So, I’ve been MIA for quite a while, but I’m finally getting myself motivated again. Jumped the three horses for the most of last summer, then retired Tizzy the end of last year, she’s 20 now so thought it was time to give her a break! Also gave Stuart & Elvis a break over the winter, so we’re just getting back into the swing of things again!

Yesterday we had the Riding Club Regional Qualifiers for the Team Show Jumping Championships which will be held at the RDS in August. There were 20 teams taking part representing Riding Clubs from all over the region.

I was jumping Elvis and he jumped two lovely clear rounds for me, although he was a bit overenthusiastic at some of the fences!  Our team finished on a total of 4 faults and in 2nd place, so we now have to jump in a Wild Card competition at the Riding Clubs Festival in Stradbally in June to see if we can get the last qualifying spot.

  1. Weee Elvis has some spring action alright. Welcome back to the blogosphere & the saddle. I’m sure your boys’ll bounce back refreshed from the time off and can’t wait to follow your progress through the summer & your quest for the RDS ☺☺☺
    Will Tizzy get to be a mama again; are you thinking of making more Stuarts?
