Well when you are on a roll you sure are on a roll!  Fresh from his Team GB Gold medal winning performance at Tryon… if possibly a little jaded from sister Ella’s big birthday party in London the night before….and Tom smashed ... read more

WEG Show Jumping

Literally down to the very last horse and rider and the very last jump…..that was the finale of the eventing at Tryon. Ingrid Klimke and Hale Bob had it down to hand individual victory to Rosalind Canter and All Star B. Team Gold went to ... read more


What a fantastic day at Tryon for Team GB and Tom was a huge part of that by bringing home Toledo de Kerser clear and under time.  For many it was deemed the round of the day and it really was foot perfect and a joy to watch. Tom and Toledo ... read more

WEG Dressage

Tom and Toledo de Kerser did a fabulous job in the electric atmosphere in the dressage arena at Tryon posting a final score of 28.4 which is less than a pole off second place.  With just the last rotation of team horses left to go this ... read more

WEG: Jog and first look at XC

Tom and Toledo de Kerser have been on great form… or rather, Toledo has whilst Tom has had man flu so even flying Business Class didn’t lift his spirits!  The rest of us were much miffed to be in economy while the Brits flew ... read more

Wellington OI and A

No peace for the wicked… an overnight drive back from Scotland for Tom and the team and a turnaround for Wellington. Toledo de Kerser had a quiet run around the OI with a 29 dressage and the usual double clear for 10th spot and all things ... read more

Blair Castle CCI’s and ERM CIC 3 star

It  has been a busy weekend for Tom and then today the rain came down in spades just to make things a tad more complicated.  I take my hat off to the team.. Lucy Seddon in particular as managing 5 horses in wind and rain is just not fun! The ... read more

Blair Castle CCI and ERM CIC 3

Sunshine at Blair for Super Saturday with plenty of rides to keep Tom busy.  Strike Smartly ( Paddy) went all out as one of only three horses to make time which demonstrates how fit he is as he wouldn’t be the most streamlined of horses ... read more

Blair Castle

Having been selected for WEG with Toledo de Kerser ( which was actually not that much of a surprise when you think about it) Tom decided that he had better make this weekend count so he drove 5 horses up to Blair Castle in Scotland to contest 4 ... read more

Hartpury CIC 3 star

Two advanced horses at Hartpury for Tom with Toledo de Kerser and Zara Tindall’s Watkins in the CIC 3 star.  Hartpury ran the CIC 3 dressage on the big outdoor surface alongside the CCI 1 star and this year it was the turn of the CCI 2 ... read more


A relatively quiet weekend for Tom with one of his own and two of Zara Tindall’s at Cholmondley. After two months of unbroken summer sunshine it was quite the surprise to have a weekend of gales and rain but no one was sad to see some ... read more

Aston le Walls

Having run novices at Dauntsey earlier in the week it was all systems go for Team McEwen at Aston le Walls with 9 horses for Tom to compete.  We still have our amazing heatwave and I did see Tom looking fairly pink faced as he warmed up for an ... read more

Upton Intermediate

A mid week run at Upton for Tom with three lovely intermediate horses over a track that had enough questions and with ground that had been worked on to ensure the best going possible in our continuing heatwave.  The verges might be brown on the ... read more

Barbury ERM CIC 3 star

Tom had said he was looking forward to riding Royal Royey around her second CIC 3 star a few days ago and even after her slightly hot dressage he still had high hopes for her. It was another glorious day at Barbury and the show jumping track was ... read more

Barbury International CIC and ERM CIC 3

Another superb summer day at Barbury and the results finally in for Tom’s two Intermediate novices which he ran late on Friday.  Dream Big was a good girl with a good test and a rail followed by a clear cross county which is her forte and ... read more

Barbury Castle CIC 2 star dressage

A return to competition for the “Badminton Boys” this weekend and Strike Smartly ( Paddy) and Toledo de Kerser both found themselves in the CIC 2 star at Barbury as it seemed as good a place to start as any.  Its a bit pointless ... read more

British Eventing Magazine 29th June

The latest BE magazine is out and Tom is the main feature with a lovely cover shot of him and Toledo de Kerser.  As always Tom is quick to mention his whole team in the interview giving everyone credit for his success and being open and matter ... read more

Arville CIC 3 ERM SJ and XC

The showjumping track in Arville was not as tough on time as some of the ERM classes are but it still caused enough problems even with such a classy field.  Tom and Figaro van het Broekxhof jumped a super clear and that was good enough to climb ... read more

Arville CIC 3 ERM dressage

As far as I can see Tom is basically on a mini break this weekend with Figaro van het Broekxhof as his partner!  Just the one horse at an event is a luxury, especially at this time of year and it looks as though Lucy is enjoying it even more ... read more

Nunney International

A somewhat belated overview of Nunney.. apologies for that! It was a busy weekend for Tom with a mixture of novices, intermediates and one advanced horse that made the trip down to Somerset for Nunney horse trials over the two days.  The ... read more

Berkshire College 10th June.

Having spent a couple of days up at Bramham with Zara Tindall’s horses at the CIC 3 star (where I think the highlight of Tom’s weekend was having the use of her horsebox!) it was back to basics with two youngsters at BCA on Sunday. ... read more
