It was a very successful trip to Little Downham today and I think for the first time ever I managed to win two advanced sections in the same day, with the added bonus of not having to go too fast either!   Navigator led from the start to win h...

It was quite an extraordinary climax to Burghley today with the show jumping course causing even more trouble than normal.  Parklane Hawk hung on to his 3rd place despite rolling two poles and secured me my second HSBC FEI Classics title.  ...

Seacookie came out feeling really good in the warm up today at Burghley but unfortunately as soon as I jumped out the start box it became clear he wasn’t enjoying the ground on course and really wasn’t feeling himself.  He had a seri...

I was very happy with Parklane Hawk’s test today and he has gone into equal 4th on a score of 41.0 in what is a very tight leaderboard. He did a lovely test overall and considering he had been a little bit excited all week, knowing exactly whe...

I was very pleased this morning with how Seacookie performed.  He was very well behaved and stayed relaxed despite the rain.  One of his flying changes was a little unsettled and he got a bit stuck in his pirouette.  He scored 46.5 and...
