The Scottish Equestrian by Thescottishequestrian - 1w ago

The Scottish Equestrian by Thescottishequestrian - 2w ago

The week before Wednesday night we had a lesson, it had certainly been a while since we had one, and Eva and I did need a bit of a nudge - read "kick up the ass" - in the right direction as I was descending back in to the habit of doing everything. And Eva [...]

It has been a whole 5 years since a bought Eva! It was the shy, quiet, gental creature that drew me to her ..... Pfft who am I kidding! It was the "Go on make me" attitude that caught my eye along with the feel of untapped potential in her jump. 5 years on and [...]

Here we are the start of summer, and for this summer I am hoping to do a fair amount of going out and about. I need a plan of action not only because I need to make sure I learn the right dressage tests and Eva is fit enough but also from a financial side [...]

On a bit of a whim I decided to enter Eva in to the 90cm class of a showjumping competition on the yard. I hadn't ridden Eva much that week as I was still very much on the high of doing our first ODE. Obviously Eva is now in ok shape now and with that [...]

We did it! Our first one day event! And her feet? Absolutely fine the ground was perfect for her not too hard or too soft. Granted the dressage felt a bit slippy and the jumping I protected her round because I didn't want us fly round and slipping but nothing that was sore for her [...]

ABANDONED CANCELLED CALLED OFF DROPPED OH THE SHAME Sorry perhaps I'm being a little dramatic. While I watched others on Instagram celebrating their first outing of the year in lovely weather, up here in Scotland the rain continued and it won. As you can see the showjumping warm up arena was looking more like a …
