Something I hope will help me in my Coaching/Teaching and even help me in my competitions was to study during the early part of this year and I have just heard that I successfully passed the Centre 10 Applied Psychology for Equestrian Coaches Foundation Course-Its been really interesting and in October 2020 I start the Advanced Programme!
Obviously a slow start to competing this year but July has bought us back to “normality” and competitions are opening up again- so I took Springsteen to Hunters and with a very green Inter 11 test but was very pleased with my lockdown training and achieved 63.9% so its onward and upward now to my my Grand Prix goal
A great result yesterday with Berrifield Stuntman (Springsteen) claiming the Inter 1 Gold Regional title with over 68% and qualifying for the BD National Championships at Stoneleigh in September 2019- had such a great year with him result wise so this is the icing on the cake to finish 2019
Springsteen was on fire and posted a new PB for his Premier League campaigns in 2019 at the Festival of Dressage- he came 5th overall with 68.8% and then on day 2 came 5th again in a very strong Inter 1 class with 67.8% – showing much more quality in the work with a greater degree of collection which the foreign judges liked- super result and worth all the extra work we are giving him like the water tread mill once a week at Lambourn and lessons with Carl Hester complimenting his regular trainer Roland Tong
Competing in the sunshine, whats not to like when you produce a clear round and 8th place with Springsteen 67.8% at Addington Premier League
A super start to my 2019 season with a 6th place in the Inter 1 test at Addington HP show on Springsteen today- a nice fault free test in the sunny weather competing against the great Charlotte Dujardin who showed us how it should be done! Just the boost you need in the middle of winter and a reminder that the hard work never stops…. thanks also to my super trainer Roland Tong for all his help
Exciting developments for 2019 include our new Super star horse called Frankie who we will show case at Young Horse Premier League Classes as a 5 yr old and visit us on Facebook to hear up to the moment results with Springsteen who I hope will contest Inter 11 level competition..Happy Christmas and 2019 to all clients and friends
Springsteen has had a really good competition season- in June and July got good scores At Wellington and Hartpury Premier Leagues- July saw us at Bicton Regionals coming 5th at Inter 1 level and then we had major fun at the Midway Championships again at Hartpury where we won the Inter 1 and Inter 1 music with 70% scores. September was a qualifying month for the 2019 Regionals and lastly November saw us come 5th at the BD Small tour Championships at Keysoe with an overall 69%- what a year!!
What a year Natalie kayal and DHI Homerun have had so far but now secured their place at the BD National Championships in September with a 1st place in the Inter 1 with a whopping 73.2%- their win here at Bury farm in a big class confirms the great progress made this year by the pair- she is already qualified at PSG-
A SUPER day at Summerhouse for Jacky Baird who has trained with me for some time in her first affiliated Novice 23 with a super 68.3% riding her own Toby- Jacky has competed this year in team Quest but is looking forward to gaining qualification for the area festivals-
I also had a good day with berrifield Stuntman, who despite making a few mistakes got a respectable 65.2% in his second PSG
WOW, another stunning performance by Natalie Kayal last week end at her 3rd International , this time Deauville in France where she achieved 68.4% in the PSG, 68.5% in the Inter 1, and 69.2% in the Inter1 kur and then got a fab write up from BD – she is on top form and so is Jo Jo!
