Tex & Katie got a double clear BS 1.05 in a Scope qualifier

10th Oct

Ben & Katie competed in the BS 1.20m class at Stokesley Show in September. Their most challenging competition so far, and Katie's biggest ever ! A few poles down, but we were very pleased with how well Ben dealt with all the excitement of a big show, escaping balloons etc. He didn't bother about the 2 water jumps - another first for Katie - we practiced at home over a blue plastic sheet.

Chunky - our aptly named chestnut cob, is currently being broken in , has been bitted and is going well wearing his tack, will be long reined and backed at half term.

1st June

Ben has been out competing with Katie, a nice clear round and a pole down (Katie's fault) at Port Royal in May, and a great open SJ class win at Saltburn last week, in a strong class, "one of my top 10 jump offs ever" Katie.

He's jumping a nice round of 1.20m over the new jumps in our SJ field, and clearing the 5 bar gates when hacking around the farm & moors - Katie can't wait to take him hunting! Lots of pics on Katie's Facebook page.

Hello to Derg Maximus (aka Ben)

Ben is a 7 year old, Irish Sports horse, a16.2 chestnut gelding on loan to Katie from Christopher Hill of Saltburn Riding Stables.

He is very well schooled and an absolute gentleman in all ways. He has been out hacking on the Moors, show-jumping at Saltburn, and over our cross country jumps.

We hope to be out competing soon - now the gale force winds have died down.

I hope to upload some photos soon - Katie has lots on her facebook page.

Goodbye to Lucy

Another of our fabulous loan ponies goes off to a new home. We had Lucy for 3 years & she taught Tom all about 3 day eventing, all the way up to a National Schools Final and numerous British Eventing top 10 places. Ina shorted time with katie, she show jumped in the Grand Prix Final at POYS 2012 with the fastest round

Goodbye to Magna

Magnetic Attraction is going back to her owners in Lincolnshire, we're very sad to see her go. She has been a fabulous pony & had lots of wins with Katie, including Reserve Champion at Trailblazers 95 cm SJ and National School reserve champion. No more singing " Fat bottomed girls " on the lap of honour for Katie & Magna!

National Schools success for Katie & Tom with Whitby College team

The NSEA, National Schools Equestrian Association has been established for over 20 years, it's aim is to promote equestrian sport in schools and inter-school competitions.

6th October at Bishop Burton Equestrian Centre, the Whitby Community College show jumping team won both of the team showjumping competitions that they entered.

The College team of Abbi Christopher, Grace Braim, Katie Walker and Tom Walker jumped the majority of their rounds clear, in good times, to beat opposing schools from around the region in both the 90cm and the 1m classes. Tom & Katie Walker also competed in the 1.10m showjumping.

In addition to the team prizes, there was also individual success for Katie, 2nd in the 90cm class, in the 1m class for Tom, 4th and Abbi 6th, and a 4th for Katie in the 1.10m class.

National eventing success for Tom & Lucy

55 competitors qualified for the BE100 class in the first ever Championship, which took place at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe, Buckinghamshire on 9th September.

Despite the horse box breaking down on the way to Bedfordshire & Tom just getting an hours sleep in the stable next door to Lucy's, he had a great day.

Tom lay in 14th place after the dressage, his weakest phase, but drew on his showjumping expertise & cross country experience to score 1 of only 5 double clears in the whole class and to pull back to 10th overall.

"I was really proud of Lucy, she was competing against horses much bigger than she is, & at 18, she was also the oldest pony in my class.Sadly, this was my last ever competition on Lucy, as I'm too big to ride her next season, I've had some great times on her, we only had 1 showjumping pole down and went clear cross country in all of our eventing competitions last year."

Lucy was loaned to Tom by the Wrangham family from Northumberland, and she will be going off to a new family soon. Tom is hoping to compete for another year before University, if he can find a loan horse.
