As is often the case the going on the cross country was a million times better than it was in the dressage and the 6 year old track caused few problems for such a classy field.  Sammi and Faerie Magnifico (George) set out at a good gallop and with Sammi's experience an...

Friday morning dawned in a typically "Le Lion" type of way.. cold and misty!  But the rain had cleared again which made riding more pleasant although the ground in the main arena could not be classed as anything other than deep. Not that the organisers could do any mor...

Le Lion d'angers... the World Championships for 6 and 7 year olds....is always a destination event for the best young horses in Europe and further afield with entries from the USA now also on the list.  Sammi was destined to be going in the spring, then destined not to...

Finduss PFB ( Louis) looked magnificent at the jog this morning thanks to Hels who had him literally glinting in the sunshine. We seem to have Boekelo's rain from yesterday here as it simply bucketed it down overnight and pretty much all of the one days in the U K were...

Heading out as pathfinder for the Aussies meant that at least Sammi didn't have to hang around all day....but the downside is that you have no real info on how the course is riding.  There is always added pressure when you are riding for your country in a Nations Cup t...

Still muddy but valiantly heading ahead and Sammi was back with 4 rides at Dauntsey for the Saturday.  To be fair, they were four super rides with lovely young  horses learning their trade and as well all know, there is no one better to teach then that trade than Sammi...

While other events hit the abandon button when the rain starts falling Beanie Sturgess simply concedes that the river is now not an option for the October event as insurance generally doesn't cover drowned riders and horses.  Cancellation is not an option at Dauntsey a...

As the rain set in on Sunday morning we sat in the tent watching the CI4*S cross country and mourned the end of summer!  Direct Tullyoran Cruise ( Tully) had flown through the jog and was cat napping in her stable whilst Hels ministered to her every whim.

Sammi seemed t...

Ed and Charlie joined Sammi for a beautiful Saturday at Blenheim Palace with what surely must be one of the last days of summer.  As crowds poured in through the gates Sammi was pondering her moves around the 4 star cross country track and trying to decide what routes...
