So the sun is shining which is great for staff , horses and of course you guys, it about time too! The horses are all looking fab, shiny and loving the warm weather. The long warm days allows us to take hacks out till much later in the evening, find out more about these evening hacks later on.
So we had a great turn out for the Easter show, it was full of Easter bunnies, flowers and best of all chocolate! Including a gigantic chocolate Easter egg which was very memorable. In our fancy dress class, the overall winner caught the judges eye with her bunny outfit for Roma as you can see. We congratulate Rosalind Hardy and Roma.
All round everyone had a great time , it is always such a pleasure to see so many familiar faces. There are plenty more shows planned out for the year ahead and as always you will be updated well in advance.
As mentioned, the horses are really enjoying the nice weather. Tthey are pampered daily with baths and tail washes, along with a nice sunbathe to dry whilst munching on some hay on the main yard. One of our golden oldies has come back from Petersham Farm where she had a nice holiday in the fields. The kids are so happy to see her again, she had three ready for her arrival with grooming brushes in hand! It’s always a pleasure to have any horse or pony so well known to both staff and clients come back home.
It seems like yesterday we were introducing new arrivals such as Jo Jo, Polo and Silver to the family, however it is coming on a year and boy don’t they know it;. They are all so settled in and have all come on so well in both flat work and jumping. Now the summer is here (fingers crossed) the horses will be taken out competing to local shows which is always great fun and such a great opportunity to show off the hard work done at home.
