Pau 4 CCI 4 star 15th October

With a beefed up track and plenty of problems before he set out Tom must have nearly had heart failure when Toleo de Kerser banked the first fence!  It was a bit odd but it’s just yards from the start, in the main arena where the horses ... read more

Osberton International

CCI 1 star cross country was the first thing on the agenda today and sadly Splash of the Irish (Dennis) had a fall at a corner fairly early on which ruled him out of the competition.  Dennis has been incredibly consistent cross country so it ... read more

A great start to Blenheim for Tom with two very smart dressage tests.  Joyride (Wibley) went early in the CCI 3 star draw and scored a very respectable 47 which puts him in 16th spot at the end of two days dressage. Toledo de Kerser is bidding ... read more
