I first started using arcequine in 2013 after a very nasty rotational fall which left me hospitalised for several weeks and I was recommended to use this unit. It didn’t take long to convince me how great it was and I’ve been singing its praises ever since, it has become a key component in mine and my horses health kit.

Back in 2013 the doctors were really amazed by how quickly I recovered from my serious injuries and I put this down to using the arcequine. Since then I’ve had some falls which have left me with broken bones, ribs or bruising and I’ve always reached straight for my arcequine to reduce my recovery time and ease pain and help with sleep. Earlier this year I had a really unfortunate accident and I was left with a very complicated and severe broken knee and underwent major knee surgery. This hasn’t been as straight forward as I had hoped but throughout it all the arcequine has continued to manage my pain and enabled me to sleep more comfortably at night. I will potentially require more surgery early next year so my arc unit will be a constant companion for me.

The arc family have expanded their range so I’ve recently changed over to an arc4health for my personal use. I’m a real advocate for this unit and always recommend it to friends and people I meet who have been involved in an accident or just want to benefit from it on a day to day basis for their wellbeing. I also use arcequine extensively with all my horses in preparation for riding and after events, as well as when they get an injury. Most recently one of my new foals caught her leg whilst out in the field and we are using the arcequine to help in her recovery. Over the years using arcequine I’ve seen a real speed up in recovery time and I now use it most of the time, even when myself or my horses are in tip top condition.

All my team love this product, and can confirm that it definitely speeds up recovery times on both humans and horses. It can be used to treat many injuries, and tissue damage of any description, and the technology has also been shown to be effective for stress, depression and other non-physical conditions.

The technology is equally as effective at prevention and maintenance as it is at restoration, and so the list of benefits goes on and on.... I highly recommend it, without question.

If you want to talk to me about me experiences of using arcequine and arc4health or find out more please do get in touch, in return I’ll share a discount code with you to get 10% off a unit of your choice.

What a fun weekend of hunter trials and events.

Ellie won her 100 cm open hunter trial event at West Wiltshire on Moley and Pedro’s boy was placed 10th in the 90 event.

Alex Chapman, my newest working pupil rode Zoe’s horse Bertie and one of our newest horses Silver in his first hunter trial, he joined Ellie riding Elzy and placing 7th in the pairs event.

This week I will be working hard training Dauntsey’s team so that they are ready for the championships and I will then be heading out for the weekend to coach Willemina at Le Lion.

A great event at Bovington BE90 for Hen and Libby (my current working pupil).

I am so delighted that Libby won with her own horse Rocky.

Libby commented “I had a cracking win which still hasn't sunk in. We managed to get a dressage score of 28.3 which put us in the lead after the first phase. We then had a clear round show jumping which was very lucky as I did miss a few strides. Rocky flew round cross country picking up time penalties for going too fast ! Not sure how we managed that. All in all it was an amazing day and I still can't quite believe that I won !!”

Hen rode my horse Peter’s Boy and went beautifully in dressage and XC but unfortunately dropped a couple of rails in the SJ which sadly left him out of the placings. It was Hen’s first ride on him and she can’t wait to ride him again.

Peter’s Boy is now ready to move to a new home and will shortly be coming up from sale, he’s a really kind, sweet horse to deal with and will give a new rider a lot of fun. Please get in touch if you would like to come and try him over half term.

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.
