Camphire Sunday

Three cross country rounds for Tom to kick off the day and yet again it was Brookfield Benjamin Bounce who took the top honours! A clear in time was good enough to equal Kevin McNab’s score as both horses finished on their dressage score… sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it does not and… Read more »

Camphire Saturday

Busy busy Team McEwen today with the three young horses in the CI3*S all showjumping first thing and all three of them moving up the leaderboard which was a great start to the day. Bob Chaplin ( Bob) showed his class with a lovely clear that saw him ride up into 5th, Brookffield Benjamin Bounce… Read more »

Camphire Dressage ( Friday)

Just two tests for Tom today and he and the lovely Bob Chaplin ( Bob) cruised into 10th spot in the very popular CI3*S class with a 29.4.  Bob is very talented and has been produced well so no doubt this is the start of a long and happy relationship…everyone still misses the Barker’s super… Read more »

Aston Le Walls

Dreamaway… Read more »

Upton House

The full compliment of 5 horses for Tom to ride at Upton House on Wednesday and with another sunny day it was slightly inevitable that the ground was on the firm side which meant steady runs for the whole crew.  It’s quite understandable at this time of year but what was disappointing was that last… Read more »

Barbury Saturday

A day of CI3*S for Tom with three to showjumping and go cross country in two full sections.  The main arena was running all day with showjumping and the cross country was still running strong at 6.30pm.  Great weather and a testing track made for good viewing on one of the best spectator venues in… Read more »

Barbury Castle Thursday/ Friday

Summer has stayed on into July for Barbury which is awesome as Barbury in the wind and rain is just horrible! The new layout which the team at Muskateer have worked on is brilliant and very reminiscent of the original plan back in 2005 when it launched with one exception….and massive improvement….as all the classes… Read more »
