It has been a busy January getting all of our young horses going after their winter holiday, we are now about to get into full swing with a busy Spring show calendar ahead of us.
On Williams return from the Middle East, there will be a quick turn around before the lorries set off for The Sunshine Tour in Spain. William will be joined there by Pippa and they will have a team of 6/7 horses each. Also heading to Spain will be Lucy making her return from (a very short) maternity leave following the birth of daughter Jessica in the Autumn. The Sunshine Tour is always a great start to the year and we’re looking forward to watching how our team of horses progress over the 5 weeks.
Back in the UK we have a great team of horses and riders that will be busy attending National shows. At this time of year we put a lot of focus into making sure all of our young horses are in a programme that will suit them and make a plan for the year ahead.
We all relate to the struggles that Winter can cause, the dark mornings, short days and bad weather can certainly dampen the spirits! But now, with January nearly at an end and all of the horses ready for shows, we can almost feel Spring upon us!
From our Surrey base we are very lucky to have so many great show centres close to us who put in a great effort to run a lot of shows, so keep a look out for our young Billy’s as we start our 2020 campaign!
