Absolutely thrilled with Rockie today - he had a ball at a small youngstock show, loved showing himself off and had fabulous feedback from the judge about his movement. Really happy to win his class and then the 2/3 yo championship, even taking home a bag of feed as a prize! He definitely enjoyed himself and was a joy to deal with so many boxes ticked today. #retrainedracehorse #ror #retrainingofracehorses #ottb #exracer #exracehorse #threeyearold #inhand #champion
Beautiful #chilly #frosty #december morning here in #leicestershire!
Enjoyed a lovely hack out round a new route with Jo and Mo today, and surprisingly few mishaps apart from almost being shot and getting a bit lost a couple of times sending us right through a forestry logging operation (bombproof around heavy machinery - tick!) - horses enjoyed the afternoon though! #happyhacking #hiviz #countryside #woodland #forest #sheep #exracehorse #exracer #ottb #ror
First ride 😍😍 He was a superstar, of course! ♥οΈπŸ‡πŸ»πŸ‡πŸ»♥️ #exracehorse #exracer #ror #ottb #thoroughbredsofinstagram #tb #retrainedracehorse
Today was a bit of a special day as I took delivery of the stunning Straightothepoint from @bryan_smart_racing - I’m so grateful to them for selecting me to take on this beautiful horse when he ended his racing career. I even won some money on him in his last race! He has a very kind and gentle personality and his successful career showed a hard work ethic too. I am so excited to find out what the future holds now and see how he fills the Chucka shaped hole in my life and heart. πŸ’•πŸ‡πŸ»πŸ‡πŸ»πŸ˜ #exracehorse #exracer #ror #ottb #retrainingofracehorses #retrainedracehorse
Thanks for that Mo, I’ll just magic up a new #premierequine liner, I hope your fully clipped ass got cold! πŸ˜‚ #badhorse #rugwrecker #oops #thoroughbred #thoroughbredsofinstagram #exracehorse #exracehorsesofinstagram
Game changer!! My Christmas present to the horses - no more smelly soggy rugs hanging around, a cosy warm tackroom upgrade! #horseyhack #upgrade #gadget #horserugdryer  #howdidilivewithoutit
Professional photo from the talented @majesticphotography1 from the @retraining_of_racehorses  Showcase in November. 😍 #retrainingofracehorses #retrainedracehorse #exracehorse #exracer #ror #ottb #racehorsetoeventhorse #exracehorsesofinstagram #thoroughbred #mare
A productive afternoon collecting some dressage points for the @retraining_of_racehorses Regional Leagues. The day started a bit stressful when she pulled a shoe in her stable in temper as I turned the rest of the horses out and not her - thankfully I have an AMAZING farrier who will come over on a Sunday morning to save the day! #wonderfarrier #retrainingofracehorses #dressage #racehorsetodressagehorse #retrainedracehorse #ror #ottb #exracer #exracehorse
You know when they do nursery or preschool ‘graduations’ - and dress toddlers up in ridiculous gowns and mortar boards like adults? Seeing little baby 🍊 all plaited up out in public looks like that! First show done: wrestled into plaits, loaded and travelled beautifully, stood around learning how to be bored, didn’t draw blood from me or traumatise the judge βœ…πŸ‘ŒπŸ» #exracehorse #exracer #exracehorsesofinstagram #chestnuthorse #younghorse #thoroughred #thoroughbredsofinstagram #ror #ottb
The lovely cheeky Charlie (Coursey Rover) has been with me for a whole year today. I think he’s changed a little - scroll right to see the ‘before’ 😒. It’s worth noting that he was an absolute trooper as a racehorse and the industry and all in it treated him very well and ensured him a new life outside of racing and this happened 2 years out of leaving training. I am in contact with many of his past trainers, jockeys and stable staff who all spoke so highly of him. I only just caught enough light at the end of the day to scrape mud off and grab a commemorative photo today - he is enjoying retirement and still living out 24/7, and hopefully will do so for most of the winter de to arthritis in his neck alongside some other health issues, stabling isn’t a great option for him. #exracehorsesofinstagram #thoroughbredsofinstagram #thoroughbred #tb #ottb #exracer #projecthorse #happyhealthyhorse

I’ve been enjoying product testing this little gadget from @horseware - the HorsePal blanket/rug monitor. It’s new in stock at our local retailer @equestriana.uk and Kristina asked me to try it out and feedback for her clients! Full details on my FB page.... #horseware #horsepal #blanket #rug #rugging #equestrian #technology #equestriana
Only the second ride - spending all that extra time on groundwork has really paid off. He’s still rather downhill but I love how forward and willing he is to establish a connection with me at the end of the rein - and how happy he looks! Going forward from here he only needs to do one, at most two days a week, and that will be mainly hacking once we are a bit more established - as for us that involves trips out in the lorry not just riding off the yard, so that’s the  next life lesson to learn - but at least he has been out and travelled around in his racing career before. #younghorse #training #thoroughbred #exracehorse #ror #ottb #exracer #chestnut
Clever ponies - Chucka picked up all 10 points at Solihull and Mo only did one RoR event at Shelford! It got me thinking to what next season will hold, and resetting my goals. I will have to completely rethink my yearly plans now which were all oriented towards my ambition of producing a horse off the track to CCI*. Might take a few more years but all the more determined now! #retrainingofracehorses #ror #racehorsetoeventhorse #retrainedracehorse #britisheventing #eventing
So this happened ... 😍😍 He was perfect and really balanced, polite and confident - 4 months of groundwork paid off! #younghorse #retrainedracehorse #exracer #ror #ottb #chestnut
My little 🍊 teachers pet! I’m so glad I took my time with Rockie, not least because I absolutely love this phase, it’s as much for me to learn about him as it is for him to learn new things. He is super clever and loves something to think about, and has never given me a moments trouble, but I wanted to give him added time to physically and mentally mature over the last 4 months since he came out of training. (He is 3). I am so excited to sit on him now! 😍 I see so much of Chucka in him - he’s going to be a very special little sort-of-brown horse β€οΈπŸ‡πŸ»πŸ‡πŸ»β€οΈ #younghorse #exracehorse #retrainedracehorse #ror #ottb #exracer #exracer #chestnuthorse
