Great Start Team!

Happy New Year!

Caroline and Emily have had a great start to their competitive year.

Caroline won the advanced medium riding Enchino for Montse benitez at Aintree last week earning themselves a lovely write up in Horse and Hound.

Meanwhile Emily had a successful visit to Bury Farm winning two of the three "big" classes of the show. Elite K again owned by Montse won the feature class on Saturday night whilst the ever amazing Witch won the Grand Prix on Sunday in strong company. Grand Conan posted double clears in the Foxhunter classes and was placed in The Hickstead Winter Novice qualifier. Emily has had some lovely Press following her recent success which has been lovely to see.

There is a busy few weeks ahead with plenty more shows coming upon us, lets hope the snow stays away!
