Archie went home to his owner Stacey today for a summer holiday - we will see if he comes back in the winter but either way we wish them the best. Safe to say everyone's favourite special D will be much missed!

'Boots' is a stunning Sports Horse mare with a great deal of potential for dressage and the show ring, but who will do all general riding club activities. Very correct with good, straight paces. Has been brought on slowly with basics established including laterals. Has been used for hacking, fun rides and weekly lessons with current owner but now ready for someone to put their stamp on this talented horse who is still a blank canvas.
Jumps neatly, just lacking in experience. Currently being schooled. Full history known.
Good to hack and in traffic, good with children, dogs and other horses. Very sociable mare. Good to handle and do in all ways, no vices. Easy keeper with all worming, vaccinations, teeth, back up to date.
Good looking, well-mannered, talented horse who will go far in the right hands. Not a novice ride.

Friday was Head Dogzbody Maxwell's birthday - 18 again! Watson and I both managed to get her cakes featuring her horses Bailey and Spike. A lot of cake has been eaten this weekend....Happy Birthday Maxwell!
Video of the loading Spike saga to come after the weekend - but hopefully this gives you an idea of the ordeal....

Superb active paces; does a lovely test.
Huge bold jump with masses of potential. Competed BSJA and BE90.
A truly lovely natured horse, fantastic safe hack and easy to do in all ways, good to hunt.
A positive fun and easy ride. Ideal for a teenager or small adult to compete in all spheres.

Topper and Troy have had some jumping practice this week on a rare day when our usually incredibly reliable arena wasn't frozen, flooded or snowed under! We challenged Topper by putting up a course of 1.10m and he really rose to it. No problems for Topper!
Troy did some gridwork to work a bit on his technique. He's rising 5 this year so his work will become gradually more demanding now.
