Samantha to ride at National convention.

Samantha is going to to ride at The  National Dressage convention this weekend.
She is working for Carl Hester and he ¬†asked her to ride Golly (Dancing With Wolves) in his part of his demonstration. This is the horse that Carl won the Inter I and PSG titles with at this years Nationals! ¬†Samantha rode Pascal there last year, so to ride there two years running is amazing. Hope it goes well Samantha…do us proud!

Samantha gets a golden opportunity!

Samantha was recently offered a job with Carl Hester for a couple of weeks while one of his grooms were on holiday. It went so well she was asked to stay! She is involved with all mucking out, grooming, putting horses on horse walker, leading Valegro, (who doesn’t go on the walker), tack cleaning and the best bit riding! She gets the horses ready and warms them up for Carl. Being able to ride such wonderful horses she is a very lucky girl!
¬†Meanwhile Pascal has gone to Hartbury college, (after having had 6 weeks off work with a heel strain) to work on the water treadmill. ¬†Samantha can go and see him as he is very close to Carl’s and hopefully if all goes well he will ¬†join her in January.
We do miss having her at home with us in the yard but this is a job not to turn down!
