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

Blenheim

Cross country day at Blenheim for the CCI 3 star and the day dawned with pouring rain which went on relentlessly all morning.  Tom is no stranger to muddy and wet conditions, in fact he rather revels in them and he and Joyride  (Wibley) had a ... read more

A great start to Blenheim for Tom with two very smart dressage tests.  Joyride (Wibley) went early in the CCI 3 star draw and scored a very respectable 47 which puts him in 16th spot at the end of two days dressage. Toledo de Kerser is bidding ... read more

Wellington

Tom managed to sneak off from Blair and catch a flight back down to Wiltshire which was just as well as he had 5 rides lined up at Wellington on Bank Holiday Monday.  Since he was on a bit of a roll the day just kept getting better and it was a ... read more

Being the jet setter that he is Tom rocked up to Burgham up in the North with four horses to ride on Friday.  Joyride (Wibley) was in the CIC 3 star which certainly seemed to cause plenty of problems with some cricket scores in the showjumping ... read more

Eventers Grand Prix, Hickstead

Three intermediate rides for Tom at Aston on a sunny Sunday.  The showjumping arena at Aston had been causing problems all weekend with the new surface not delighting riders as horses undoubtledly found it on the spongy side and the Sunday ... read more
