Happy New Year!

I hope that you all had a super Christmas and saw in the New Year in style. My first job is to thank everyone for my lovely Christmas presents – what a generous bunch you are!

Due to the weather and my slowly mending body I’ve been bored and off games for weeks, but we did manage to catch up with some friendly faces at two of the OSBWK foxhound meets over the festive period. Boxing day we saw everyone off at Chiddingstone Castle, and on the 28th we were at Ash Manor for the Childrens’ Meet. It’s lovely to catch up with people you don’t see so much during the winter and great to see so many of the children I teach through West Kent Meopham and North West Kent pony clubs out for the day. It just made me more determined to get myself and the horses going again!

It’s the time of year for reviewing plans and goals. It’s a good way of making sure we are on the right track, analysing the past season, putting together training plans and keeping the ball rolling. I hope you’re ready for the conversation when I see you!

Plus, I hope that you have all noted the 2010 rule changes. The two most obvious ones being BD – gloves must be of light colour, and BE – proper protective headwear must be worn for the dressage phase at BE80, 90, 100 and 100+.  Don’t get caught out, I for one need a new pair of light coloured gloves as mine are full of holes!

We’re looking forward to the Coakham Bloodhounds meet at Nurstead on Sunday. Having spent two days walking the country this week Martin says the going is fantastic. Fingers crossed that Jack Frost stays away….

Looking ahead, we have clinic dates fixed for Carmen Court 2010 for April through to October (see Clinic page), and Martin and I will be doing a jumping Lecture / Demo at Chelsfield Equestrian Centre on 21st March. Hopefully we’ll see some of you there.
