#Blogtober Day 18: Horse Themed Pumpkin Carving 🎃


Being that I struggle carving a basic smile out of the side of a pumpkin, I'm not about to share a collection of amazingly carved pumpkins, all in a horse theme, ready to be admired. In fact, I'd say I even struggle to carve and scoop out the centre of a pumpkin... So now I've established I definitely don't have the required skills for basic pumpkins carving, how will I tackle today's Blogtober topic?

Simple. I'm going to bring you the best horse themed pumpkin carving from across the web, OK, well mostly from Pinterest!! So here's my 6 picks!

#Blogtober Day 16: Tip Tuesday


Tuesday's certainly come around fast when you've to create a tip for them each week! 🙈

So, for today's tip I'm going to go down the route that will inevitably mean that I'll be putting it into practice... 🙄

Get your equestrian first aid kit stocked up for hoof abscesses

Hopefully, they are few and far between, but right now is prime time for hoof abscesses to show their very ugly and unwelcome face. As the ground conditions, go from hard and dry to soft & moist, our horses hooves become more absorbent and physically softer for things like sharp stones to make a puncture in the soles.

PetPlan Area Festival Final at Morris Equestrian Centre


WOW!! What a weekend...! 👌

After qualifying for the Finals at Northallerton in August, I'd been looking forward to this weekend for what felt like AGES!! Not only an exciting competition, but a night away with Louie being stabled and Andrew & I checking into a rather nice local hotel...

So, here's a round up of our weekend. Sit back & enjoy - it's a long one! ☕️

#Blogtober Day 15: A photo diary of your week last week


Monday

 Monday we headed to The Pegasus Centre for our monthly training session with Cathy Burrell. We worked on putting elasticity into my arms to give a better overall elastic contact to help the inconsistency we feel with dipping behind the contact & pulling it forward.
