Had such a fun day at Dauntsey Park yesterday with Fred doing a 29 dressage and foot perfect double clear to take 2nd in the 100o (only .7 behind the winner)!! Feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to be able to ride this horse and enjoy every second of it. V sad that competition was abandoned today as JB but looking forward to finishing the season at Bicton in a few weeks #principalespoir

Kinda sums up how today ended :( a very uncharacteristic JB led to me retiring after the first fence xc. He normally lives for the cross country so this behaviour makes me wonder that he may have some pain somewhere. Getting the physio out on Monday so 🤞 it’s nothing major. He has given his all to me this season so I could never be mad at him 🥰 #truecourage big up @tillymooreeventing for the emotional support and beaut photos

JB was super in the 100u18 at west wilts today. Started with a much improved, more relaxed test - he gets better every time! Followed by one of his best show jumping rounds to date to have the most unlucky pole at the last double. He then stormed round to do the most incredible clear cross country inside the time ( one second off being to fast even after some major slowing down at the end!) to finish in 8th place !! Couldn’t be happier with such a great confidence giving round before wellington 105 next week then if all goes to plan we will attempt out first novice 🤞 #truecourage

Really unfortunate day at area showjumping today! Manny was feeling great until he half pulled off his shoe half way round the first round meaning I had to retire. Lucky got the shoe quickly put back on for him then to pull the other one off after just 4 fences in the second round :( ending up with a v sad Manny who wanted to carry on! JB jumped well just to breathe on a couple of poles. Big well done from AVH teams esp @beth_mcn_ for smashing the J/O ;)) #dissingtonview #truecourage

V mixed today at area eventing today. In the 100, JB did his best test to date to get 34. Then had an unlucky 2 poles round a twisty course with very slippy ground. He was then going really well Xc till he got to the ditch which he launched himself over and almost landed on top of the skinny one stride away. He got a little bit worked up after that so I decided to save him for another day ☺️ Manny did a smart test for 24 then flew clear showjumping and was flying cross country just launched himself down a step and ran past the b element. Also had a bit of a sack the jockey moment at the last water where I pointed him at the wrong jump, only realising a couple of strides out which resulted in an unfortunate 20 pens but nonetheless so happy with him round such a tough course! Well done to everyone else and thank you @tillymooreeventing for the photos. Also big thank you to @hanfreeman17 for keeping them going so brilliantly this past week while we were away on holiday ⭐️ #dissongtonview

Amazing day at tweseldown BE100! Started with a much improved test for 38 in a very harsh section with loads scoring in the 40s. He then did the most impeccable double clear inside the time around two courses that caused complete carnage - for 8th place (same score as 7th I was just a bit fast ;) ) thrilled with how he went in all three phases. Looking and feeling awesome thanks to his @antaressellier tack from @pmequestrian and a big thank you to @lauren_dallison_ for taking me!! #truecourage

Beautiful JB did a lovely, calm clear in the 95 and just rolled a couple of poles in the 105 where we are both still getting used to a new bit. Team 4th and individual 6th in the 95 and team 1st in the 105 qualifying for champs ⭐️ #truecourage

amber_fletcher_. Another super fun weekend with both boys trying there hearts out! On S

Another super fun weekend with both boys trying there hearts out! On Saturday, at nunney in the 100u18, JB did a much more relaxed test with some really nice, constructive comments from the judge! He then did a good sj round with just one blip due to some bitting issues we need to fix (big up @phoebehughes.eventing for lending me a bit to try). He absolutely stormed round doing the most amazing clear Xc bang on the optimum, giving the most incredible feeling and making it all feel so easy - he just gets better and better every time! Today Manny went to Milfield for NSEA dressage. He did two sweet test in the Prelim and Novice to get 67.7% and 70.2% to come 3rd in the novice and help the team to 2nd - he is now already qualified for 3 classes for NSEA champs in October ⭐️ #truecourage #dissingtonview

Two very good, happy boys back out eventing! In the BE90, Manny did a sweet test, just not quite supple enough after his time off for 33. He then did a lovely showjumping round, just having an unlucky stop due to me giving him a bit of a dodgy line! He absolutely stormed round the Xc and felt so brave! Just a silly stop at fence 3 on a mound where he just lost momentum coming in but felt the best he’s ever felt! In the BE100, JB did an understandably tense test (not helped by me forgetting it!) with some beautiful glimpses of what’s to come for a fair 37. He then flew round the SJ in the pouring rain to breath on a pole. On the Xc he gave me the most incredible feeling, eating up the course and making it feel so easy. I didn’t wear a watch and just let him go his own speed so got 0.8 time but over the moon with how he felt! Overall a great, very educational weekend for them both especially after their time off and now looking forward to Nunney next weekend on JB ⭐️ SWIPE ⬅️ for Manny #truecourage #dissingtonview

