Dressage Competition Report - 02/12/2017

Earlier this week, I took the plunge to re-affiliate my membership to British Dressage and joined Louie up for the first time. I'd managed to find time in my work schedule to take a long weekend, so thought a Saturday dressage competition was a great way to spend one of the days!!


After all of the wet weather we have had over the last week, I wasn't looking forward to bathing, and working back from our first test time, I was due to start washing at about 8am. So I thought I'd try something a bit different - washing his tail and legs the evening before. With the icy conditions outside, I opted for the "warmth" of the barn, using buckets of warm water and a sponge brush. Thankfully, Andrew was on hand to keep us topped up on clean water. After a quick towel dry, I bandaged all four legs for the night. I knew that the fronts would be fine, but wasn't sure whether I'd find some stains on his back legs where he had pooped through the night.

November Round Up


I don't think I ever sit down to write one of these reports and struggle for content... Ever month seems to be jam packed with activity and days out.

November was full of training sessions, both on the flat and jumping, as well as a dressage competition at a local venue. We've shared our favourite Instagram accounts, why we think Premier Equine make the best winter rugs and our riding ambitions as part of November's blog hop!

So read on to take a flick through the month in full...

Equestrian Blogger of the Year 2017: Roosa's Horsey Life

One month ago today, the Equestrian Blogger of the Year 2017 was announced. Judged by the lovely ladies at Mirror Me PR and Haynet, Roosa's Horsey Life was crowned the winner! In my opinion, a very deserving winner... Not only running a very personable and real blog, Roosa's social media follows her and her gorgeous horses in their daily life in Finland.

As the 2016 winner of the award, I wanted to catch up with Roosa following the winner and ask her a few quick questions about her blog, winning the title and what plans she has for the upcoming months. So, grab that hot drink, curl up and enjoy a quick-fire Q&A with Roosa's Horsey Life!

(& don't forget to head over to Roosa's blog at the end and take a read of my guest Q&A post with her too!!)

November's Equestrian Blog Hop

The third instalment of the monthly Equestrian Blog Hop! Make sure you take a flick through all of the other bloggers at the bottom of this post also talking about...



What is our riding ambition?


The last near enough three years have taught me that the ambition of just having fun and doing whatever you enjoy with your equine partner is the most important aspect... At the end of the day, most of us are amateurs with very busy lives away from the stable. So why do we all seem to fall into the trap of putting pressure on ourselves?

Dressage Competition Report - 19/11/2017

On a cold but beautiful Sunday morning, we headed up to local venue Alnwick Ford Equestrian for our first dressage outing for a LONG time...since way back in September in fact!!


Enjoying a relaxing hack out the afternoon before in the fading autumnal cool sunshine without the pressure of getting ready the night before was a bonus. With both tests after 12 noon on the Sunday, I decided to wash Louie's socks and tail, and plait on the morning.

With the handy help of hot water, I was able to get Louie's socks & tail fairly white on the morning, before plaiting. I must be VERY out of practice because it seems to take a very long time & unusually I found it really difficult to get tight plaits into the thicker part of his mane... πŸ˜³ Still, at least Louie could stand & enjoy a massage with his Equilibrium pad on for longer!

We were soon ready for the off, so away we went...all of us wrapped up like Michelin men!!!

Premier Equine Winter Rugs



So, over the last two years, I've become a bit of a fanatic for Premier Equine rugs, especially for the cooler months of the year.

Why do I love Premier Equine rugs?

  • Accurate sizing
  • Deep cut - around the shoulders & in length
  • Quality of product
  • Variety of styles, weights & durability 
  • Quick delivery

I didn't used to have much loyalty to any particular brand of rug so long as it was a good fit and suited the purpose. Over the last 10 years, I've had many different brands of rugs - Weatherbeeta, Horsewear, Kingshead, Masta... But thanks to a super Premier Equine Black Friday sale in 2015, I took Louie from the twice passed down rugs he was using & upgraded him to a stable, turnout and rug liner.

6 Picks... of Instagram

I ❤️ Instagram!

