Having been a big advocate of weighing my horses for the past five years, I'm delighted to have officically teamed up with Horse Weigh as a brand ambassador.  The data from regularly weighing each horse enables me to pre-empt rather than react to weight fluctuations.

After a great week at Tattersalls at the start of June, Rosie and I went away for a few days with the children. It was great to take a step back, have a change of scene and then hit the ground running again.  Read more...

I always prioritise Tattersalls for my CCI* and ** horses’ Spring target.  Ian Stark’s courses are always educational, sending horses home more experienced than when they arrived, and the event is extremely well run with a positive and welcoming feel. It’s a great place...

It’s been a busy few weeks since Badminton and it was back to the day job almost immediately with a 3am alarm set for Aston le Walls two days later for a lovely string of Intermediate horses.  They were all on great form and we had three lovely tests in the 20s and three double clears.  Red Kite lead the dressage on a super score of 24 with Tenareze ...

It was so special to be back competing at Badminton.  This was my tenth Badminton but after an absence of three years, I’ve been looking forward to it since the 4th September - the day after Burghley!  Away Cruising was very settled all week and has been feeling great throughout his five month build up.

Belton was the first big event this season to run from start to finish and the team at Bede put on a superb show.  The ground in most places was fantastic over the weekend and dried up in the nick of time.  Being one of the biggest Spring one day events Belton has always hosted large and high callibre entries with good and challenging courses but over the ...

With over 20 events having been cancelled in full and many more abandoned part way through the weather has been a plague for event organisers this year. We’re hugely grateful for the events that have managed to run and to the organisers and their teams who have put in so much hard work and are left with a quagmire in the aftermath.

The weather has played havoc with the opening weeks of the season, which is particularly hard for the organisers and volunteers, whose work in many cases has been in vain.

 Last month I spent five days at Chris Bartle’s and learnt that the art of being snowed in is to do it in the right place! We managed to get up there in the nick of time and worked the horses with Chris each day in the indoor school and I came away feeling we had achieved a lot.

I feel very lucky to have been invited to ride in the Princes Countryside Fund Charity Race at Ascot today and it was a wonderful experience.  I was due to ride a highly rated horse called Solo Hunter but sadly he was withdrawn two days before the race through lameness.  I was very grateful to Trainer Patrick Chamings and his Owners for providing a last mi...

The end of the season has flown by.  Since Burghley we've had a busy final run of events with lots of horses competing at Gatcombe, Pontispool and Osberton, and we finished in the UK with a few of the younger horses at Calmsden.  We then headed out to France for the Young Horse Worl...

Since the premature loss of Wild Lone in 2014 there’s been a patience-requiring gap at the top of my string so this Burghley feels like it’s been a long time coming!  Away Cruising truly stepped up to the mark and it’s lovely to have a proper 4* horse again.  I&rs...

It was very exciting to be present at the European championships in Strzegom. Our team looked so strong in all three phases and to come away with team gold and Nicola’s bronze medal is a real shot in the arm for eventing in Britain.  Aside from the medals it was thrilling that thanks to Nicola, Tina...

I had five horses at Aston le Walls at the weekend - there were no 'Wow' results on paper as I ran all the horses steadily as part of their education or preparation for bigger things but I was really thrilled with how they went.
