It is definitely time reflect on what an amazing year it has been for us here and to think of our New Year Resolutions ready to come out all guns blazing in 2019.
There have been so many highlights including, getting back into affiliated eventing and not coming home empty handed either and Ben pony’s showing career really kicking off. I think it could be considered to be one of the most successful years I’ve had (definitely in recent years) even with the limited amount of competitions we have competed in we have still managed to gain rosettes at nearly every event.
Planning has begun for next year and I am already eagerly anticipating the coming of lighter nights and of course the beginning of the event season. Here’s hoping we might even get Ben pony back out doing what he does best!
Hunting season is already in full swing and I have enjoyed multiple days out with the Ledbury on both Cadbury and Polly, and of course, jumping some rather decent sized hedges regardless of my ponies size! Most recently Polly had a quick spin round a couple of show jumping classes at Hartpury just to keep her eye in and she was certainly on springs. Polly and Ben Pony have enjoyed their little break from serious training and competing and are now both back in full work… a little bit fatter, fluffier and more excitable!
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
