Off we go again, to Ashfields Carriage Driving Centre.

It was the first show for our new recruit Flo, on the leadrein with Heniarth Shenanigan.  It was also a first for Chelsie Archer who did the leading and what a super job she made of it.  They came 2nd in the class and then got reserve in the Championship!

Next was Carlingfords King in the Novice Ridden Hunter.  We went well and won the class going on to take reserve against all the open horses.  He then jumped in the Novice Worker first time on grass and won the class!  Grandor S came for a jump round the workers and ended up doing the Heavyweight Hunter Class and winning - Qualifying him for RI.

Last of the day was Louise Durdin on her mother Carolines' Playstation.  In the large traditional class, again improving all the time, he was 2nd.

Well done all.


Caroline and I took ourselves off to area 14 at Leatherhead on Saturday with Mano and Poem on board.

Izzy rode really well on the go round and is improving every time.  They got a 5th in the RI class.

Phoebe Blackwell did the 148cm Show Pony class with Rotherwood Manolete and gave a very balanced performance gaining a 2nd place.

Very pleased to announce we have Trenavey Rational Choice back to show this season.  His first time out this season for Kim Colosso proved to be a winning one in the Large Riding Horse class and went on to be Champion.

Next came Izzy Sharifi with Barkway Poem in the first ridden, gaining a credible 2nd place.

Phoebe Blackwell had a successful outing on her mother Elaines' Rotherwood Manolete, winning the Open 14.2 Show Pony class.

Sophie O'Keefe with Furzley Colonnade contested the amateur and junior ponies uk class with a 5th and then a close 2nd - all in the pouring rain!

Well done team!


We began day one with Barkway Poem and Izzy Sharifi gaining a 6th in the First Ridden followed by Beware Chalk Pit with Rebecca Court winning the 13 strong Tattersalls ROR class.

Day two started with Playstation doing his first RI qualifier with Louise Durdin and putting in a good performance for a 5th place.  Next was Kim Goughs' Cwmythan Easter Express competing in his first Olympia semi final pulling off a beautiful show to stand top of the class ridden by Vicki Myronidis.

Phoebe Blackwell rode Rotherwood Manolete to a 2nd place in the Novice Show Pony class followed by another 2nd in the Open Show Pony.

Last but not least was Justine on her own Carlingfords King, contesting in his first ridden class to stand 2nd in the Novice Hunters and taking Reserve Champion.

We had a good day starting with Master Richie in his first Novice Hunter class being ridden by a judge.  He behaved superbly and went up the line to 2nd place.

Next came Andor O, competing for the first time in the Lightweight Hunter class, riding beautifully and qualifying for RI in second place.

Justine then rode Caroline Durdins' The Senator taking 2nd place in the Lightweight Cob class.

Moving on to the RI Coloured classes, Justine rode Louise Durdins' Playstation to win and qualify for RI with a lovely pink sash and Moortown Lucky Strike was drawn top in the Native Horse class - he remained there followed by taking the Championship.
