Happy new year!!!!
We can only hope and pray at some point it stops raining! However as I'm typing this the sun is streaming through the window, so maybe a good omen? ;-)
I do hope so!
2012 seemed to be filled with cancelled events, everyone desperate for a run/outing and all the hard work and preparation that goes into preparing any horse or pony for a competition, wasted.
All very disheartening but at least Emma and Harley managed some outings, the crowning moment of their season resulting in them being part of the RC Novice Dressage Championship winning team!
We are continuing our sponsorship of this inspiring pair into 2013. Despite being inundated with requests for sponsorship from riders all over the UK, Emma and Harley are very much part of the furniture here. We enjoy following their ups and downs and also feel that we too are part of their team.
So good luck for the coming season everyone, you can catch up with Emma on her blog/website below.
It doesn't get much better than this!

And it's still raining.....................
Emma had a successful run at Eden Valley and gained a 9th placing in the BE80T class, first placing for Mr H so congratulations Emma!
Following that, due to the adverse weather here in the north of England both Northallerton and Richmond were cancelled, leaving a bit of a gap in our calendar until Hexham in June.
In the meantime Emma jetted off to the USA for a visit to the Kentucky 4* three day event.
Full report and lots of lovely photos on her blog below, not sure when her next eventing outing will be, best keep an idea on the weather first!
March 22nd 2012
Emma and Harley had their first real outing of 2012, an entry in the BE90 at Draycott House in Derbyshire. Despite Harley performing a few above ground movements that were not actually on the test, they gained a dressage score of 36. An unlucky pole in the show jumping gained them another 4 penalties, then a green horse moment on the cross county dropped them to 22nd place. Overall a very happy Emma, and a much improved Harley!
Emma very kindly sent us some photos of yesterday, with Harley modelling his new "Horse Wardrobe" saddle cloth and Comfort Zone lapel rug. Both are excellent items from "Comfort Zone" and we hope they come in very useful this season.
Next outing? Eden Valley next month we think, watch this space!
