Good day to you all. Wow what a change int he weather! I can not believe that last week I was out in the sunshine, no rug on and enjoying rolling to remove all that loose coat. This week I am now well rugged up and being attacked by random snow storms.

To all those eventers, how has your event season gone so far. I can not believe they had to cancel Stilemans! Terrible news to hear of the loss of the french rider Amelie Cohen at Fontainebleau in France. The eventing game is a high risk sport as we all know, however we still most look in to providing further safety.

Always keep your safety gear up to the standard and if you have a fall always replace that hat. I know they are fairly expensive to replace, however they do save many from severe brain damage.

Have you found a stallion for your mare this year? stallionsatstud has some great stallions being advertised.

Well have we seen an end to this rain? I am fed up of being knee deep in mud and water. Some of the March outdoor events around here have had to be cancelled and I was hoping to do some XC soon.

I think I must have embarrassed my mother this weekend. We attended a eventers challenge at a local RC, the course had loads of scary fences and lots of spooky things. I had been at the show about 2 hours before I went in to my class and I was starving. We jumped the course with 1 refusal at a double. After the 11th fence I was filling hungry, we came around to a corner fence that was also an arrow head. Any way either side of the fence had shrubbery, I went to jump it and then elected last min to stop and have a munch (Well they should not put this temptation in front of me!) After a couple of munches my mum managed to turn me around and approach the jump again. This time I cleared it in style. We did end up getting eliminated at the last fence which involved a scary water tray. Four strides out I had decided there was no way I was getting to hooves wet and put on the brakes.
