing results.  
    Cluedo, having only recently been registered with BD gained a very respectable 8th place in the Novice Open section.  A promising test, although he was somewhat unsettled, as it was only the second time that he had travelled with Phoebe, and he was calling to her for much of the test.
    Phoebe has just moved up to Medium level, and gained 9th place in the Restricted section.  A solid test, but she still has to strengthen much more before she can gain the higher percentages.




  • Phoebe. Senior Inter Regionals 2015




    Really enjoyable weekend representing BD Northern at Keysoe EC. Very spooky arenas, and a very challenging warm up test for Phoebe, she then settled and although not her best work two solid team tests then followed.



  • Phoebe, Area Festival Championships at Hartpury.  15 April 2015.

    We arrived mid afternoon Tuesday, and had Phoebe settled in her stable within 30 minutes of arrival, thanks to very efficient Hartpury organisation.  Easy stretching work that evening before an arena familiarisation walk.  Wednesday we had an early test time.  Phoebe warmed up well, but performed a mixed test.  Some lovely work for 7's and even the odd 8, but unfortunately interspersed by some 4's and 5's, when the horse eating arena monsters suddenly appeared!  Overall a positive experience.

  • Cluedo`s First Outing.  28 March 2015.

    Cluedo went to Hill House for his first ever competition today.  No issues getting on, which is always a relief with Cluedo, new environments tend to make him quite on edge and reactive.   Warmed up well, once he got over his initial nervousness. Little spooky again when he left the warm up and went into the main arena, but then settled quickly and performed a very respectable first test for 69.50%.