OK, so who else doesn't enjoy seeing fabulous photos of horses of all breeds, all disciplines, from all over the world?!

I follow almost 1,200 accounts on Instagram across a broad mix of content, but A LOT of them are equestrian related! So I thought I'd pick my top six for you to all enjoy too - hopefully there's some new one for you to enjoy!

October Round Up


October started off with a real πŸ’₯BANGπŸ’₯

We headed out to Alnwick Ford Equestrian in Northumberland to go showjumping. Louie's taken a lot of hard work to find his own confidence with the showjumping, but recently he's been flying. Enjoying the jumping and sticking to his rhythm!

We entered the smallest classes - 50cm & 60cm - as this venue is really good at building mini fences rather than lead rein cross poles. It's up to height with fillers, planks and ladders all included meaning that horses can get used to these elements while building up their confidence.

My aim for the classes was to keep a rhythm and give Louie a confidence giving round. I never expected for it to go so well...

Blogger's Corner: The Secret that is...StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon...There seems to be a secret minority split of bloggers that really know about the power of StumbleUpon & how it can be a fantastic source of relevant and quality traffic.

Like all social networks, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. AND, the more self promotion you do, the less you'll get from it.


StumbleUpon is a platform discovery tool - its purpose is to put your content in front of users who have expressed an interest in your posts' categories. It primarily uses two signals for this - a simple checkbox system that a user manual chooses, and then the second is the way that user interacts with content they discover. It learns what you do and don't like through its thumbs up / thumbs down system.

British Showjumping Academy Training


How many of us are fortunate enough to have access to true high quality, experienced coaching?


For me, quality coaching is a given as part of my training routine, and is one of the higher monthly costs I have to owning a horse.

How many of us use an accredited coach, who is insured & regularly takes check on developing their coaching techniques?


But I see so many people opting for non-qualified, inexperienced and crucially, uninsured coaches... We take part in an already dangerous enough sport, so do we need the added complexity of someone on the ground trying to "add value" to our efforts which in reality cause longer term issues or put both the horse & rider in potential danger...

Equestrian Blogger of the Year 2017



I am super proud and thrilled to have been shortlisted in the Equestrian Blogger of the Year 2017 final, nominated by Haynet and MirrorMePR!! 

Whether you're a first time reader or a regular visitor to our blog, I really hope you enjoy sharing my journey with Louie in training, competition and everyday yard life. If you do, it would be FANTASTIC if you can give my blog a vote: https://s.surveyplanet.com/SySrs0gpZ

Voting takes a matter of moments - and is done in 3 simple steps!

Getting to know #HorseHour's Founder, Amy Frost!

Over the last 12 months, I've enjoyed tuning into the many and varied podcasts created by #HorseHour. #HorseHour originally started on a Monday evening on Twitter between 8pm & 9pm every week. The hashtag (#HorseHour) provides a great base for equestrians worldwide to interact with one another, share their content & engage overall with like minded people in a dedicated time.

I recently reached out to founder of #HorseHour to find out about what is stands for and why Amy created. More interestingly, I was curious to understand the podcast's creation and the direction in which it was going.

Amy has very kindly agreed to guest blog on Team Tunnah Eventing to answer some of the questions that I had burning!!

One of My Most Proud Moments...

Today, I had one of my most proud moments with Louie.

We headed out showjumping to the fantastic Alnwick Ford Equestrian to jump around two of their unaffiliated classes. After a few busy weeks of dressage in August and at the start of September, I was pleased that we didn't need to be plaited nor be a contender for the 'Daz Doorstep Challenge'! However, I obviously couldn't go with a yellow tail and socks, so the day before I gave Louie a quick hose down after a long morning hack before popping him back in the field.

Back to showjumping...

September Round Up


The met office predicted an Indian summer in September... The month started off in a very different way, with temperatures falling, more rain & wind that we'd seen in the last few months, and of course, it is the first month of Autumn.

