Well it's been a while since my last blog, so I thought I would give you a brief insight into what we have been up to!
With the closing for voting at the Equine Social Media Awards al finalists had to make 2 videos, 1 an acceptance speech, the other a message of support for other finalists. Well, not being one to sit in front of even a camera without going the colour of beetroot, the thought of actually performing for a video, well, I can assure you that was one uncomfortable thought! However, with a lot of help from Nicki Strong and my daughters excellent computer video skills, and 5 hours of torture, we made them, what a night that was! There was an awful lot of laughter and almost some tears, but we completed our task, and finally within a few minutes of the deadline, I submitted them. Thankfully they arrived at their destination and downloaded well, all we have to do now is await the final judging.....
Our new Team Kilminster member Sahara has settled in well and enjoying being ridden around our local villages, while at weekends she is thoroughly pampered by Martin and worked in the school. We are still working on her fitness before looking at competitions for her. But watch this space as she could be ready fairly soon..
Monty update: With the poor weather, it delayed our training, and the first day the ground was good again, he came in without a shoe!!!! Typical! Good job my farrier could come out and replace it soon, he doesn't do well in bare feet, so we had to take it steady, however now we are back up and running again and looking out for a competitoin as son as we can. Below is one of our most recent pictures taken by Martin at the weekend of a schooling session:
