Been finalising plans tonight for my first ever Canadian clinic at the beginning of May. Really excited about this and looking forward to meeting all those who are coming!
Some great news this evening. Catherine Jones who lives in New Zealand contacted me when I was over there in January and told me about her daughter, Lauren's accident with her horse and asked if I wouldn't mind wishing her well, which of course I was happy to do. Well, five weeks on after sustaining a broken pelvis in three places from a horse rearing and crushing her, she was starting to walk again. She thankfully celebrated her 16th birthday at home, in a wheelchair but more importantly is now on the road to recovery and aiming to ride again. Lauren, you have been incredibly brave and Im so glad it hasn't knocked your belief in horses. Good luck with the rest of your recovery. Keep smiling, stay positive and I look forward to hearing all about your progress and seeing a picture of you on a horse again. x
We all know how important mums (and dads) play in our lives especially with supporting our horsey dreams. With Mother’s Day less than a week away, I want to suggest, as their ambassador, about visiting the Brooke Shop for a gift that lasts way past flowers and chocolates. The gift of a portable water trough (£25) can help The Brooke enable hardworking animals around the world to enjoy clean water wherever they are, and you can help keep a clinic caring (£56) with the medicines needed to nurse animals back to health. Every gift you buy will come complete with a lovely gift card and a certificate for you to personalise and give on the special day. Just an idea. Of course, my mum will also get the flowers and chocolates but I know she would also love a gift like this being as passionate about horses and their welfare as I am x www.thebrookeshop.org
I’m so impressed with the great gifts in the Brooke Shop. They’re a quirky way to show you care on birthdays, Christmas and any other special occasion. Whether you choose new horseshoes or comforting blankets, you can be confident you’ll not only be buying something really original and thoughtful –…
What an amazing few days in Denmark amongst beautiful horses and the most welcoming and friendly people, not to mention the extra treat of seeing Katy Perry in concert. I'm very excited to also tell you that one of the first foals of the season from the Mount St John Stud, MSJ Finest Hour will be joining our family of horses. MSJ Finest Hour (Finest x Don Schufro x Brentano II) is a little cutie and a great example of the exceptional breeding programme at the Mount St John Stud. Very excited for his future and watching him grow! Little clip of him here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXfNvny0iTA and another :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCybbmugE54
