Welcome to Jodhpurs Riding Centre

Dressage arena Monica competing Trophies

Well as you can see it has been quite a while since i updated my diary,i am now 23 years old and ave been out competing this year already, yaaay at last.
I did the jodhpurs veteran class first and was so excited i couldn't contain my enthusiasm, so i do apologise to my rider Mikki for Bucking her off in the warm up arena, and to the other people in the arena for galloping up and down.
My mum took me out after that to Askham Bryan , it was a very cold snowy day but i did ok i won my class.
I am out again on Saturday 10th Feb with Mikki, so i will try and behave and get her another red rosette.
And then the next day i am out with mum doing an elementary test, i hope she can remember it. !!
As Radar is on box rest i am getting ridden 5/6 times a week now, plenty of oats and i am feeling rather well.
Will let you know how the weekend goes x

23rd November 2014.

Well today was veterans dressage day and once again i didn't get chance to compete even though i am 19 years old, and a veteran myself, my mother is useless, of course she is a veteran herself, i am sure she won't mind my telling everyone !!

It was a lovely day with horses and ponies ranging from15 years up to 25 years old, and the youngest rider Imogen was only 5 years old, again the more mature ponies and horses were looking after their young riders.
 Well nearly all as just as Claire was unloading Tiger Lily the dogs at the kennels started to bark, and Tiger Lily thought she was going HUNTING !!! needless to say poor Helena Wills had her hands full in the dressage test but still managed a 3rd place.

My mum said it was lovely to see all the oldies going round not having to compete with those young supple athletic looking young ones, in fact she said it looked a little bit like an Equine Tea Dance and everyone had a smile on their face, well maybe not Helena in the first test, but Tiger Lily sure had.

So let's bring it on for the oldies, more veteran Tea dances please.
Can i have a go in the next one please Mum !!!

Monica's Diary

Welcome to my diary...
Here you can learn about everything I've been up to.
Make sure you visit regularly and keep up to date
I would like to say how well our riding school horses  and clients did in the dressage competition last week.
Dan was ridden by Sue Orchard and they came 2nd in the intro with the same score as mum on Zaffron.
Rocky was 5th with Iain samuel, this was Iains first attempt at a dressage competition and he came away with a 5th rosette.
Mum did well on Zaffron, she was a little bit tense ( zaffron not mum) Mum went h/c as she normally rides me at a higher level.

And i did a fabulous test, one of my best actually, everybody said so, i was first in the elementary with 73% my mum was so pleased with me,i wonder when she is going to take me out competing again, i do miss it !!!

watch this space it might be soon as she will have Tuesday's free and i know Manor Grange have some BD on Tuesday's.
