March brought us some dry weather thank goodness as we have been having all our ditches dug out and hundreds of tons of earth moved around the farm. With all the rain it was beginning to look like a scene from war horse!!! Leighland Xavier went to Howick to do the BE100 with Danni and apart from having the last fence down was on very good form.

Danni has already had a few excellent results this season in an OI under 21 a CIC** and a novice, so Xavier will have to stay on form to keep up! Prophet, Pearl and Destiny had a nice trip out XC schooling at Howick after the event. I think Pearl felt short changed by the day but it was nice to see her out and about.


The March rallies have been very well supported the next one is Saturday 6th April which is jumping. Sorry to everyone waiting to send their horses for schooling it seems to be one thing after another! snow and rain seem to have dominated the winter putting people off taking their horses home. Bring on spring George is having a fantastic time in South Africa he has had a week of fun, but now the competition has started. He said the air is very thin where he is so the shooting is very different and tacking a bit of getting used to.
