On Saturday, it was the turn of the 80cm team of Ellie Fredericks, Katinka Beckett and Sophie Flann. Ellie - on her terrific spotty pony, Oscar - did brilliantly to come 2nd individually (she would have won but for a frustrating pole show jumping - having done the best dressage of the day 27!) and Katinka was an impressive 7th in her section.

Sunday was the turn of the 90cm team: Ellie, Oli Ring, Lily Mallinson and Amber Fletcher. They all did very good dressage tests, (Ellie 24!),show-jumped beautifully and flew round the cross-country course to end up 2nd in the team competition - just a few time penalties behind Cheam, but in front of 14 other teams from around the area. Amber was 2nd individually and Ellie (on Bridget Halls 6 year old Joubert) was 7th. As they were flying round the XC course the commentator praised the Dauntsey's entry form for being legible, cogent and correctly punctuated - thanks to Jo Flann for that!

A very successful weekend of 2nd's and 7th's.

Thanks to Cinda for shouting at us all, to Ali and Katharine and Beth for coming to support - and well done to riders and their mounts.

Also, student placement Anna Wilson rode Simon Halls Ordnance Hill at the Larkhill event and finished a creditable 3rd in the 90cm preparing them for their first BE event at mount Ballan on Wednesday.

What an amazing feeling to arrive at an event having had no rain for weeks and be presented with such a beautiful course, with fantastic ground, the work that Nigel Taylor and his team had done gave a fantastic run to the first of five days of competition at Aston le Walls.

Britannia’s Mail and Little Britannia’s times were quite late in the day so they didn’t run until 630 pm. It has been six weeks since both horses did their practice run at Portman and Rebecca Howard and I just wanted to give both horses a steady run around at their first intermediate of the season together.

Britannia’s Mail did a super test and jumped a cracking SJ round and then went around the XC foot perfect, Little Britannia was also foot perfect in the XC but unfortunately had two rails down in the SJ.

We now have a busy weekend ahead with Ellie representing Dauntseys at the inter schools event at Stonar on both days with Moreland Oscar and Joubert, while new working pupil Anna Wilson takes Simon Halls Ordnance Hill to a Larkhill event.

In other news In Fashion Too (Flicka) has headed back to West Kington and Beaufort with her new foal to do some embryo transfers for a client. Flicka is of course by Britannia’s Mail and Prada and recently had a beautiful foal by Oslo who has been named Pure Britannia, a client was so impressed they now want their own foal out of Flicka.

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.

Thanks also to our other sponsors Devoucoux, Freejump, HRP, SafeCare Equine, Gatehouse helmets, Rodney Powell Body Protectors, Ice Horse, the Horse bit shop, Hay-hutch, prolite and thermology UK.

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.
