A venture to the ‘Dark Side’ aka the Show Ring - by Debbie Tatton

Posted by Debbie Tatton on Sunday, October 14, 2012, In : 2012 

This was how someone described the showing world when I told them my plans for Abbey and me this year. The experience, however, was really positive and I needed an excuse to dress up posh for a change!

We were due to compete at the Oaks Open Show back in August but I managed to sprain my ankle at Bradbourne days before the show. So a visit to A & E courtesy of Sara, an X-ray and a crutch put paid to our showing debut. But we did enjoy the cones day and BBQ at the yard on the same day i...

Sandringham Castle, Norfolk. 29th June - 1st July 2012.

Posted by Team Gingers on Monday, July 2, 2012, In : 2012 
Preparations began a few days ago  for the Gingers next big party this week at Sandringham Castle, Norfolk on 29th, 30th  June and 1st July 2012.

It started with all the bathing , trimming and smartening up of the totties,   but they still had their turn out in the paddock  and promptly rolled in the dust much to Sarah Mac's disgust after all her hard work.

On Monday 25th  along came Paul the farrier to give all 5 gingers a new set of party shoes.

We had a bit of worry last week when Sara's...

Ashfields Biggie - and what a result !

Posted by Polly Ruddle on Sunday, June 3, 2012, In : 2012 
Well, just getting all excited for Sara's next big Event at Ashfields on 4th – 6th May,  but we were all on tenterhooks as to whether it would go ahead or not, you can imagine why !  RAIN, RAIN and more RAIN.  But thankfully as we got a few days closer to the off,  we had a few breaks and the weather turned,  ( a bit ) .

On the morning they were leaving I even got up early to go and wave them off and watch my pony Amble load up into the lorry. They were all very excited as this is the...

Q1 Results, lost wheels and dodgy weather ... and all in the name of fun !

Posted by Susan Cox on Thursday, March 29, 2012, In : 2012 
We began the year on Jan 2nd with our yearly little mini one day event at home.  We had a very good day, weather was really good and loads of competitors of all ages, couple of juniors, O A P (me)  and the rest. 

On Sat 25th Feb was the annual Quiz Night.  This year the questions were set by the White family as they were last year's winners. There was a very good turnout - at least 30 + people.    There were 5 or 6  different categories and a Joker to be played.   One whole table was ma...
