Badminton Dressage 4th May

It was a cool breezy morning but the sun came out for Toldeo de Kerser’s test and what a picture Tom and Toledo made! Lucy Seddon had Toledo simply gleaming and Tom rode him with such assured confidence that they looked like they owned the ... read more

Withington 29-30th April

Withington is a fairly local affair for Tom and he certainly made the most of it with 7 rides over the two days. Nothing like 7 cross country rounds for getting your eye in for Badminton!   CHF Cooliza (Eliza) did a nice test for a 32, ... read more

Bicton 21st April

A trip down the M5 with 5 horses to Devon for Tom and his team.  Bicton is a venue that works hard to get competitors there and they mix classes on the same day, offer really good value stabling and generally try to be as helpful as possible. ... read more

Burnham Market International 14-15th April

An 8.30 am dressage in Norfolk on Good Friday…. guess that’s one way not to hit traffic!  Tom had a bust day on Friday with CIC 2 and 3 star dressage, an advanced, an Oi and an intermediate to get through. Reports of a bitter ... read more

Larkhill 8th April

Wow.  Larkhill in April is usually an exersize in polar warfare crossed with Apsley Cherry Garrards “Worst Journey in the World”.  This year, apart from the now legendary Salisbury Plain pot holes on the drive in ( you could ... read more

Portman 4-5th April

A bit closer to home than Lincolnshire for the young horses although as Tom says perhaps not as easy to find your way home from!  Tuesday was for the novices and The Magician (Mars) posted a 33, picked up 8 faults in the showjumping and enjoyed ... read more

Belton International April 1st & 2nd

A busy weekend for Tom with 6 rides across the board.  Lucy Jackson’s Willy Do just did the dressage and then was withdrawn while Superstition ( Stinky ) was allowed to do all three phases.  A rather exuberant 37 was followed by a single ... read more

Burgham and Gatcombe March 26th.

Tom did go to Lincoln last weekend which I totally missed so apologies for that!  Toledo de Kerser yet again breezed through the event with a 30 dressage and the regulation double clear.  Tom and Strike Smartly got to know each other a little ... read more

Tweseldown 10th March

Back to Tweseldown with the novices and the star of the day was CHF Cooliser (Eliza) who started out her competition year just as she finished last year… with a “cool” attitude and showing masses of ability.  A 32 and a double ... read more

Tweseldown 9th March

What a fabulous day to be out eventing!  There have been spring days at Tweseldown where it has been so cold the horses have not even needed washing off after cross country but day 1 of 4 days of Tweseldown felt like spring had sprung for the ... read more

Isleham March 5th

Tom kicked off the 2017 season with a couple of advanced horses at Isleham which turned out to be a good plan as while the south was basically calling for the second Ark to be built the team at Isleham enjoyed ground that Tom described as ... read more

Aldon & 2016 Season wrap up

And to finish the season Tom took two novices down to Aldon and had great dressage scores and fabulous cross country rounds.  The Magician (Mars) scored a 26 and despite 12 faults in the showjumping still finished inside the top 12.  ... read more

Pau CCI 4 star

A brilliant conclusion to Toledo’s fist 4 star with a clear round showjumping to move him up into 22nd spot and the top 50% of a 4 star which is a qualification that he will keep for life. Only 5 clear rounds from the competitors over ... read more

Pau 4 CCI 4 star 15th October

With a beefed up track and plenty of problems before he set out Tom must have nearly had heart failure when Toleo de Kerser banked the first fence!  It was a bit odd but it’s just yards from the start, in the main arena where the horses ... read more

Pau CCI 4 star 13th October

Tom and Toledo de Kerser trotted up early this morning in Pau, most people stating that it was still dark!  Rather unusually Pau holds the 4 star jog on the Thursday morning and then the dressage begins at lunchtime after the CIC 2 star ... read more

Calmsden

Osberton International

CHF Cooliser cruised around her CIC one star cross country for a lovely clear with just 5 time to add to her score and a seriously nice way to end her first season eventing with Tom.  Royal Roxey also posted a clear in her CIC 2 star cross ... read more

Osberton International

CCI 1 star cross country was the first thing on the agenda today and sadly Splash of the Irish (Dennis) had a fall at a corner fairly early on which ruled him out of the competition.  Dennis has been incredibly consistent cross country so it ... read more
