Badminton jog.

Well what can can we say. Toledo de Kerser looked absolutely stunning today as he simply glided down the trot up strip looking a million dollars. Tom, however, caused quite the stir when he appeared in his new trot up apparel.  He has amazing ... read more

Withington Manor

Saturday at Withington was an interesting mix of gale force winds, fresh horses and the feeling that you were stuck in an industrial tumble drier.  There were some lively dressage warm up with movements not required and some interesting tests ... read more

It is always a long old weekend at Burnham Market and with 5 horses spread over three days Tom must have had a fair amount of hanging out to do! Not that the weather was condusive to ‘hanging out’ as it varied form bitterly cold to ... read more

Belton… all classes!

It was beautiful Belton this year as the sun shone, the usual biting Easterly wind was missing and with the footing being good to firm there was no need to bring out the wellies. Friday kicked off with a great start when Lordships Graffalo ( ... read more

Gatcombe 24th March

Three advanced and one intermediate for Tom on day 2 of Gatcombe and whilst it was awesome to have the sun shining the wind was on the bitter side! The ground seemed to be the best that the March Gatcombe has had for a long time and there were ... read more

Gatcombe 23rd March

So the home gig is actually always a tough one… the horses are generally pretty freaked at the sight of an entire event set up on the site of their hacking, turnout and galloping. This year Tom bucked the trend and with his three rides on ... read more

The end of the season for Tom and his team but the final outing was pretty impressive to say the least! Tom took 4 of his up and coming horses down to Bicton for the CIC 2 star which was hugely popular at the end of the season and had huge ... read more

Boekelo Show Jumping

I have a feeling that Tom didn’t have too long to wait for the showjumping after the vet check… which both Royal Roxey and Watkins breezed through. Roxey didn’t exactly redeem herself with 16 faults although in fact that only ... read more

Boekelo Cross Country

Last year at Boekelo I don’t think we had a single day without endless pouring rain… this year they have basked in a heatwave in October which is unheard of at Boekelo!  Beautiful blue skies, crowds in shorts and T shirts… it ... read more

Boekelo Friday dressage

Tom rode Zara Tindall’s Watkins today in the 3 star dressage and whilst dressage would not be Watkins’ favorite phase he ticks the boxes and does the job. He is a jumper and he does what he has to do in the dressage to get to the ... read more

Boekelo Thursday dressage

The reports from Boekelo all say what fabulous weather they are having.. I cant imagine Boekelo under blue skies! Tom has Royal Roxey and he is also riding Watkins for Zara Tindall.  Roxey went today with Tom no doubt hoping that the quieter ... read more
