September 16, 2017

The start of this challenge I was terrified of jumping due to a freak accident over 20 yrs ago where my horse broke his leg. Now, due to some wonderful trainers and an amazingly generous and genuine horse I find myself enjoying jumping. Something I alway wanted to do again but never thought I would. I am so pleased with how far I have come. I'm almost looking forward to Munstead in September!

I was too scared to canter in an open field until April, but after numerous clinics and a RC camp, I discovered my 'almost brave' pants!! 
I am absolutely terrified, but Hannah was an inspiration and as I lost both my parents to cancer, my mum very recently, I needed to do something positive and healing. My cross country top was a gift from my mum, so I will be wearing it in her honour and I have already raised loads of money thanks to my wonderful friends and family.

This challenge has been amazing for me, the only thing I am sad about is that some beautiful young person had to lose their life to get me to hitch up my brave pants and enjoy my horse and have a go at things I'd only dreamt of! Neither me or my horse have ever competed in anything until this year and I'm amazed what some determination and motivation can do! It has not been easy but I am happy to have been able to raise some money and hope I can do the ride justice for Hannah's family. I am quite quite terrified but now also hoping I don't get balloted out! The fat bird and the cart horse have come a long way!

This challenge has changed lives and pushed people, including me, further than we ever believed. I am achieving things I never ever thought I would and I am so looking forward to horseheath.

Amazed at how much confidence I have gained since starting training for this challenge. After being unable to walk for a year after a riding accident my confidence was poor. Hannah inspired me to face my fears and get back into it. I'm even starting to enjoy jumping again, well certainly the smaller heights anyway!
I'm actually sort of looking forward to the 29 th July in a excited/ nervous sort of way!

It's been an incredible journey of highs and lows. I've learned so much in a year and still can't quite believe that I am about to compete in a BE80 competition when a year ago all I had ever done is hack! Really looking forward to it now, despite being incredibly nervous!

Issy and I successfully completed our second practise run round a BE80 course at Northallerton on Sunday! We did one of our best dressage tests to date, with a score of 32 putting us into 3rd place! Followed by 2 great runs SJ and XC. Unfortunately we were 28 seconds over the optimum time XC which dropped us to 16th place. However last time we were 2mins+ over the time which proves our hard work is starting to pay off and we are progressing! So proud of how far we've come already. Dare I say it, 80cm is starting to look small...! Bring on the BE!!!

This has been an incredible challenge! And it really was a CHALLENGE for the first few months of my training; forcing myself to learn to jump when I was terrified of it and felt sick every time I thought about a jump lesson. But now I am loving it, and my horse is glad he's no longer consigned to just dressage competitions! I am so glad the Wobbleberrys came up with this concept, as it has inspired me to do something I would not otherwise have been brave enough to try.

July 02, 2017

Hi all,
So me and my little coblet JitterBug June, has entered the BE80t at Offchurch Bury 2/7/17. 
Its is safe to say the nerves are starting to kick in more as it's only 4 weeks away. But we as a team have come a very long way, as this time last year we could only manage walk and trot. Cantering and jumping was out for the question as JuneBug was too weak and couldn't put her legs in the correct places.
But thanks to this challenge we are now jumping heights I only could of only dreamed of and also galloping in open spaces.

Thought I would have to cancel my challenge as my young horse who I was going to do it on injured his foot and has been on box rest for almost 10 months now. Decided to try it with my 19yr old boy. Both of us had lost our confidence jumping a couple of years back after a bad fall so I felt sick jumping him again. Well slowly, bit by bit we've been getting our confidence back and so we are just going to go for it!

I'm super excited & super nervous as the days tick away and my first EVER BE creeps closer. My belly does cartwheels every time I admit to people I've entered they and they kindly & and enthusiasticly say "we'll come and watch!" One little Phil on my shoulder says, "excellent, you need all the support you can get!", 👼🏼 the other says "that's another person who is going to see you make a right t*t of yourself!" 👹
I'm almost at my fundraising target, but feeling a bit greedy and really want to smash it!!

