Poppy Training

Horse: Poppy - May 11th, 2012

Poppy went to her first show on Wednesday to Richmond, She was extremely brave jumping, walls and some quite scary fences,  she did have one run out but only because it was a double and  she jumped to big into it and then just panicked a little. Matthew was very pleased with her and looks forward to her next show on Sunday.

 

Poppy is showing great potential, She is very earger to please a little quicky, but show loads of scope with a powerful Jump

 

 

 

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

'Winners Line Up'

Faye and Miss Rolo strut their stuff!

Horse: Miss Rolo - May 11th, 2011

24t h April was a very special day for Lane End … it loomed bright and sunny, the first one of our local Area 14 a british Showjumping shows. It was a nice casual set off (for once ) as our classes didn’t start until about 1pm – there was even time for a specially barbecued (in the new special gas-that-attatches-to-the-wagon-barbecue sausage buttie before we began.

Miss Rolo as usual was being her steady, well behaved self – looking all squeaky clean and newly polished for the camera.

The first class British Novice – one of the first times they have competed together at this height and what a corking job they made of it …

British Novice – First Round

… after storming through the first round with a definite clear round, they entered the jump off…

British Novice – Jump Off

… true to form they made an equally triumphant job of that gaining a fantastic DOUBLE CLEAR – congratulations to them both.

Not to be beaten they decided to go the whole hog and jump their biggest competition to date and enter the Discovery (this braveness has been attributed to the watching of Tomb Raider and deciding that if Lara Croft could be that brave than how hard could a 1.05m track be!!)

Much to our delight (but certainly not surprise – we knew they could pull it off easily) they made an equally fab job of the Discovery as well and claimed another clear round …

Discovery – first round – clear

So here we go the Discovery Jump Off …

Miss Rolo and Faye’s Discovery Jump Off

… unfortunately they had 4 faults but a pretty round all the same … after musc video analysing it was a unanimous decision that those 4 faults were just bloody unlucky!

Stand Up For The Champions …

Horse: Mr Grey - May 4th, 2011

24t h April was a very special day for lane End … it loomed bright and sunny, the first one of our local Area 14 a british Showjumping shows. It was a nice casual set off (for once ) as our classes didn’t start until about 1pm – there was even time for a specially barbecued (in the new special gas-that-attatches-to-the-wagon-barbecue sausage buttie before we began.

Mr. Grey was on top form he was chilled, had a pleasant, relaxed journey and was as clean as a whistle (always a novelty for mr. Grey (NB. ‘note to self: NEVER buy a grey horse!’)).

He stood like a gentlemen to have his studs fitted – a first time for him to our knowledge and performed well in the collecting ring – jumping well clear of his 90cm target.

Into the ring he went and managed a lovely, steady clear round … 

Mr Grey and Matthew Mayvers – British Novice

Thinking that it would be fab to come home from our first outdoor show with a double clear they went into the Jump off and made a sterling effort with another lovely round …

The Winning Jump Off! 

only to go and win pulling in the first  Lane End red rosette of the outdoor season …

Before the next class Mr. Grey went and had a bit of a chill in the wagon a well earned pint (of water).

Coming into the collecting ring for the second time, before his Discovery class, he naturally took it in his stride andnd again was jumping well clear of his 1m target – what a little star!

Mr Grey and Matthew – Discovery First Round

Into the ring – same old jumps different order and height he did exceptionally well and put in a second lovely clear round …

Mr Grey and Matthew – Discovery Jump Off – Winning Manouveres!

Much to our extreme delight the prize money was theirs again pulling in the second Lane End red rosette of the season

fan-flipping-tastic!

What’s Poppy up to …

Horse: Poppy - April 1st, 2011

Being a star as usual Poppy wenet for her very first dressage lesson last week. Despite the fact we usually take her on her travels i the wagon she loaded/unloaded and travelled in the trailer – much to our delight she behaved impeccably.

It was a half an hour journey and when she arrived she stood in the trailer and waited quietly while gray was having his lesson – probably had a little snooze knowing Poppy!

She did really well in her lesson and both rider and horse were quite shattered! She is learning to go forward more and took on all the challenges that were thrown at her really well.

She has been for a couple of hacks out in glorious sunshine (unfortunately that has changed!) and loves it – she is now confident enough to go out by herself which is great.

She’s been up in the school quite a bit and is learning to combat trotting and cross poles – a little uncertain at first she is soon learning to take it in her stride.

She had a day out in the field with Jigsaw and had a great time (well she must have done she came back in mud from head to tail!).

The last few days the weather has been rubbish for going out in the field so she has spent time going in the horsewalker, being ridden, eating and sleeping (in both of the latter she is definitely a proffessional!)

All in all Poppy has had a varied couple of weeks and is still doing really well considereing she is our baby …
