A great team effort from everyone at Rosegarth helped get the 2017 season going with Britannia’s Mail and Little Britannia having their first run at Portman.

Lucky for Lucinda who did not have to get up at 3am on this occasion, and even luckier to be invited to the event sponsors lunch!

Jess, Lucinda’s groom had Millie and Marley looking super smart while Rebecca Howard gave both horses a really good confident practice run in the intermediate novice section before her first serious run on them at the OI at Bicton in two weeks.

“As hard as it is for me to sit on the side lines for the next couple of months during my recovery from a knee operation earlier this year I am very lucky to have the team I have, both in the yard and the office” commented Lucinda

Lucinda added “The physio work I am doing with Megan King, together with my ArcEquine is definitely helping the healing process and lessening the pain level”.

Kelly Mccarthy-Maine also began her season with a super double clear in the novice with her own Lucy.

“I’m looking forward to a busy weekend at Larkhill with my working Pupil Tori riding Ellie's pony Moreland Oscar, Bridget Hall's Joubert and Karen Smith's Mandorior in their first BE 100. Tori then heads to South of England with her own mare juniper hill for the under 18 novice”.

Good luck to everyone.

Tori (Lucinda’s working pupil) and her mum set off with Jess at 4.30 am at the weekend to event Oscar (Moor Land Oscar), Shrimp (Mandorior) and Moley (Joubert). This was the first time for Tori riding these three horses at an event and she went fantastically well.

Oscar and Shrimp did fast double clears, ending on their dressage scores and both finishing third in their sections. Moley (Juniper) had four penalties and a time fault which put them outside of placing but it was still a very impressive performance considering it was his first ever event.

Tori gave Ellie’s pony Oscar a really good run for the start of the season while Ellie is away. It was also fantastic for the other horse owners Karen Smith, Bridget and Simon Hall.

All the horses were turned out beautifully on the day and were in great shape, thanks to Pure Feed, Megan King PhysioTherapy and Arc Equine.

An early start for the team this morning to get down to Bricky horse trials in west Dorset. We arrived to find fantastic ground conditions, best we've had for a number of weeks, and 6 different, interesting courses. The first time we've made the trip down through the beautiful Dorset, hilly country side, and it was well worth the early start, with all 4 horses performing really well.

Working pupil Holly made the most of her last UK run before she heads off on her travels. Thank you to Simon Hall for giving Holly the chance to introduce herself and Ordnance Hill to the beginning of their eventing career, jumping a super clear round cross country round. We wish Holly all the best with the start of her university degree, we miss you already.

Ellie had another super time with her lovely Appaloosa 6yo Oscar, doing their best test yet of 31 and another clear showjumping round. A little pilot error XC caused Oscar to finish outside the placings although he jumped an efficient round.

Lucinda was delighted to be the first to ride the very educational, up-to-height, new 1.05m XC course, certainly a step above 100cm both in height and technicality and a very good stepping stone for Pure Bay and Dancing Ghareeb before the novice at Calmsdon.

Thank you to all the team at Bricky, you did a fantastic job and we will be back next year.

Oscar took Ellie around her first BE 90 with an amazing double clear and a 34 dressage, 12 time faults (although Ellie kicked from start to finish) kept her out of the top placing but finished a credible 13th.

Pure Bay jumped her second successful double clear with ease and a nice dressage test sets them up well for Bricky next weekend. Lucinda commented 'I really like this mare, she's fun to ride and easy to deal with and I'll be sorry to see her go when the time comes to sell her'

Dancing Ghareeb did another nice test and clear showjumping but didn't run cross country as he's saving himself for the next 3 weeks of events, having won last week.

Holly did a super job with Ordnance Hill in all three phases although an unlucky dismount at number 8 on cross country has sharpened them both up for Bricky next week.

Dancing Ghareeb (Joey) won today and Pure Bay (Dory) jumped a super double clear! Joey finished on his leading dressage score of 25.5 at WWEC while the lovely 8 year old bay mare, Dory, thoroughly enjoyed her first BE event.

Jess, Holly and Yuxuan were up early to have the horses ready for the first dressage at 730am. Luckily the sun was shining and Pete Collins and his team presented 4 beautifully educational XC courses on near perfect ground.

Good luck to Holly who is doing her first ever event tomorrow on Col Simon Hall's Ordnance Hill. X
