(Kathy had 24 faults, that's 5 poles down - but its the first time she's managed to complete the course, so we're thrilled!

  1. Helen, thanks for sharing. They're great pictures. It's so nice to see your daughter pursuing her passion for equestrian sport. To finish such a difficult course is such an accomplishment. You must be very proud. : )

    1. Yes I am proud, we've struggled over the years to help Kathy with her sport, its been hard, financially, at timesd - but it has never been about the winning, its been about enjoying it. Getting round is a huge achievement!

Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
