December.

We managed to cram a quite a few things in during December!

Both No Stress and New Forest Riding Club ran their Christmas dressage competitions with us and our  Cheryl Bezants and Emily Harris clinics were three full days of training, luckily the weather was kind for all of them as far as I remember!

Mandy and James did very well in the BRC online Christmas dressage coming 3rd in the elementary, just one mark behind the winner!  They also had an educational outing to Crofton, they were the only entries in both novice 38 and elementary 57 so the placings were irrelevant but it was great to get James out to another new venue.   He was a tad exciting in the warm up  but Mandy had her velcro pants on   and there was a lot to like in both tests.

Denver  had an extended  Christmas holiday so has done nothing more than cover himself in mud this month!

Lizzie has been quite  busy  though, she has had a lovely time in    the Cheryl jumping clinics & the Emily clinic then finished the year with a super outing to Sparsholt for their Christmas BD show.  She did a lovely    test in the advanced medium  music finishing 2nd in the section with just under 68% then won advanced  105 with by far her best test at this level.   

Lizzie & Alison have since enjoyed a  break over Christmas  and are now looking forward to preparing for  the regional championships and the Petplan area festivals in February. 

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year! (There's already lots of dates on our diary page  if you're planning your  2022 campaign)
