Horse Diaries: Miss Rolo

Blair Castle 2013

Horse: Miss Rolo - October 15th, 2013

We had a family trip first competing at Ingliston Equestrian Centre for the weekend then headed over to Blair Castle.

We were so lucky to have fabulous weather and situated in most beautiful countryside.

Rollo jumped her little socks off, qualifying for both the Newcomers and Foxhunter  class championships  on the last day.

She just keeps on Winning

Horse: Miss Rolo - July 23rd, 2012

Miss Rolo  is loving her job, with wins in Discovery and 110 classes she is on top form,  her flat work is really starting to pay off with her much improved canter rhythm  making the jumping look easy.

They have been competing at REC, Dean Valley and Boldheath and bringing rosette home every time.


Here is rolo winning the 110 at Dean Valley

Horse: Miss Rolo - July 6th, 2012

Well like jumping Miss Rolo has had  rather an up and down few weeks.   After acting a bit strange we called the vet and physio thinking she has a trapped a nerve but only to find she wasn’t very well at all and had a very low heart beat in resting of 22 which should be 36-40!! following a rather dire weekend of worrying the vet returned on Monday to say she was back up to 32 and had a triple beat as  found in very fit horses. The blood results showed she had potassium in her blood and also she has had a virus. So we put her heart rate down to the electrolytes  and got her some red cell to build her bloods back up. So our painful lesson was to always mix electrolytes into water and do not put into feeds as you don’t always now if your horses are drinking enough when they have automatic waters.

After 2 weeks rest and lots of TLC Miss Rolo is back fighting fit and flying high over newcomers, Competing at Area 14a in Discovery and Newcomers but it was a 4 fault day!

Competing at Richmond Events this time getting double clears in both classes 29 jumps never touching a pole. She was a true star


Area 14a Newcomers

In the Money again

Horse: Miss Rolo - May 23rd, 2012

Faye and Miss Rolo are getting quiet a name for themselves being in the line up on both days of the show.

Now having jumped out of British Novice its straight into discovery . There was plenty to look at with lots of banners and flags but Miss Rolo never blinked inside the ring and did her job very well.

It was a shame they just got one down in the jump off section of the 2 phase but tried hard to go for the win.

Nothing was lost as they still came third which qualified them for Scope how exciting.


here is the discovery round, I apologies for the videoing but Harriet aged 8 tried her best, warning it has a  similar effect to motion sickness.


Dressage Lesson for Miss Rolo

Horse: Miss Rolo - May 11th, 2012

It managed to keep dry while Miss Rolo and Faye enjoyed their workout in their flat work lesson with Melanie Turner.

As always Mel puts them through their paces with more discipline and sharper movements, Leg yielding aiming for that bigger step through that Miss Rolo just is not to keen on doing,  after a little gentle persuasion and showing a little temper Rolo found her stride she can do it she just prefers not to!

It makes good home work.

THIRD show and THIRD Win

Horse: Miss Rolo - May 11th, 2012

There’s nothing better than winning on home ground and it was a well deserved win beating the second place by 7 seconds

She was fab!

see video of jump of below



The discovery class was a nice round but unfortunately got one down

They did it again REDS REDS REDS

Horse: Miss Rolo - April 26th, 2012

Faye and Miss Rolo headed off to a rainy very stormy Church Farm yesterday, saddly they got one down in the British Novice (which they blamed on the wind) but then come first in the discovery,how fantastic second show of the season to have a second win.

Starting the season with a Red one

Horse: Miss Rolo - April 24th, 2012

Lakeland Stud  brings home the red rossettes. Miss Rolo showed how happy she was to be back competeting on Saturday at Myerscough as she romped into first place out of a field of 34 with 16  going through to the jump off. Miss Rolo was a well deserved winner as she answered every question Faye asked of her with tight turn backs and a careful jump.

Here is the girl showing off her ribbons

Well derserved win for Faye and Miss Rolo

See the jump off that got the red ribbon

On Top of The World ….

Horse: Miss Rolo - April 15th, 2012
