At the end of my last instalment, summer was drawing to a close.  Dudley and & I had made great in-roads to a new partnership together.  We'd had a 3 months together, lots of time spent in flatwork and pole work lessons and we'd managed a show or 2 together and tackled jumping in a way [...]

Back in the Saddle… Adventures

When Tony and I decided that a round of proper show jumps was in order I don't really recall batting an eye-lid.  Putting my head to where I was just a couple of months previously and the idea of jumping then it's a huge change.  It's insane the change. It's not like I've swallowed a book [...]

Back in the Saddle… Flatwork isn’t a horror after all

'When you know, you know...' It's a simple statement that sort of makes no sense really and yet it has the heads of many nodding when they hear it.  It's certainly seems to be applicable as the relationship between myself and Dudley grows.   ♥︎ ♘ ♥︎ He's now been with me for 1 month and [...]

Once upon a time, you went to the saddlery and you'd find a rail with jodphurs and breeches on.   Beige for shows, navy or black for general riding and kicking about.  Breeches for adults you needed a bigger saddlery for.  Brand choices were limited.  It was all super practical and not very pretty or edgy.  [...]