Incredibly proud of the boys at NsEA SJ today!! Manny did a beautiful clear in the 85cm for 5th and team 2nd. He jumped really well in the 95 just a silly jockey error 🤦‍♀️. JB did a nice round in the 105 and was very unlucky to have the last down but we were the only team to finish so qualified for champs in October :). So happy with how he jumped in a decent 110. Just 2 poles where he can he can get a bit keen into unrights and find himself underneath them but still so so happy. They both couldn’t have felt better - next step West Wilts BE! Thanks @beth_mcn_ for the videos ;)) #truecourage #dissingtonview JB feeling so comfortable and looking so smart all dressed up in @antaressellier @pmequestrian

Very good boys at WW CT today. Manny did a nice test and clear to come 3rd in the 90 and JB’s test was nice for the first half then just got very tense followed by a bit of a mental jumping round. Safe to say they are both very happy to be back out!! #truecourage #dissingtonview

Not much going on tbh! JB was not quite right so gave him 3 weeks off over the Easter holidays. He had mri scans and xrays and nothing major came up so that was good news! He’s now got special shoes and is feeling great, just bringing him back into work hopefully in time for Windsor NSEA. Manny came in with a bit of a puffy leg a few days ago so sadly had to pull out of Swalcliffe tomorrow. Lots of cold hosing and hope it will be better for Stonar Isode in two weeks time 🤞 meanwhile my A-level mocks start next week 😕 #dissingtonview

Manny was such a good boy at AVHPC arena eventing today! A nice clear the 85 and just tapped a pole in the 95 where he just felt a little tired from his busy weekend! so happy with how confident he felt picking up 4th place in both classes :) also some videos of JB schooling beautifully a few weeks ago in a hackamore 🌟 #dissingtonview #truecourage

So so so proud of Manny at SWu18 camp! Gutted that I couldn’t take JB but Manny stepped up so well and was on FIRE! A minor headstand on my front over a cross pole 😂 showjumping today but apart from that he was on awesome form and felt so confident asking him lots of tough questions and things he’s never faced before. Couldn’t be happier with him :) #dissingtonview @_oliviapatterson__ @__chloe.brown__

Very educational day for little Mansey at his first ever BE90! Started with a sweet test, just lacking a little bit of his normal sparkle 🌟 for 33 in a harsh marking section. He then felt much more positive showjumping then normal - just working on riding him much more forward to give him more confidence which led to an uncharacteristic pole then a naughty stop at the least spooky fence on the course but I was really happy about how he felt ☺️ he was then VERY spooky cross county at the start which resulted into two stops at his nemesis fence (trakehner) but I really felt him grow in confidence the further we went round with him giving me a great feeling by the end! Now just to get him out more and seeing lots of scary ditches. Looking forward to taking him down to Bicton for BEu18 camp this weekend 🌟💚 #dissingtonview

Super day for Mans at Moreton NSEA! He spotted the XC as we were about to start our test, resulting in a pretty rubbish test to get 31.8 followed by a great double clear inside the time for 2nd. So happy with how much braver he felt compared to last year. 🤞for his first ever BE at larkhill next weekend #dissingtonview

BEST feeling in the world to be back out eventing after so long! Happy with dressage which is still majorly a work in progress for 36 in a harsh marking section. Silly rider error pole at the last showjumping then stormed round the cross country clear making it all feel so easy and giving me so much confidence! Took it slowly so got some time but thrilled with the day as a whole for our first event together! Now time for lots of dressage before pontispool ⭐️⭐️ #truecourage

Good day out at west wilts today! Manny had a cheeky stop in the 85 then went to fly round a big 95 clear :). JB didn’t feel his springy self in the 100 for 2 disappointing poles. We then swapped him back into his old jumping bit (we’ve been using his dressage one the past couple of weeks) which made a HUGE difference and he absolutely flew round a meaty 110 for just the most unfortunate pole at the second last. Feeling much more confident and very excited after the second round for moreton next weekend 🤩 #dissingtonview #truecourage

Dressage is very much a work in progress but improving every time. Now just to play around to get a more relaxed test! #truecourage. My beautiful @antaressellier saddle giving JB so much freedom and keeping me so secure from @pmequestrian paired with the white Antares numnah with navy piping which is so smart! 😍
