I guess having been in her brothers company now for 12 months, it was only a matter of time before his stories of how wonderful the ladies at Avonvale Equine are led her to giving herself a holiday at the vets! I last wrote about Twiglet when I shared her first event report with you… Continue reading The Project Pony: A holiday at the vets…
I thought it was about time I updated you all on where we are in our journey, as last time I wrote about this I was not in a good place. When I read back over that post I remember how desperate I was feeling, and how absolutely terrified I was, I may not have… Continue reading Our Kissing Spine Journey: A realisation
Winter hoof care... we all know how important it is to keep our horses feet in tip top condition.

That maybe I could have done more, maybe worked harder, noticed things… Continue reading Our Kissing Spine Journey… Breaking Point.

Ah, the great sport of eventing. The discipline of the dressage, the skill of the Show Jumping and the thrill of the Cross Country. Beautiful scenary, the perfectly athletic horse directed by their incredibly brave riders through the ultimate equestrian test, a truly wonderful sport to be a part of. But how many of us… Continue reading Giving a Little Back: Volunteering in Eventing
Wow... I cannot believe the whirlwind this blog has been.