Following a dressage focused August, we kicked off September with a brilliant show jumping training session. The last time we had jumped in early July, it hadn't gone to plan, and I quickly found out that Louie's saddle was pinching. So, armed with a brand new saddle, we headed off excitedly for a jump training session with Philippa.

Blogger Review: Horse Addict

First up, what a great concept by Mathilde from Passion For Horse for all the members of the Equestrian Bloggers Facebook group to review a blog, and tell our audiences why we think they have such a great blog!! In short the concept puts all the blogs into the mix, and draw one for you to review, meaning that everyone is review and also gets the chance to make their own review of another too...


I was drawn to review Anne Leueen and her blog Horse Addict. This is a fairly new blogger for me to follow, and I discovered it when Anne post her introduction to the group on Facebook. Anne has something similar to me in that she gave up her love of riding when she went to university - fortunately for me, I managed to get back into it right afterwards, whereas Anne started back up at 50. Today, Anne enjoys dressage with her ginger Hanoverian gelding, Biasini!

Q&A with Diary of a Wimpy Eventer & Allstar Academy pupil, Victoria Brant!


Earlier this year, we all tuned into Horse & Country TV to enjoy the second series of the Blue Chip Allstar Academy! The first series provided some great viewing, enjoying watching the riders and horses being put through their paces both under saddle and on the ground...

Just before the series kicked off, we were lucky enough to catch up with Tina Wallace who was about to feature on the show with her horse, Banksy. But also starring on the show was Victoria Brant, who most of you will know from her ever popular Facebook page and blog, Diary of a Wimpy Eventer.

I started following Victoria on Facebook long before the show, and always enjoyed reading her updates. One thing that always struck me about her was her get up and go, positive outlook on pretty much everything... Since the show, Victoria has been able to leave her marketing 9-5 job, setting up on her own as a consultant, as well as launching her own books prior to the show!!

I felt Victoria was someone that most people could complete relate to - I'm a bit of a wimpy eventer myself, always on the hunt for a pair of brave pants that will fit... I also work in marketing, and have often pondered how & when you know you have the support to get up and turn your 9-5 employment into your own business. I also try to always keep my blog content very real to who I am, being honest and genuine in my posts which is something that I think Victoria has stayed true to throughout her impressive recent growth.

So sit back, grab a cuppa and enjoy our quick catch up with the fantastically positive, Victoria Brant!!

September's Equestrian Blog Hop


During August, Heather Wallace of Bridle & Bone introduced the idea of a blog hop to the Equestrian Bloggers Facebook group, and I'm pleased to be taking part in the first ever one!!

What is a blog hop?

In very simple terms, it is a group of bloggers who all post at the same time on the same topic, all with completely unique perspectives. Using a linky list, visitors can literally hop from one blog to another, discovering new content, new bloggers and new opinions along the way. So make sure you check out all of the great bloggers that are choosing to take part this month - their links can be found at the bottom of this post.



September's Topic: Why Did I Start Blogging?

A Positive Spin on the Autumn Equinox

Today marks the Autumn Equinox, which you're all probably more than aware of!


So why am I blogging about it? Well, I think one thing that all equestrians have in common is the dreaded 'w' word, as well as the mornings & evenings getting darker.

It's only last week that Louie & I were enjoying hacks out until 7.30/8pm, and that it was light enough at 6.20am to take him up to the field. This week, I'm struggling to fit an hours hack in on an evening and Louie is waiting to out on a morning until after I've mucked out.

But don't get too depressed about those cold, dark nights drawing in! Instead, look at it this way!

Quickfire Q&A with Samantha Hobden, founder of Hay-Net.co.uk


Many equestrian bloggers will already be familiar with Hay-Net.co.uk, but it's not only for bloggers. Anyone interested in finding out the latest news, top blog and product reviews can head over to the site for a daily round up of all that's going on in the equestrian blogging world.

I first started using Hay-Net.co.uk about 18 months ago, both as a way to share my blog post, but to also discover other equestrian bloggers from around the world with all sort of different interests in all things equestrian. Today, the site has branched out a little further into the countryside living, recently awarding Sophie in the Sticks as Country Style Blogger of the Year 2017.

