Dauntseys Schools Jumping Style, Wickstead and Calmsden BE100

What a fun filled, busy birthday weekend for Ellie.

Ellie represented her school at a jumping with style competition at Wickstead, near Swindon and placed in the 90 as well as helping the 100 team to qualify for the school championships at Addington on the 20th October.

We then took three horses to Calmsden on a really beautiful day and a fantastic event. Ellie did her best test on Moley to date with a super SJ round but then unfortunately tipped off during XC, she jumped straight back on and finished but was left wondering how and why she fell off earlier on.

She also had a fantastic round with Shrimp who did a super double clear to finish a very competitive 10th place. Shrimp is now on a very well deserved holiday, while Moley is preparing to represent Dauntsey at Addington. After this event he will also have a break.

A great result also for Henrietta Gossage, my ex working pupil who was riding Bridget and Simon Hall’s Ordnance Hill and finished in 13th place.

Thank you to Karen Smith, Bridget and Simon Hall for their amazing support for Ellie this year, it’s been so much fun and kept me sane with not being able to ride myself this year and such a pleasure to go out with great horses, fantastic owners and amazing supportive sponsors. Seeing Ellie improve and producing these two lovely “Honies” is wonderful, as well as seeing her learn from her mistakes and enjoy the challenge of the fantastic sport of eventing.

Check out the fun photos from the weekend courtesy of Bea, our new working pupil.

A beautiful day and great to have Lucinda and Ellie’s owners there, Bridget Hall with her beloved Moley and Karen Smith with Mandorior (Shrimp).

New working pupil Bea did a great job at her first ever event grooming for Ellie, while head groom Jess sorted out the rest of the team at home at Rosegarth.

Thank you to all of my sponsors for their continued support, without which Lucinda would struggle, namely Pure Feed, Devoucoux, Gatehouse, Rodney Powell, Arc Equine, HRP Saddle Pads, Safecare Equine, Prochaps, Mark Todd Collection, Ice Horse, Freejump, Megan King Physiotherapy, The Horse Bit Shop, Hay-hutch , Thermology UK, Prochaps, Prolite and Cardwave.

Also a huge thank you to Pontispool who were extremely helpful and friendly in providing lifts around the course while Lucinda is still recovering after her knee operation earlier this year.

It was so lovely to have the “honies” out following Ellie’s two month summer break. Ellie and Moley finished 15th in the BE100 and 8th with Shrimp in the BE90 with good dressage tests, fabulous XC clears within the time and just a couple of rusty rails down in SJ.

Next stop will be Ellie representing Dauntseys school at Stonar and then followed by Dauntsey, Calmsden and Bovington.

Hopefully after that we will get some lie ins over the Autumn and Winter period.

Clever Marley!

Britannia's Mail proved himself on Friday to be a true advanced event stallion finishing with a superb clear round cross country at Aston Le Walls, with just one rail around an influential showjumping track and a very good Dressage performance at his first advanced event with Rebecca Howard, finishing 14th.

Thank you to Jess for looking after Marley so well at home/ at the events, Rebecca for riding so fantastically well and to Kelly and Danielle for their support.

It's very special for everyone that knew Headley Britannia to see Britannia's Mail progressing towards the top and doing so well and making it look easy.

Exciting times ahead for all those with Marley babies, already in excess of 60+ off spring already born and many in the making!

A lovely start to Barbury with Ellie taking part in the new arena eventing this morning with Mandorior (owned by Karen Smith) and Joubert (owned by Bridget Hall).

If you have ever dreamt of riding at iconic Barbury, then arena eventing could be the option for you. there are two classes at 90cm and 100cm and horses and riders complete a round of show jumps immediately followed by a cross country course in an arena.

The last fence is a show jump, the joker fence. The joker fence will be approximately 10cm higher than the rest of the course, if you knock the joker fence down you will incur six penalties.

Barbury was lovely although rather hot and not surprisingly the ground was firm.

Rebecca produced some super work with both Little Britannia and Britannia's Mail in their dressage tests, but with a few costly little mistakes.

Both horses looked fantastic and behaved beautifully all weekend- they have certainly grown up a lot since their first BYEH 5 years ago!

Both rolled an unlucky pole during the show jumping but were foot perfect cross country and Rebecca certainly rode beautifully, the horses looked a picture galloping around the Marlborough hills.

Next stop will be their first advanced in less than two weeks at Aston Le Walls.

Big day this Thursday when Ellie and Joubert and WP Anna Wilson on Ordnance Hill compete at their first BE 100 at Upton House.

We had a fantastic mother/daughter weekend at Chepstow with Ellie competing in her last 90cm with Bridget and Simon Hall’s Joubert (Moley). We hadn’t been to Chepstow for about 4 years and we would certainly go back again, it was a fantastic event .

Ellie did amazingly well riding a steamer of a round and coming in 6th place.

Ellie is now getting ready for the arena jumping at Barbury this week with Joubert as well as riding her first trial ride with Karen Smith’s lovely chestnut gelding Mandorior (Shrimp). It’s a big step up then the following week at Upton in her first 100 with Joubert.

It’s a very busy weekend for us all at Rosegarth with more pupils going to the arena jumping at Barbury, as well as Rebecca Howard Equestrian doing her first international with Britannia’s Mail and Little Britannia in the 2*, as well as riding her own horse Riddlemaster in the ERM.

Should be a great weekend and the start of Summer holidays for Ellie - Looking forward to seeing lots of friends at Barbury.
