The spice of life...

One of the best bits of any weekend is hearing about what the former rehab horses have been up to and at this time of year there is so much going on it can be hard to keep up!
Lots of them have been out hacking, like Alfie and Will, making the most of a perfect spring day and building "mighty" hooves, as Will describes them, at the same time.
A whole posse, including Holly and Claire (above), Prince and Fiona (below) and Isla and Becca, went XC schooling with a picnic - surely one of the best ways to spend a day?! 
One of my favourite video clips of the weekend was of Danielle and Ginger blasting over a course of jumps. Ginger was here 4 years ago and is now 22 yrs old but he still absolutely nailed it. 
Meanwhile, others were out flying the dressage flag - and rather successfully I might add. Paddy and Emma won their first test and were placed in their second...
Kate and Rolie had an incredible day: "Rolie totally smashed it at Yorkshire Dressage today, 70+% in our Elementary test. Something I never thought we'd achieve - so proud of him!" 
Successes like these are heart-warming and so well deserved but for me its just as satisfying to see a photo like this - Domino, who was here 3 years ago, being the ultimate family pony...
What a hero he is!

Well done everyone and keep up the good work!
