Thank you for coming to read this. I’m on a little mission again.
The horse I rode in the Hickstead Derby, Envoy Merelsnest Z (Dime Bar) is very sadly for sale.
He is only a 10yo so has plenty more fun years ahead of him. He’s an absolute sweetheart of a horse, very gentle and kind.
You can find out more about Dime Bar on his profile here:
We’ve struck up such a great relationship together in a very short space of time, and jumped some very big tracks!
The aim would be to compete in as a many big shows and Derbys as we can fit in, which could be such a fun thing for people to be involved in. He would be the sort of horse that could jump in all the big GPs and world ranking classes, plus Derbys and even maybe puissance’s.
There is plenty to still improve on, and he will be very easy to pick up around our Eventing schedule.
So if any of you or if you know if anyone that could be interested in a share in him then please let me know.
You can contact me directly on:
The Brendon Stud boys were pretty awesome this weekend! Thank god because Eventing this year seems pretty tricky! 🌧️🌧️
We started the weekend on plan, jumping (and coming 2nd) in the 1.40M Handicap at Pyecombe on the Brendon Stud's lovely stallion Pandito Van't Merelsnest Z (Wifi)
We then set sail to Gatcombe on Saturday morning with Flash Cooley, Chilli King and Ophelie Van Prinseveld for the OI.
We enjoyed our rainy drive down the M4 for 3.5 hours to find out the rain had taken it's toll on the ground and the class had been abandoned.
So sorry to all organisers and everyone involved, it’s so much hard work and also Gatcombe is one of the absolute BEST events. Such a shame. Yet again another event cancelled due to weather!
We then managed to turn around in the gateway and cause utter carnage because I was absolutely not going to get stuck!!
I’m going jumping!
So, off to Pyecombe we go to jump the 5 Bar Challenge with the Brendon Stud's other lovely stallion, Envoy van't Merelsnest Z (Dime Bar) He was a super star and won the class!
Then yesterday Klent Spot On (Kung Foo) was 3rd on the boss's orders in the Foxhunter and Wifi and Dime jumped unreal in the summer GP for 1st and 2nd. Such good boys.
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!
