Well July has been a busy month for volunteering started the month at the scenic Offchurch Bury with LandS Eventing for their BE event boy it was hot and sunny. I was charged with stewarding the xc warm up the slightly scarey part of the event, first time i’d ever done it but i loved it got up close with some gorgeous horses including 2014 Grand National winner Pineau de Re who is on loan to Lizzie Doolittle lovely to see another former racehorse enjoying life after racing.

22/07/2018 Pip and I managed to complete our Wobbleberry challenge at Warwick Hall. We had tried on 2 other occassions to complete the challenge only to have both events cancelled due to wet weather!
So its taken us nearly 2 years to achieve this since I first signed up for the challenge. We have had some knocks on the way, mostly to me, but its been an amazing rewarding positive journey. Almost as soon as I bought Pip I signed up to be a wobbleberry. I did pon
Its been ages since my last post, June and July have seen some amazing highs and reals lows. Fortunately I can now see more highs than lows. We managed to get ourselves into a downward spiral, Murphy had stopped jumping which massively knocked my confidence and we had a horrendous dressage outing which almost put me off competing all together. Thankfully things are on the up, we had an amazing clinic with Harry Meade at the Wobbleberry camp, and a huge donation from the Lio
HOPETOUN www.justgiving.com/fundraising/evelyn-and-rosie www.britisheventing.com/asp-net/events/results.aspx?riderid=151902 What a fantastic few weeks, around 2 years ago I jumped my first XC jump with Rosie and at that point even the thought of doing a XC event seemed years away. We played with small unaffiliated jumping competitions and finally this year I felt brave enough to put my name down to participate in the Wobbleberry Challenge 2018. Snow and bad weather
01/07/2018 Offchurch Bury www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ailsa-clarke1 Challenge completed!! Can’t quite believe that myself and Jake have actually completed a British Eventing ODE!
My decision to undertake the Wobbleberry Challenge wasn’t one taken lightly. I am a very nervous jumper resulting from an accident several years ago (my right leg is held together with pins and screws) when the horse I was jumping fell on top of me. Also although Jake is a fabulous little cob wit
Not sure where to start, it's been a couple of weeks. I am still not able to ride following my fall, the fractured vertebrae have healed and the bruising has gone but the haematoma that formed as the bruising started to go down is still prominent. At it's worse it was 25 cm across which is quite a lump to be carrying round in the middle of your back. It is started to go down is about half the size now but it is going to be a while yet before I can start riding which is ver
Berriewood 09/06/2018 Although we were eliminated at jump 4 on the xc. I was super pleased at how Pepper performed. She soared round the show jumping only collecting a few time faults due to me being cautious on the corners due to not having studs. Dressage was ok dispute having horse eating sheep that may have attempted to leap the fencing to eat us! XC didn't start great with 2 refusals at fence 1 then she got into a rhythm over 2 and 3 but then the gun cartridges were just
So this is the second year I've organised a wobbleberry camp at the amazing Somerford Park Farm in Cheshire - 80 acre XC training ground, 4 camp stable yards, 4 campers pavilions and about a gazillion arenas to use- the facilities are second to none. 24 people ACTUALLY paid to attend this year's camp- surprising given that last year one instructor pulled out 2 weeks before around 25% of campers fell off the air ambulance had to be called -and that was my first ever camp - nev
24/06/2018 Well we have completed our wobbleberry challenge! This has been a brilliant journey with lots of highs and lows, when I signed up for this I did not realise how much commitment and self belief that was needed. Dixie and I were just starting off at xc and our lack of experience was obvious, we spent lots of time trying to get through water and trying to get over ditches. It was heartbreaking having to leave venues and not make it into the water or over di
12/05/2018 Me and lemony snicket had a fab day , lemony had ants in his pants so didn't want to stand still so he made it a lot harder than it needed to be , the dressage was ok no brakes and we had a buck as well , I was pleased I remembered the test so all good , the show jumping was very fast we had the last pole down , he used a lot of energy up so xc was a bit slow but we got around clear , lemonberry was on my back the whole day so thank you Hannah for being

05/05/2018 Since signing up in Sept 2016 I've had to overcome four changes of horse, two broken collarbones, two dislocated hips, two events rained off and one balloting out - but I made it in the end! Very proud to have come out of jumping retirement (following hip replacement and tibia fracture in 2014-15) to support such a great cause & have fun with my Wobbleberry friends, all mums from Curre
www.justgiving.com/fundraising/kerrynorman40 Horseheath 22/04/2018 Phew! We did it. Can't wait to go again. I would never have gone eventing again had it not been for this challenge. I wish Hannah could see what an inspiration she has been.

07/10/2017 I bought Boots as a rising 5 year old having just lost my horse to a brain tumour I wasn’t ready to buy my next horse so I bought this rather on the forehand not quite 14.2hh Irish pony because I thought she would be nice type for my daughter in a few years. Never, for one second, did I think I would start eventing!
Boots approached the dressage in a manor I can only

Mr clever clogs Barty knew when the canter was coming up and picked up early, I decided to leave it and not rile him up and go for some nicer marks in the canter, the next thing I know the judge is ringing his bell for an erro