Equine Physio & Rider Balance with Lee Clark

I'm a big believer in equine physio sessions. Some people aren't and ask why I have a session for Louie every 6 months when I don't do the same for me. My answer is simple - Louie can't tell me his aches and when he's a bit stiff or sore. We all know that muscle ache feel that we get when we've gone a harder session in the gym, or when we've used a muscle we don't usually...

So for me, equine physio is as important as the farrier and vets visits, and has long been a part of the routine of having a horse.


Louie last had his physio in December, so mid summer he was due, but without a correctly fitting saddle, I decided to wait to make my appointment. My physio is also trained to treat humans, and runs Rider Balance session, looking at the way a rider sits and rides their horses. It also considers the saddle fit on your horse too. I booked in for both.

Monday morning, Lee Clark arrived bright and early at the yard. I've used Lee for about 8 years now, and think his attitude to his work is second to none. Not only do I see on his Facebook page that he's somewhere in the world giving lectures or attending lectures to learn new techniques and research, but he is always very good at explaining the points he makes. He's very thorough and almost methodical in his approach to the horse and its treatment.

Equine Physio Assessment


We started with a basic assessment of Louie in the stable, standing on hard and a walk & trot up on the hard ground. Lee uses an app that records the trot ups and allows him to watch back in slow motion, as well as adding graphics, lines and such like to show the gradients and movement of your horse.

Blogger's Corner: Boost Your Traffic with Pinterest


What ever you read online about how to boost traffic to your blog, Pinterest has a high chance of being mentioned as a top source. I've give the social sharing site a good go, trying different tips & technique to try to see how I could drive more traffic from it. You'll notice that ALL of my posts in the last couple of months have Pinterest friendly images, I joined a couple of niche group boards as well as broader blogging boards...but nothing translated into traffic from Pinterest.

Then, Lindsey Rains, from Alta Mira Horsemanship, popped up in my equestrian blogger Facebook group saying how valuable Pinterest is for her traffic. I immediately wanted to pick her brain and steal all her knowledge to make all my efforts translate. But, instead and better than that, Lindsey agreed to a guest post for my Blogger's Corner series focused all on how she has made the illusive Pinterest traffic come to her!

Turning our hooves to a bit of showing...


I've definitely never been inspired to have a showing career with any of the horses that I've had, and while I've had a super duper day out on Louie this morning, I'm still not inspired to do so... Sorry to all you showing fanatics out there!! πŸ˜¬

I've given it a go twice before - once after about 6 months when I first got back into riding with a little loan black mare, and the other when I gave Thomas a bit of a break from eventing in the middle of summer. While I always have had all more horses super shiny when going out competing, I really have felt the pressure of not only a clean horse but also keeping myself clean and my tack clean.

Back in the saddle to showjump

Just a quick update from us today (we need to be up bright & early tomorrow to have a go at showing!)...but today, we got back in the saddle to start some showjumping training. The last time we did, things didn't go totally to plans due to Louie's saddle having become somewhat too tight behind his shoulders.

August Round Up

WOW - where did the last month of summer disappear to!?


August started VERY well and with something very exciting... A new saddle for Louie & I. Louie's had a big growth boom this summer, growing in height as well as finally bulking out (he no longer has two front legs that come from one hole!!) The downside to this has been that rather abruptly, we realised his saddle was far too narrow for his now fairly sizeable shoulders... Louie started behaving quite odd in the right canter, and upon changing to a saddle, less forward cut saddle, the issue was massively reduced.

British Riding Clubs Northern Championships

Wow, what a bank holiday weekend!!

If you follow our adventures, you'll remember that at the end of June, our riding club team made qualification for the British Riding Clubs Northern Championships to be held at Bishop Burton. We didn't go to the qualifier with any expectation, but only to give Louie some experience at a bigger, busier and more atmospheric venue, never dreaming of making qualification!

Anyway, with the support and help of the other 3 team members, we did!



Showtime preparations...

