So… you want to become a Wobbleberry?

Well, before you sign-up, there are some important things to consider.  Read on to get the inside scoop from a 2017 Wobbleberry Graduate who has been there, done that and literally ‘got the t-shirt’.

OK… if being a Wobbleberry sounds tempting, you are probably at least a little nervous about the thought of going fast and jumping stuff.  If you’re like I was, you’re now feeling rather nauseous having just read the words fast and jumping!  Not knowing what to expect, or how your...

I am a little late with this! I joined the challenge about a year ago and I can still remember the nerves jangling when I went on my first BE taster day in January 2017 - I could barely get out of a trot for the xc and had to stop for a rest around the little course set! However, onwards and upwards and I did it! Completed at Little Downham 3 on 30 September. An ok dressage, 2 sj down but clear xc (apart from a couple of time penalties...

I was truly terrified by my Wobbleberry Challenge, my husband said he had never seen me so nervous !! I was throwing myself totally in at the deep end having never properly competed before except for 2 dressage competitions over the summer, and a very small hunter trial at our local RC. Thankfully my daughter entrusted me with her fabulous pony, we had some training early on but unfortunately Nemo (Rhydant Duffy) had an injury so that...

This will be my last blog, I promise... I finally completed my challenge in every way, having reached the cross country finish line at Norton Disney (2). We were eliminated at the first fence on our debut at Solihull in August, and at the 2nd fence xc 2nd time out at Little Downham. Despite my embarrassment, I made a conscious decision to share my result with other WBs. It doesn't always go right... that is the nature of eventing. However, I was proud that...

I cant believe that I have actually achieved this. From 0 to BE80 in a year. Hall has exceeded all my expectations and adapted brilliantly from racing to eventing.

I have loved every aspect of the challenge and have had an amazing year going out and getting as much experience as possible before attempting the challenge.

I feel very honoured to have been able to raise money for such a fantastic cause, and want to thank everyone that has organis...

Well we've done it, I'm still on cloud 9, still keep randomly bursting in to tears & I am so incredibly proud of my horse & what we have achieved. We finished on our Dressage score of 35.5 in 5th place, I'm still in shock! I have made some amazing new friends over the past year, met some truly inspirational people & have had the time of my life. Dreams really do come true. Hannah, I hope we've done you proud!

Captain America aka Steve and I have had a great year and progressed well.  However when we went to try the BE 80 course at Solihull it proved too much for his 22 years!  He stopped 8 times and I fell off twice...I suppose the positive is that I sat six!  Undeterred (or possibly mad!) we even tried again a couple of days later...4 stops and 2 falls.  My instructor and I decided that enough was enough!  She said she didn't think she could get him round, so I certainly couldn't.  So perhaps another year on another...

After a successful outing at Princethorpe unaffiliated 2DE I entered Ascott under Wychwood. After a shakey star( getting lost on your own down narrow Cotswolds lanes in an old 7.5T lorry is not good for your nerves) I was met at the event by 7 members of my lovely riding club CROWN, Stacey in particular was a star helping me get ready and reminding me of what I might need, and Andrea was official photographer. The dressage was not g...

We did it!
We've come from crying in front of a cross pole to completing a BE80 in a year. I still find leaving the ground challenging but with the help of friends and supporters have found ways of managing the fear. 
I will continue to fund raise for the charity hoping to reach my target of £6k very soon through various activities including a pop up restaurant, kids baking days and knitting masses of Willberry Pony scarves.
Please donate if yo...

What an amazing experience! Puzzle and I competed at Little Downham 3 on Saturday 30th September and won our section 😀🏆. We started with what was an ‘ok’ dressage (well actually a bit disappointing) but then he did a fabulous double clear and was such a fun horse to ride for both the SJ and XC phases! Good luck to everyone who have still got to complete their challenges! 🍀
