Well hello, So … firstly I cannot begin to explain how inspirational the ladies in our team are! I’m sure if you’ve read the earlier team wimpy blogs you’ll all agree … and I’m lucky enough to have these fab ladies on hand 24/7 each time I have a wobble! I met some of our... Continue Reading →
What a long way these ladies have come so far, I cannot tell you how proud I am of them all. The support they offer one another in the private group is like nothing I have ever seen, show days are my favourites as they all come together and support each - isn't that what... Continue Reading →
Some time ago I received a message, from a lovely lady asking for my address so that she could invite me to something very special. I obliged of course! (Who wouldn’t!?) Now, the invite came and it was a big surprise, The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon invite you to a special day at Highclere... Continue Reading →
I'm not sure... Days go by where I'm not overly sure where I'm going in life, what I do for a living or what I'm making for tea! I feel a bit in limbo again. So this time last year I was toying with leaving my full time job as Marketing Manager for a large... Continue Reading →
Being part of the blogging scene at Haynet (an equestrian bloggers paradise), some of us equestrian bloggers in the world signed up for a VLOGGING challenge this month.

What a weekend!! Let’s start from Wednesday night where the plans to run through my Novice and Elementary tests for Sunday were planned. I left the office, grabbed my breeches from the car and strolled over to get changed. One leg in, two legs in, yank on the too tight breeches… TWANG!!!! My lower back... Continue Reading →
Well that's is... My feet are wet, I've jumped in with them both! In actual fact, it's not my feet that are wet, it's my palms and my forehead, I'm sat at my desk looking at last years course photos, already choosing the one I might die at. With any luck I'll get balloted anyway... Continue Reading →
So, a bit of a sorry state of affairs after my run of cast iron balls activities. First off, I was massively on the up after my ‘mock hunting’ experience so thought this would make day to day riding, clinics and popping a small fence in the school a doddle. With the right mind set,... Continue Reading →
A little delayed reply as I wanted to see whether I survived this weekend or whether my poor husband was drafting up my premature headstone. A few updates on the cards; NO.1 – I had the almightiest of meltdowns at the beginning of this month, I was scared, tired, and dealing with a few personal... Continue Reading →
