Shock, horror, no eventing…


In late October 2012 quite unexpectedly I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child. Eventing wise it did put a spanner in the works as I have had to miss most of the 2013 season as I was quite heavily pregnant by March. Despite this I carried on riding, competing in BS until the end of 2013 and British Dressage, horses until I was about 30 weeks pregnant. I also carried on jumping small fences and doing pole work at home and lots of hacking. I was lucky to have help from Amy Benton who was able to take Wanda round Waresley Park gallops for me (my last ride was at 34 weeks pregnant when I walked off Wanda post gallops). I also had some help from Rosie Lloyd who I used to teach and have known for years, Clare Elbrow who had previously broken Wanda and helped me with some flatwork schooling and jumping and Coco Chambers our fantastic groom who continued to hack Wanda in the late stages of my pregnancy and when the baby, Tyler Bobby was born on 26th June 2013. If it wasn’t for my super team and family I would have been totally stuck and i’m so grateful for all their support and kindness.

  1. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get
    that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must
    say you have done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!
