Fundraising Demo

Posted by Emma Jackman on 23 November 2014

Hi everyone it's still really busy for Spirit and I here in Gloucestershire and Spirit is doing really well fuelled by her Simple System horse feeds! I'm just gearing up to travel up to County Durham for a charity fundraising demonstration over two days on the 29th and 30th of November as I write this blog and I'm hugely excited because I've never been up that far before! I guess one of the things I'm most looking forward to is the demo itself and then doing a bit of exploring whilst I'm up there but I must say I wish I was taking Spirit. And having to borrow two horses from riding for the disabled there instead but one of the local Intelligent Horsemanship instructors is lending me her round pen for my demo which will be fantastic to keep everyone safe!

Why I love Simple System

Posted by Emma Jackman on 21 November 2014

Hi everyone, it's been very wet and very muddy now in Gloucestershire.

Spirit and I are spending most of our time just trying to make it through each day and tolerate the mud and the cold.

My demos and talks with Spirit will now have to shut down until the spring time as taking her travelling in this weather doesn't seem fair.

When Simple System contacted me and told me they were happy to sponsor me and my work with Spirit I had actually been at the point of giving up my public speaking because sponsorship was a real struggle and we just didn't seem to be getting anywhere. Not only this but money was always extremely tight and this made it even more difficult to do anything with my dreams.

Down Time

Posted by Emma Jackman on 20 November 2014

Rhapsody continues to look and feel great this past month and I have been feeling a little smug at the amount of work I have still been able to do with him around my job - despite the clocks going back - helped in part due to the exceptionally mild weather. Also of course until recently it has been reasonably dry - and so we have  been doing plenty of hacking and working in the school and keeping ourselves in shape!  I am also thrilled to see that provisionally next year there will be no less than three 3* international para competitions in England - not just the one at Hartpury as in the past. Perhaps this is due to the European Championships taking place next year… or the fact that qualification for Rio starts in January 2015, but whatever the reason it is a welcome addition to the calendar and I have already booked the time off work!
