This week we had some little helpers around the stables! Sokkull was perfectly behaved with them when they brushed him and led him to the round pen – He is still for sale!
We are home from the WC2015 held in Herning, Denmark with lots of good Team GB memories and pictures in our minds of amazing tolting horses! The horses have been resting since they got back and are all very happy. We had a great time at the WCs, Team GB was fun to be in and some of the team riders made some new records!
Mike and Kafteinn were looking good leading up to their competition but unfortunately lost a shoe in the F1 so didn’t do as well as hoped. Andrew had some issues with Hafeti in the F1 but managed to outdo himself on the pace test and speed pace, increasing his times as he went!
Jemimah and Kraftur did not do as well as hoped in the V1, however ending up somewhere in the middle of the field but the T1 went a little better and they managed to end in the top 20 in the seniors which was a personal goal. Kraftur also featured in the WC2015 programme and in adverts broadcast throughout the week!
We’d like to thank our grooms, Elizabeth, Aidan and Kirsty for their support and for keeping the stable and horses clean and tidy at all times! We’d also like to thank all the companies that supported us in the GB Team – NAF, Selwood Equine, Westgate EFI, KeyFlow, Horseplay, Bakkeholm and Casco. Their support made a huge difference.
