Horse Mats Plus: A Review

In case you've missed our recent big news - we've moved yards. Our new stable, while HUGE, was concrete based & I'd not thought much about it except that Louie would need a bigger and deeper bed to make it comfortable and supportive for him. However, after a quick bit of research with Andrew, I started to see that adding rubber matting to the floor of the stable had many benefits.

And that's where we discovered Horse Mats Plus!

February Round Up

For once, we’ve had a quiet month. But that hasn’t meant we’ve been able to sit back and relax!

Following a great showjumping lesson at the end of January, working on what we do after the fence, we started putting this into practice right away at home.

Using just two fences on the diagonals creates a quick and simple to set up exercise to help you work on ride away from the fence in balance and in an organised way to make the most of your corners, setting you up in the best way possible for your next fence!

January Round Up

Every month, I always seem to say how much we've been up to... And the starting month to 2018 has been no different!! So busy, I've not even been able to keep up with my blog...

Our first dressage of 2018

January started off with an extra week off work for me, but catching up on some much needed rest, meant there wasn't a lot of time for playing ponies unfortunately... However, we'd entered a BD competition to kick the year off, so spending a week being fairly anxious as to whether the snow & ice would put a stop to it.

6 Picks...of 2017 Posts

Well, here we sit at the end of 2017... & what a year it has been! Our 2017 annual round up post certainly showcased that, but it's not only in yard life that we've been especially busy with the blog...

To put that into context, 2015 & 2016's total blog posts only come to a third of that total...!

Over the course of 2017, I've had some really fun projects to work on including managing to get a quick fire Q&A with Swedish Olympic eventer Ludwig Svennerstal, collaboration with Totally Horse & Pony magazine, the launch of Blogger's Corner and covering increasingly more events that we attend as spectators.

But as my mind turns towards 2018 and what I'd like to do with my blog over the next 12 months, I've ben reviewing our top posts of the last year to see what it is that you all enjoy!

Here's my 6 picks of my 2017 blog posts...
