Part of me wants to take Sydney eventing sometimes!

You should! Eventing jumping is so much different to straight show jumping!

I do kinda want to! But I’m not registered for Eventing this season - and the the Horse Trials clash with show jumping

Hi! I have what could be considered an odd question... but I wanted to say that I really really admire your artwork, and I was wondering if you would be willing to give your permission to base a tattoo off of one of your pieces? I'm a little ways off from actually actually getting it, but I've been meaning to ask you for about 6 months:)

Omg that would be totally fine! what piece are you getting done?! Im  flattered!

So today started off really shitty. My regular followers will know we are going through a rough patch, lack of confidence and what not. Probably feeding off each other a tad. Recipe for disaster whatever it is. I was supposed to be show jumping at Ellesmere A&P - but we got there, it was raining and there was one warm up area for two show jumping arenas. It went as you can imagine… So I scratched from the rest of the day and left about about 10am. Decided to go straight out to Mcleans Equestrian Centre and deal with some issues right then and there. Turned out to be a fabulous day - he started off a bit stuck and unwilling, but soon warmed up to the idea of reliable Sydney! Will post more photos soon. Quite pleased with how he came from from his terrible morning.
Also under the instruction of my trainer, i will be scratching from next weekends big Labour Day Show Jumping at Christchurch and instead will aim for some lower heights the weekend after at Ashburton.

2.9k! Thank you all so much

hoofprints-on-the-heart:

Unfortunately I do not have much time, so I can’t do a big promo, so instead I will do a following spree.

I am only following 400 blogs, and I would like to be following at least 600!

Reblog this if you are at least an 80% equine blog

I will be checking all out and following on my own time, so it may take a bit.

You may reblog more than once
