The last two weekends have been spent at in hand shows with the gorgeous buckskin mare Doylan Cafe Au Lait. So much nicer than last years cold and rain we do however feel the heat standing out in the ring in a waistcoat and flat cap!! Gloriana as shes known has behaved impeccably at her very first shows. She is stunning and has the most fabulous paces. She has been well placed and also won her first trophy yesterday for the riding pony class. Her in hand career will continue until August when she'll be given a break and then ridden on in preparation for next seasons ridden novice classes; we can't wait!! xoxo
We said a fond farewell to Beiligaer Starlight Express yesterday when delivering him to his new home at producers Martin Skelton and Joseph Thurston's yard in Milton Keynes. He has an absolutely top new home and rider and we're so pleased that finally he'll be able to contest the show pony classes. Can't wait to see his pic in Horse and Hound!!
