BE 80(T) Norton Disney (2) 20/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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 nat
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Broadway 14/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Norton Disney (2) 20/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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
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
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Broadway 14/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link We went. We did it! We had a blast!! So glad i signed up to it. The whole journey was fantastic and we raised some important funds along the way. I'd do it again in a heart-beat.
Good luck to the 2018 Wobblers. Pull up those brave pants! You'll love it. X
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Ascott under Wychwood 04/06/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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 of
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Bovington 15/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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 o
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Little Downham (3) 30/09/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link 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! 🍀
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Broadway 14/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link Never in a million years did I think I could do this! What a journey we have been on ..... met some forever friends, people who have gone over and beyond to help Tara and I and most of all we have raised £1,500 for this incredible charity!
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Sapey (2) 03/09/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link So Charlie and I didn't quite make it around the xc! 39.5 dressage which was great as Charlie thought that he was at the start for a race in the collecting ring, quite a few faults showjumping then a fall xc after a stop. I'm not sure if my Wobbleberry journey will continue with Charlie as he doesn't seem happy jumping but it will continue on another horse if need be. Watch this space for next year :)
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Poplar Park (2) 20/05/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link We did it! After endless training and clinics and with the help of children Pip and Andrew, whose pony I stole, we completed Poplar Park BE 80 (T) back in May with a 31.8 dressage and double clear finishing 3rd. I overcame huge nerves, managed to get myself back in shape and raised some cash for this wonderful charity.
CHALLENGE COMPLETED! BE 80(T) Tweseldown (4) 01/10/2017 RESULT Justgiving Link I had an amazing time on the fabulous venue of Tweseldown. Where I am known to volunteer as well.
I had a good part of the day to get my courage up (more like getting nervous) as I was on for Dressage at 16.02. My very lovely horse Pixie was all ready to go around 2 so off we went trundled. To be welcomed by the great parking man at the gate and better we where allowed to choose where to park (g
