Oils have many uses: many body systems are reliant on them and they are an essential component of cell membranes. Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat soluble and rely on oils for their transportation. Fats and oils provide over twice the energy, or calories, as soluble carbohydrate (sugar and starch) but they vary in their composition. Some fatty acids, such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 are essential to the horse’s daily diet as it cannot make enough of them itself. Read more
Well I can’t tell you how nice it is to have everyone home where they belong, and especially good to be riding my girls again. The cheeky little Bomber is home looking like she made full use of the all inclusive buffet on her year out. Next door is her bestie; a pregnant Ehren (yahoo!). She has been scanned in foal to Furst Toto (Furstenball / Totilas / Londonderry) and has also had the all clear to return to work as her suspensory has healed. She won’t be doing much, and certainly nothing stressful, but some gentle work to keep her moving and help strengthen her leg properly until she tells me that she’s had enough.

So I realise it has been rather a long time since I last sat down and wrote a blog. I could make excuses about being busy and having too many horses to ride, but in reality I have just prioritised other things - sorry! Although I have tried to keep everyone much more up to date with regular posts on my Facebook Page.
Despite the weather putting a downer on most of our eventing plans this season, the runs we have had have been pretty good with 5 double clear and 5 top three placings on three different horses. Coco has had a 2nd in the IN at his only run this season. Hudson has jumped three double clears picking up 3 third places and I stole my cousins pony for a run whilst she was doing GCSE's and picked up a double clear and 2nd place on her. Read more
