BE Calmsden (1) 29/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link The Challenge is done!
Calmsden today enjoyed sunshine and perfect going. Myself and Gomez completed our Challenge in fine style, not in the placings but very proud of my little horse who, in the 3 months I've owned him has tackled every question asked of him..... And thoroughly enjoyed himself too.... On the xc today he grew wings and a turbo engine, clearly his forte!
Thankyou everyone for the encouragement and available
BE Calmsden 29/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Great day at Calmsden today, it's been a big learning curve. Great motivation to achieve something I wouldn't otherwise have done while raising money for a worthy cause.
William (Davy Grey) was very very excited to be out and it was great fun.
BE Chilham Castle (2) 29/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Well what a day!! I loved every minute of it. Dressage isn't our thing, especially with an ex showjumper that dances around as soon as I get on, so my aim was not to get eliminated 😂, got a score of 50 something wasn't bad for us as it was first time we ever done a dressage test. Showjumping came round and we flew round clear, now for the cross country that I was nerves about as we've been practicing but the water has a
BE Warwick Hall (3) 23/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Ageing rider and veteran horse 76 years between us.
I completed my ‘challenge’ and not only survived but enjoyed it. I did have a flask of fortifying sweet sherry beforehand, so not sure if that helped! Bailey my horse who I trained on, went lame so bearing in mind the generous sponsorship from mainly non horsy friends I completed my challenge on a friends horse - the 'sometimes difficult' - Level 49 aka Leo. Leo is 24
BE Launceston 23/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link We had an amazing day at St Leonards! Nia was a star and took it all in her stride. Great dressage, a frustrating pole in the sj, but a lovely clear xc, with a few time penalties. HUGE thanks to support team of Sally & Sophie! More donations welcome, please give what you can.
BE Warwick Hall (3) 23/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Warwick Hall (3) had been our goal from very early on in preparing for the challenge. Not too hilly for Gerry (my big fat cob) and a venue I'd really enjoyed as ground crew for friends.
I'm 45 with very little experience of competing (neither has Gerry). After dislocating my hip from a fall, we both came back to jumping with zero confidence in spring 2016. With the help of Charlotte Ridley from Park End Equestrian we sta
BE Little Downham (2) 22/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link An amazing day. Pressure made me forget a part of my dressage test but then the donut pony found wings. 2 down sj and one stop, 1 stop xc. The rest she flew round and I am so proud. Today I rode for Hannah x
BE Northallerton (2) 15/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link My wobbleberry other half completed his challenge today at Northallerton and I could not be prouder of him!!! 2 years ago he has never even sat on a horse and today he completed a BE80!!! He did have Bigglesberry along for a ride on the XC and he kept giving him words of encouragement!!! We had an absolutely brilliant day, even the rain couldn't dampen our spirits!!
BE HorseHeath 23/04/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Having warmed up beautifully for dressage we went into the ring and it all went to pot, I was hugely disappointed with my score
Showjumping he got me out of trouble a few times but we managed a clear round. XC was hugely influentional but he flew round clear so we finished on our dressage score and overall finished in sixth place
I was so chuffed, I have handed him back to my daughter now she is home, but hoping to take up the
BE Bicton 08/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link I didn't know what to expect when i took on this challenge but i'm so glad i did, not only has it given me the opportunity to raise money and profile for a worthy charity it has given me purpose, drive and dreams!!! I really struggled with my own demons which were mainly 'Am i good enough?' and 'I'm scared!!' but with the challenge in mind i was able to beat them down a mm at a time, i had such good support via the Cornwall wobblebe
BE Shelford Manor 28/05/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link We had a great day at Shelford Manor, dressage attempt was good with a score of 26.8, which had me in 2nd place! Then onto showjumping and a lovely clear round, eek I moved into 1st place, no pressure!!!! We set off on the XC and was flying round, we took the straight route option and was clear until our inexperience at jumping from light to dark caused a stop. However we finished 12th overall. Really pleased to complete the
BE Solihull 22/04/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Hi myself and my not so trusty steed completed our challenge at Solihull on 22nd April. I had trained hard with by Wobbleberry training partner Jane Rapp. It was decided my steed was my husbands hunter and we would aim to enter a competition in the spring. The big day arrived after lots of training. We had the most fantastic day even though Shadow Way ak Thomas was a horror when he entered the dressage arena. Not the highest score
BE Forgandenny (2) 08/07/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link I was entered for this challenge by my daughters. I had not ridden for 30 years and had no intention to get back on a horse. But, having followed Hannah's journey and many of my friends have been fighting cancer, I embarked on the hardest challenge of my life!
I started slowly in January and overcame the initial fear of horses. However, that came back with bells on when I started to jump. I set my target for our local eve
BE Forgandenny (2) 08/07/2017 Results Donate I entered this challenge because my dad died 37 yrs ago from bone cancer and here poor Hannah had lost her fight too just like him. I started learning to ride properly at the age of 50/51yrs on Lady who is a 14.3 Welsh section D who has done dressage and showing but last year I decided she would like to embark on this journey with me. She is now 17yrs but has thoroughly enjoyed learning to jump coloured and XC fences. Forgandenny w
