Keysoe Arena Eventing 100.

A few days post-entering Tweseldown and getting excited for the 2019 season, and Sid came in from the field with what can only be described as "a massive hole in his belly". 

Cue an emergency visit from the vet, several stitches (a large bill)...

Keysoe Arena Eventing 100.

Well, it's been a while since I wrote an event report, but after months of mud, wind and rain it was FINALLY time to enjoy the mud, wind and rain somewhere other than home!


Our destination of choice for this first foray back into the wor...

Munstead/Tweseldown BE100.

You may have been wondering why things have been quiet lately on the event updates front.

Firstly, I abandoned Sid for a few weeks to take a holiday.

For those with horses that don't know, a holiday is "an extended period of leisure and recreati...

Smiths Lawn BE100.

Well, our last outing at Chilham was rather successful and this, inevitably, could not last.

We had enjoyed a very short stay at the heady heights of Hotel Mediocrity, but our bags had been packed and the holiday had come to an end.

A day of work in the...

Chilham BE100.

You may recall that we had a slightly-less-than-perfect-but-still-encouraging day at Tweseldown a few weeks ago. One cross country outing (and one concussion-inducing fall to keep my long-suffering trainer on his toes) later and our next trial by ordeal w...

I know by now that some of you are wondering if I ride so terribly because it makes for better reading.

Sadly, I can confirm that the answer to that is no –

I am this much of a disaster.

Anyway, after a night drinking prosecco* with first mother-in-law and...

Brightling BE100

Well the day started badly, because I managed to only get about 2 hours' sleep before my alarm started shouting at me.

This may have been – in part – because of the gluttonous amount of gin and/or cheese board I consumed for dinner the night before, but...

*but a moderate one. Think gentle tap on solitary cymbal rather than Phil Collins – In The Air.

Some of you may remember me as "that one that somehow got stuck on the shark's teeth XC jump at Aston-le-Walls"

…not our finest hour.

Post-physio, lots of cold hosing of a swol...

July 12, 2018

When I started writing event reports/blog posts, I promised myself that I would never not write about an event just because it had gone badly.

I have taken a while writing about this particular attempt (generous!) because it went so horribly wrong and, for a while, I wa...

Imagine waking up on a dreary Monday morning to the dulcet tones of a rapper aggressively spitting out a mix of curse words and derogatory references to women…….

Yup, first husband mistakenly equates growing up in Swindon to being born "in the hood".

So far so depressing...
