July began with a lovely weekend trip to Somerford Park for the first of two regional competitions. I was chuffed to bits with 5-year-old Romeo (TCE Jubilant al Sno, who is owned by Dad and I) as he finished 4th in a hot elementary gold class. We returned home with fingers crossed for a wild card.
Some three months on since my last blog and I’m having a super season with both Duffy and Max, with lots to share. Being selected to represent the Northern Squad at the Frickley 2019 National U18 Eventing Championships with Duffy back in July was an awesome experience and a key milestone in my eventing journey.
As Joules is one of the biggest names in country and equestrian fashion and certainly one of our favourite brands, we’ve thought our fabulous customers would appreciate a look back to where it all began…
Apologies for the lack of updates recently, unfortunately I managed to get a virus 6 weeks ago and it has made me dizzy and have chronic fatigue. Not great when you want to ride and compete!
A few members of the Millbry Hill team have been fortunate enough to attend the Saracen “Feeding the Performance Horse Day” at Carl Hester’s yard, and we thought it would be great to have a catch up with them to find out what it was all about…!
July was a very busy month. I had no expectations of competing for Great Britain this year at all, I was just hoping to get back into the swing of things and doing more low key things until next year. But after our win at Somerford premier league, that completely turned things around and we were selected for Hartpury and Hickstead CDI in July!
Supported Rider, Mel Chapman, gives us the low-down on the past few months My previous blog ended just as I was abut to embark upon a trip to the BD Winter Nationals. I had qualified four young horses for the championship in April and I couldn’t have been prouder of the way they all dealt with the atmosphere and the occasion.
All the action at Bramham from our Supported Riders That’s a wrap for Bramham 2019, another year been and gone. If you didn’t make it this year, we’ve put together a summary from our Supported Riders…from Storm strutting her stuff on the Trot Up to Julie finishing in the top 25 ten years since she last competed at Bramham!
