Show time! In pictures

I’ve not been active at all this week I’ve been totally overwhelmed with work, vets and being super sleepy.

As you all know I competed last week on my Millie and Zimmy, one of our liveries. 

We had an awesome photographer there as well –Equine photography by Daisy – she also edits, mounts and even puts your picture on a canvas or keyring! Her page is fairly new so do give it a like to watch her progress and find out about horsey events she’s at! 

As I mentioned in my blog posts about the show and my lazy riding that Zimmy and I haven’t been going so well lately but my naughty, hormonal Millie was outstanding with 61.52% on our first ever test/show. Considering she has thrown me off so many times in the past few months to a year, with multiple falls in one thirty minutes session and one time through a wooden fence I think that’s fantastic. 

First up her are some picture of Zimmy and I: 


Just as tense as each other


I love photos in canter, they look so graceful but we know how much work it takes to keep you bum where it should be. Photos like these are a lot like looking at a swan – so peaceful above the surface but underneath they’re working overtime. 


I love show shot of Zimmy. (But how uneven are my hands!!!) 


Free walk on a LONG rein – not a loose rein next time.


Obviously these are taken on different tests. But it’s the best part of every test ….. the end. 


Got my game face on! Zimmy? Not so much. 


Breathing and relaxing for the first time since the test started. Every competitor can relate. 

Now for Millie and I: 


Doesn’t she shine!? 

Not round but still pretty. 

So excited for the next show! To improve and get better score. Looking at photos is always good to make little tweaks to your riding and position. But ever since my post from my first ever show. The nerves are still overwhelming! 

Catch you laters,

Horses on my camera roll

My camera is FULL of horses, so I thought I’d put together a post dedicated so some of my absolute favourites…. (please note that some horses are sillier than others and will be featured multiple times) 

She refused to make eye contact with me after reading her board
He has got the best spot considering he’s right by the feed room and people have to walk past with feed bowls

It’s so tiring being born and all that
Is that a pony nut? I don’t know! I’m still learning
I thought it was only dogs that sniff butts…

She didn’t think it was fair that only the cowboys got to wear funky hats
“Of course I’ll share with you, tiny horse”
Molasses monster!
Yes, that is in fact seaweed (my mum is going to KILL me for this one)

Get you a man who can do both
urm. what’s that?

“You’re new here? I’ve not seen your breeding before”

He ALWAYS tries to eat the peak of my hat
I NEED ATTENTION PLEEEEEEEASE
Catch ya laters,
