March.

Last month we ran our usual jumping and dressage clinics with Cheryl Bezants and Emily Ormerod and we played host a couple of dressage shows for New Forest Riding club and NoStress dressage. We also hosted our first working equitation  clinic with Caroline Klinkard which proved to be very popular. 

For us and the horses it's been a bit quieter though. After a busy start to the year Lizzie had an easy month with some    physio treatment from the wonderful Equilibrium veterinary physiotherapy and her first trip to Aquastride Water  Treadmill at Landford Common Stud.   Denver has spent his time with his new sharer Kat getting to know one another & they all enjoyed the lovely weather that the last couple of weeks March offered us.

Mandy and James did have one outing this month, another new venue for him, at Crofton Manor for the BRC intermediate dressage qualifier. They were representing Chilworth Riding Club on the team doing an elementary and individually doing a novice.  Unfortunately James was a little green for the team test, it was indoors   and he found it a bit spooky. He didn't really do anything wrong, just a little tense so they finished out of the placings.  In the novice though he did a super test winning the class with 70% and qualifying them for the Championships at Bury Farm in April!
