Archives for December 2013


What a month December has been rain wind and more rain and wind.

We had a very relaxing few days in Lanzarote with Adam and Matt the villa was right on the seafront and the weather was amazing

Pearl is back in work and has spent a few days with Mike and is as keen as ever to get back to eventing  but Xavier and Prophet are still on holiday.

We had a trip to Summerhouse and once again Parsley and Gemma won  both the prelims and George had a good day with Sid getting two strong marks in the novices. Flynn was placed in the prelim and novice with 67% he is showing great potential .

We had a yard outing to Adam’s . Gemma took Parsley and George took Melody and Flynn all horses and riders behaved having a really productive lesson

The December rallies have been very well attended with 16 coming to the Christmas dressage rally the standard was extremely high with the marks ranging from 60% to 81%

The fancy dress outfits were brilliant and thank you to all that made the extra effort.
Anne made her debut with Moon and got 81% and Vikki made her debut with Pascal and gained 77% amazing results for both of them.

Pascal will be available at the end of January for schoolmaster lessons so if any one is keen to learn or improve their half pass or flying changes please contact me

I hope every one had a great Christmas and will have a brilliant 2014


Not much to report this month as I have had very bad flu I thought I would never get better but six weeks on here I am on the plane to Lanzarote with our friends Adam and Matt on our way to stay with our good friends Linda and Hugh. I feel a short break is just what the doctor ordered!!!

The rally’s have been extremely busy and if any one wants to start coming please just text or email me.
On the 14th December we have our Christmas rally with dressage tests you can choose from intro A prelim 18 and novice 28 all bits and tack allowed rosettes for each group and a plentiful supply of port mince pies and tea or coffee . Please don’t be shy to bring friends and family or just pop in to meet us.

Carrie has at long last got her vet nurse job and although we are thrilled for her we will miss her a lot she has been amazing support to moor farm over the past 6 years always willing to put herself out and turn a hand to what ever is needed. I am sure we won’t loose contact and we all wish her the best of luck.

Due to Carrie leaving we now have a part time job or we would consider a nvq student for nvq level 2 and 3 please email ring or pop in if you are interested.

George has bought Hilldown Harley another homebred, he really is a smart looking horse and so far has been easy to break in so watch this space for progress

Gemma took Hilldown Parsley to his first affiliated dressage and he won both the classes and even won some money !!

We have small selection of quality horses for sale including a few Hilldown horses and a few lovely homebred horses of Rosie Dickens. All shapes sizes and prices if anyone is looking for a nice horse please get in contact, I will get them up on the for sale page ASAP.