Meet Julia Hope, Editor of Totally Horse & Pony Magazine

Back in April, I did my first guest blog for Totally Horse & Pony magazine. After a couple of emails back and forth between the magazine's editor (& creator), Julia, we decided that I would create a blog once a month, focused around Fashion & Style. It's something that I don't currently cover on my own blog so gives a different angle completely when working with the magazine.

Since then, I've done four blogs covering different areas of fashion and style. I've also been able to build up a great relationship with Julia, bouncing ideas off one another and talking about upcoming collaborations & concepts.

Take a flick through the posts that are already published.


But what is Totally Horse & Pony magazine all about really?

Blogger's Corner: Instagram Insights

Instagram Insights & Iconosquare

Instagram Insights to Turn Your Creativity Into a Big Success!


When we think of Instagram, we all think of beautiful photos that give us that inspirational feeling. But did you know that Instagram can provide you with a whole lot more that just pretty pictures?

In this edition of Blogger's Corner, I'm going to show you the benefits of upgrading your account to Instagram for Business, as well as making the best use of Iconosquare's free 14 day trial...

First up, I'll lay it to rest - there is NO tool currently on the market that can schedule to Instagram. A lot say they can, but they can't. End of. 

What they do offer is for you to construct your Instagram post, complete with description, hashtags, location and tagging of other accounts, and save it to which ever app or tool you're using with a time & date. Sounds like scheduling, right? Not quite. 

At that time & date, the tool will then send you a notification to hit post, almost like a calendar memo. As Instagram now has the ability to create & save drafts, I'm not so sure these tools now have a function (unless you're super forgetful) - just use your calendar if you are. Plus, from my experience of hitting post within these apps & tools, some of the image quality is also lost through posting from them... Never a great start to a beautiful pic!

A Guide to the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials 2017


The final big international 4* event of the season in the UK - Burghley Horse Trials. Every year, I keep saying, I must go - I know, I can't quite believe it either that we haven't been - & based in Lincolnshire, I don't have a real excuse for not going there & back in a day!!


With over 160,000 visitors across the four days of competition, Burghley Horse Trials is evidently a popular event to head to as a spectator. Equally, it's highly popular with the world's best combinations, averaging 80 each year to battle it out for a piece of the £250,000 prize fund.

It's Not Just The Horse You Need To Make Show Ready...

So, usually it's me, Sophie, that does all the posting on Team Tunnah Evening, but today, it's Andrew's turn!! Getting Louie show ready - training and cleaning - is very much left up to me, but there's also the horsebox to consider, which is definitely a job I leave firmly up to Andrew!


Here it is - Andrew's first blog!

Blogger Recognition Award - Equestrian


My blog started out as a way for me to look back at my competitions performance and training progress to make tweaks & see the progression we were making, as well as being easy to spot areas that we needed to improve on. This changed a little when Louie & I's partnership started back in January 2015 - the blog a story of my journey with my first young, recently back horse. In November 2017, this changed again following my one of my proudest times of my blogging efforts - winning Equestrian Blog of the Year. Today, I continue to blog about competitions and training sessions, as well as documenting the journey that Louie & I are on, but it has become a lot more too.

Over the last 6+ months, I have changed my content to include posts about:



It certainly keeps me busy!

Dressage at Leamside Equestrian


7am never seems a good time to have to set your alarm for on a Sunday morning, but this week, I didn't mind too much as it was time for our first dressage competition since the riding club qualifiers at the end of June. We were without a saddle for a couple of weeks at the end of July, so we were keen to get back to it and be out & about!

6 Picks...of Equestrian Clothing Brands

Top 6 Picks of Equestrian Clothing Brands


As part of my monthly feature on Totally Horse & Pony, I decided that August's edition should be my personal top 6 picks of equestrian clothing brands. We all have our favourites and our in the moment & on-trend brands that we spend whatever spare cash we have on, but I've tried to look a bit deeper than that... I've considered all of the clothing brands that I've experienced over the last 10 years since getting back into riding and highlighted my top 6 picks!