This will be my first event for 22 yrs and will be Dougie's first BE event. After a riding fall I was told by my surgeon 4 yrs ago that I would never ride again. So using Hannah as an inspiration I've got back riding & joined in on the challenge. I have had good preparation so far, had a great BE taster clinic with John Evans in January to start it all off. I need to focus on fitness & XC now.

May 28, 2017

Basil and I have been training hard ready for this event! So far we have been to 2 unaffiliated one day events and NOT GOT ELIMINATED!! (Our main aim!) I'm nervous about the step up to 80cm but know we are both capable. I'll just need a large supply of apples, carrots and polo mints...

Sally is entered into Shelford Manor BE80(T)

Good luck Sally.

So we wibbled, we wobbled and we berry well did it!!

Yesterday basil and I trecked down to shelford manor for our first ever be80 event.

Dressage was first and unfortunately some time lapse/ travel slight phenomenon meant i have no idea where an hour disappeared off to and it was time to go in without even warming up! Basil was a super ⭐️ and pulled off the best test we have ever ridden for a score of 42.8 (ok not as good as some but I was very pleased.)

Showjumping next and the fences seemed massive as we trotted into the ring. Thankfully the double was towards the collecting ring so that was helpful. Basil was again super and got round just knocking 3 poles for 12 faults.

Finally cross country. Some of the fences seemed very big and solid but we had got this far, not pulling out now! I deployed my new trick of getting Basil to watch 2 horses set off before his turn to get him "excited" or at least stop him having a nap 😴 in the start box. So 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and we were off. Flying over jumps 1 to 5 before dropping down a step into the woods and off we went. All the jumps that I had been nervous about basil took in his stride, he was fab. Just one run out at a jump near the end due to a momentary concentration lapse for both of us and we were round. 

A total penalties of 101.6 might not be a winning score for many but we had completed! I was so happy and proud of my little racing stripes. Go basil!!

I've only had archie just a year. His feet had never left the floor until sept 2016. 8 years ago I had a riding accident and was left temporary paralysed down the left side. The accident took place while jumping. My beautiful mare is now 19 years old and that's where archie came in. He has been one massive challenge and it's been hard work we have had a rollercoaster but we are just getting stronger as a partnership and loving every minute!

BE Borde Hill- Entry 20 Section A riding LUCKY JIM III

May 27, 2017

Well we did it! It wasn't easy but we knew it was going to be a challenge and that's why we did it. Both horse and rider doing their first BE event , it was so exciting and such an amazing feeling when it was finished. 24 out of 36 competitors. As I have said before on the Wobbleberry Facebook site, preparation was the key, I tried to put myself in the strongest position to be successful with clinics, a practice event, combined training and dressage competitions. I could not have done it without the support of my friend and trainer Penny Sangster who was there yesterday every step of the way and my friends and Sister who was an amazing groom! If we can do it, anyone can! My nerves are terrible and Jimmy has never done anything like it too. We have learnt everything together and he has been a loyal and enthusiastic learner. I thought I would never do another but now it's all over there is a small sense of we could do better....... This challenge has certainly got me thinking about the rest of the Summer and what we could do. I've raised almost £350 so feel proud to have been part of the Wobbleberry group and to have contributed to this wonderful charity.Borde hill was a fab event and we all received goody bags and rosettes from the organisers.

I know the dressage will be less than beautiful but am much calmer about the whole thing. This challenge has taken in directions I would never have expected to go and I have learnt so much.

After having months off of riding last year due to knee problems which resulted in surgery in November I never thought I would be here in the final stages of my preparation for my wobbleberry challenge! 
I've owned my horse for 7 years now but only dabbled with the rare little competition here and there as it's all a bit too daunting and I found going to training sessions much more my thing. 
Signing up to do the challenge has really focussed me on getting myself booked onto training and I've never had so many opportunities to go to so many horsey things! I used to have sleepless nights before a training session and feel sick all day until it was done but now I'm actually able to sleep fairly well and even stomach some breakfast before I go. I'm sure it will be a different story on challenge day. 
The support from all my local wobbleberries and trainers is amazing, it's a great support network and everyone is so encouraging and it's really helped to know that there are others that are dealing with similar challenges. 
I'm looking forward to crossing that finishing line on Saturday and cheering my fellow wobbleberries too.
