Happy Christmas everyone!

Christmas Day is nearly here and all the horses are looking forward to their carrots from Santa!! I definitely feel very 'Christmassy' especially after spending two days at Olympia.

We had not been to a show for a couple of weeks as we were very busy with the newly broken in youngsters so I decided to do Solihull and Onley last Wednesday and Thursday. Most of the jumpers are enjoying a break at the moment so I only took three to the shows. Cindorada won the Newcomers at Solihull and jumped a lovely double clear in the Foxhunter and Athene H jumped a nice clear in the 1.15m open. It was the first time I jumped Athene H in 7 weeks for his new owners.
I jumped 'Irn Bru' who is an 8yr old Irish Gelding in the Blue Chip Karma Qualifier at Onley and he jumped his socks off and came 2nd in a very competitive jump off. His owner Brad Hooker had injured his shoulder badly and could not ride so he asked me to jump him instead. Cindorada jumped a slower clear and also qualified for the final which is held at Hartpury in April.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in 2013. I am looking forward to 2014 as I have a very nice string of horses to campaign.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year. X
