Firstly, what a week for British Showjumping!
It was genuinely unbelievable to watch the boys win the Nations Cup and that second round of John Whitaker’s was something else! Complete and utter brilliance 🤩
Then for Rob to win the King George on the lovely 10yo Vermento was so cool too - we have a yearling colt by him out of MGH Candy Girl!! Eeeekkkkk!! 🫢
I was incredibly lucky to be asked to ride for the BRENDON STUD.
First up was Pandito Merelsnest Z, (WiFi) a REALLY lovely 8yo stallion. We competed in the International 1* 8yo classes and I have only been riding him a week! We had some brilliant rounds and qualified for the final with some very big jumps. We had one green rail in a double but we were all so thrilled with how he went. What a future he has. Love him ❤️

Our lovely Dime Bar was 2nd in a 1.35m and then had a go at the Queen Elizabeth Cup! What an absolute honour to compete in such a historic class.
Unfortunately he was a bit tense and worried and so had some mistakes at the beginning of the round but that’s horses for you and especially such a sensitive boy - we both learnt a lot!

7yo stallion Klent Spot On was 2nd and qualified for the newcomers final at the September show, AND 4yo stallion - Gins Bud (yes I rode a 4yo) did some lovely educational, no pressure rounds getting him ready for Bolesworth young horse show!

A super busy week, but our brilliant teams from home and from Brendon Stud made it happen!! What a lucky girl I am! ☺️

We had a very busy week but totally loved every second of it.
We had some fab results with our own team, with Cinsey Blue PS qualifying for the B and C final in the main ring, just having one green rail in the final.
She was also the best 7yo in a very decent 6/7yo class to qualify for the final at the September show.
Our young event horses, Cooley Couture, Cooley Park Muse and Chilli King put in some super rounds too!
I did one of my all time favourite classes - the Eventers GP with Santiago Bay and Flash Cooley this year🏇🏿💨
As always it was a brilliant and very exciting class!!
Santiago Bay put in a brilliant and very fast round unfortunately adding 2 rails near the end and Flash Cooley, as defending champion, was last to go and flashed his way around until his stupid jockey asked him for a long one at the last. He wasn’t so keen so we rather went through it as a complete (rude word) up!!! We finished 2nd and 3rd which was a great result but I was very cross with myself!

A double podium finish in The Ashby Underwriting Eventers Challenge at Hickstead

It was a fantastic afternoon for Gemma and her two entries in the The Ashby Underwriting Eventers Challenge at the Royal International Horse Show, Hickstead this afternoon, finishing 2nd with Cooley Park Muze and 3rd with Santiago Bay.

Drawn 5th to go on Santiago Bay (Kizzy) Gemma set a great pace around the track, setting the time to beat of 130.52.

Gemma held the top spot until 15th drawn Fred Scala shaved just over a second off of Gemma's time, crossing the line in 128.84.

Last to go was Gemma and her second ride, Cooley Park Muze who finished half a second behind Fred, in a time of 129.59 seconds.

On the road to CHIO Aachen

So excited to be CHIO Aachen bound with the two superstars, Flash Cooley who is heading over for the Nations Cup and Santiago Bay for the Ride and Drive!

Got to get my Eventing hat back on this week after a few fantastic weeks showjumping but I can’t wait to get stuck in!

With us travelling so many different horses to so many different places around the world, we genuinely don’t know what we would do without our amazing WeatherBeeta UK kit (

The travel kit is just so brilliant with heaps of choices for all types of weather - we’ve chosen this lightweight micro air cooler for the special two this week - just to keep the chill off their backs but as it’s so warm it also means they don’t get too hot or sweaty.

Weatherbeeta have supported me for as long as I can remember, and it really does make all the difference knowing that our horses are so comfortable when they are travelling the world!
