A very soggy 2012!

Poets Corner going round Barbury

Sunday 5th August, 2012

Well not much has been going on due to the weather forcing most of the events to be cancelled. Clattercote stables is however very happy to welcome Chloe Taylor to the team. She has been with us now for the past couple of weeks and seems to have fitted in very well.

We did manage to get a run at Barbury were Poets Corner had his first Novice run where he did a 32.5 dr clear show jumping and clear cross country. He then followed this up at Aston-Le-Walls novice with another fantastic Dr and double clear coming 9th Emma Davis (owner) was very happy and is now looking forward to Purston Novice.

Gold Crusher has also been going well he did his first BE100 at aston-le-walls where he was only just out of the placings. I then dropped him back down to BE90 for Tweseldown as he'd had so long between runs he did another good dressage and double clear, just picking up a few time penalties in both the show jumping and cross country to push him out of the ribbons.

Spring 2012

Saturday 5th May, 2012

I had a fantastic winter Hunting Rosie Riley and Byran last season, all went amazingly. Riley also had ago at team chasing which he loved. Unfortunately he had an accident out hunting so will be unable to event this season but Boughton Vale vets have been fantastic and hopefully he should be ready for the next hunting season and team chasing.

We have got off to a good start eventing this year with Gold Crusher coming 2nd at Aston-le-Wells unaffiliated High Jinx 8th at Tweseldown and Poets corner 10th at Swalcliffe.

We also have a new arrival Tigger a colt foal out of a Tb mare called Friends of Tina and by the stallion Wish Upon a Star. Tina is owned by Helen Jepson.

Denise, who keeps her stallion Kenny at Clattercote, has also been having a good start to the showing season, qualifying for the Royal London and Equifest in just one outing.

Progress with the horses

Daz and I in the yard

Tuesday 23rd August, 2011

All the horses have been going very well over the past couple of months.

Poet's Corner won Weston Lawns prelim Dressage qualifying for their championship in October. Blimey O'Riley also qualified, coming 3rd, so I was very pleased with both of them.

On the Eventing scene Poet's Corner is doing very well coming 5th at Aston-le-Walls 2 BE 90 and then 8th at Aston unaffiliated BE100, which should set him up nicely for Milton Keynes BE90 qualifier for the Badminton Grassroots.

High Jinx has been putting in some good performances as well having done a good Dressage (28) just rubbed a pole in the SJ but clear in the time at Aston 2 (Novice) she was just pushed out of the places. This was rectified though at Aston 3 where she did a lovely double clear and came 5th.

Gold Crusher has done another 4 yr old class at Solihull, where he put up a fantastic performance 33 Dressage and a double clear. Proving to be a lovely straight forward ride. Competition on the day was tough and he was pushed out of the places but hopefully, with a bit of work on the flat, next week at Milton Keynes we'll get him another ribbon.

Spring at last

Riley at his first competition

Thursday 3rd February, 2011

At last we are starting to see the end of winter and the sight of spring.

The horses have been having lot's of fun either on holiday or out hunting. Primative Rose has definitely enjoyed the hunting, taking on every hedge in sight! Byran, a 5 year old I have in to sell, has also been loving the hunting, jumping everything we have come across.

Now the serious work has started with all the horses regularly going out SJ (show jumping) or DR (dressage). High Jinx is looking stunning after her holiday and is happy to be back in full work going to lots of parties we are all very excited about her plans for next year.

Riley, a 6 year old by Harliquin, that I bought over from Ireland at the end of last year is showing much promise for eventing next year. Having been a super star at his first prelim.

I have also gained the ride on Primative Ray an intermediate horse owned by Christine Watts which we are all very excited about and can't wait to get her out competing.

We are all very sad to see Jo Bates leave us at the end of January but wish her the best of luck at her new yard. Jo and Holly (Jo's daughter) will be missed after many years at Clattercote but sure we will all stay in touch for a long time to come yet.

We have also taken on a head Groom, Jane. She is proving very calm and good with the horses that have all taken to her and is making me much more relaxed about life as I know everything will be done how I want!
