2013 blew in and out like a blast! We had an incredible season, with travel and new beginnings.
Ashley and Carter both had a successful show season in both the show jumping and three day eventing rings, bringing home many ribbons and getting the horses out and experiencing different rings!
I took another year off showing to focus on my university degree, which entailed travelling to Southern Italy to excavate a second century Roman cemetary. It was a once in a lifetime experience which fell right in the middle of summer, and as a result I decided that it was best not to put Melanie through the stress of having time off and getting in the ring.
However, look for all of us in 2014, we're all planning on entering our respective rings! Although the weather has been very cold this winter, it has given us the best training aid anyone can ask for, and on the warmer days we've been having a blast playing out in the hay fields! We all love the opportunity to get out of the arena, and are so lucky to have such big rolling fields with great footing that are perfect for strength training!
