Pontispool

After the fun of Blenheim began to wane when Tom had to hang around for the prize giving for the CI3S at 5.15 and then go home, unpack and repack for an 8am dressage at Pontispool it was good that he had two super rides! Dream Big ( Dreamy) scored a 33 on the flat… Read more »

Blenheim Sunday

Star prize of the weekend goes to Lordships Graffalo ( Walter)… Read more »

Burghley Young Event Horse
