This year I am hoping to get Eva out and about to some eventing! While I'm very excited I am also a pessimist. Therefore until Eva and I are trotting up the centre line of the dressage phase will not believe that we are actually doing it. However in saying that, I can be prepared …

I've been wanting to write about equestrian Instagram for a while now but never really settled on how or what aspect of Instagram to focus on. So today I am focusing on how I run my Instagram overall. Personally I really enjoy Instagram, and while I wish my feed was some sort of aesthetically pleasing master …

Last weekend I entered Eva and I in an unaffiliated showjumping competition. I entered us in the 90cm class which was run as a table A7, which means that everyone jumps a round and if clear they go on to a jump off round which is a short course against the clock. Overall I am …

Eva is not a fan of getting clipped. In short she hates being tickled so will barrel over anyone that does anything remotely tickley. A horse was getting clipped on the yard a few weeks ago and she was standing at the back of her stable having a bit of a snort at the whole …
