On Tuesday 8th August I set off with Serena to Peterborough to set up base for Equifest as she was competing on Robert for the next three days, the only problem was poor Serena had been up all night with a nasty sickness ‘bug’ so travelling with a ‘sick bowl’ and poorly girl I didn’t think her first Equifest was going to be very successful…….how wrong was I……………………. Wednesday’s weather was horrific…..constant rain throughout the day, however Serena was placed 1st and 2nd in her first two classes which gained her entry into the evening Championship! The floodlit evening performance was a first for Robert and Serena, but Serena led the class into the arena and with little nerves rode beautifully in front of a large crowd to be placed 3rd. Thursday’s class Serena and Robert were placed 7th and despite still not eating anything since Tuesday on the Friday she was placed 2nd and 3rd in her last two classes at Equifest. I couldn’t believe Serena achievements, she gave everything she had so a massive well done to Serena, Robert and a massive thanks to Stephanie Turner for giving Serena the opportunity and supporting her throughout the Season. Serena even made her first appearance on ITV after being interviewed after her first class!
On Saturday 2nd July Sophia and Silver went to GWC showing show and had a great day at a great venue. they came away with two x 2nd rosettes and one x 3rd rosette. Again they looked stunning together with even the judge commenting on how white Sophia’s pony looked. Silver behaved like a superstar and Sophia entred the ring with so much confidence a very proud mummy!! Well done squeeky! x
An amazing start for Trixi. She went to her first ever show on Saturday 1st July at Westerfield run by the Deben Riding Club. So her first class (condition and turnout) she came 1st!!!!! and then her second class (novice horse) she came 1st again!!!!!!
Amazing she looked fabulous and Miri and Trixi have this wonderful relationship which certainly came across in the show ring. So well done Miri and Trixi watch this space one to watch!
Serena is now a real part of ‘Team Turner’, we had a fab day at the ‘Southern Area Show’, it was Serena’s second show on Robert this year and this amazing combination won Supreme Rider of Show….what more can I say!
17th April was the Ipswich Horse Society show at Trinity Park and amazingly this year its wasn’t cancelled because of bad weather, its was cold but the sun was shining a great show to blow away the winter cobwebs. Serena was competing Robert and she had an amazing support group around her so thank you to everyone who came to watch and what a great start to season it was. Serena got place 1st in “first ridden” and 1st in “hunter pony” and came home with her 1st ever Trophy so a very happy little girl and once again a massive thank you to Helen for allowing Serena to compete Robert for her and to Stephanie for training Serena.