Hendersyde Park Horse Trials

After filling up on a full English breakfast at the delicious Running Fox in Longframlington, we headed through the beautiful Northumberland countryside and up to the Scottish border town, Kelso, to enjoy an afternoon of showjumping and cross country at Hendersyde Park Horse Trials. The event boasts stunning views over and along the River Tweed, and runs on good old fashioned turf, in surroundings typical of the area.


I was only ever fortunate to be able to run once here, back in 2013 in the BE90. There must be something about the events in the Borders as both Floors and Hendersyde featured highly on my favourites list. I liked Hendersyde as soon as I got there, but it also has a VERY happy memory of mine and Thomas' only ever British Eventing rosette - a 7th place. We got an OK dressage score (33) and a couple of time penalties, but a CLEAR ROUND - something extremely rare with Thomas (I think he only managed 5 across his six seasons). So I added a few extra favourite points to the event too!! πŸ˜‰

July Round Up

July started with a weekend off for Louie. Well he’d actually had the full week off at the end of June, following a couple of great competition days out and a trip to Copenhagen with work. But we were soon back to it, enjoying some fantastic schooling sessions, as well as some long relaxing hacks out on an evening after a busy day in the office.

Team Tunnah Eventing - July Round Up


Near the start of the month, we attended an unmounted workshop run by one of my coaches, Philippa McKeever Curry in partnership with a local vets, to talk about the conformation of sport horses. It was a very insightful couple of hours, learning about the correct conformation of front legs, hocks and overall body. Philippa also brought in five of her own horses to have the audience’s critical eyes scan over them, allowing any questions about them to be directed to the vet, before loose schooling each one on the flat and over a jump.

CIC3* Action from Burgham Horse Trials



This weekend was Burgham Horse Trials and due to when we are usually on holiday, I've never been to watch since it was given its FEI classes. We're very lucky to have classes up to 3* right on our doorstep.

So on Saturday, we head up to the event, nestled in a beautiful part of Northumberland approximately 10 miles north of Morpeth, to enjoy watching some of the world's top combinations being put through their paces in the showjumping and across the country.

Blogger's Corner: Grow Your Twitter Using Buffer



Drive even more traffic with Twitter by using a scheduling tool


A few months ago, I was introduced to a great little tools for Twitter - Buffer. Buffer is a fairly sophisticated tool, allowing for scheduling, reporting and managing your social media all from one place.

I've mainly used it for Twitter, and it has sped up so much of my workload for pushing out my own posts, as well as making sure I have a queue of content through retweets and quote retweets. I also only use the free version to the tool and found it meets all the needs I have.

Go to the Buffer site to sign up and get your account plugged in.

June Round Up

June was another busy month (I seem to now be saying this more & more!)



It kicked off in a pretty AMAZING way!! My sister, who has been on the transplant list for over a year, received a phone call at 5.20am Sunday 4th June to say that there was a kidney ready for her. I got several missed calls from her, my Mum & my Dad, and at 6.30am they finally managed to wake me up to tell me the great news... I immediately called my sister and as soon as she answered, I was a completely blubbering mess that couldn't even manage a 'Hello'...

An Olympic Q&A with Ludwig Svennerstal

Ludwig Svennerstal & Louie at Bramham CCI3* in 2017


A few years ago now, I watch a beautifully modest dressage test at Bramham Horse Trials. I didn't recognise the rider, nor the horse. It was a very harmonious test, showing a very real & working partnership. I thoroughly enjoyed the test & it has stuck in my mind ever since...

Glancing at my programme, I discovered it was a Swedish young rider, called Ludwig Svennerstal & a horse called King Bob. That was back in 2011...

Glow Means Slow

Many of you will have heard of the campaign GLOW MEANS SLOW currently running to help with educating motorists about the safe way to pass a horse while out on the roads.It also has a little added extra & helps riders to understand why it is sort important to be seen, both on & off the road.



We asked Sarah Johnson from the campaign to tell us a little bit more about it!

Let's start at the beginning...

What is Glow Means Slow?
