29th - 31st August - New Forest Breed Show
Saturday - Stallion Day
We went in convoy on Saturday taking 4 boys, Sportaide and his 2 sons, Marinaide and Accolaide and then Burley Barrister. Sportaide enjoyed is annual outing by making as much noise as possible to ensure everyone knew he was there! He took part in the Veteren Stallion class and was the oldest in the class at 23yrs and came 4th.
Furzley Marinaide - 2nd in the large forest run stallion class, best 4yr old forest stallion and was awarded a 1st premium
Furzley Accolaide - 3rd in the 3yr old stud colt class, however this week has been very busy for Accolaide having started to be sat on for the first time. He has been fabulous and not batted an eyelid, the plan is that he will swap places with Serenaide (currently in Kent) when she returns to the stud in approx a months time to start her maternity leave
Burley Barrister - 1st in the yearling class
Sunday - Performance Day
Sadly this day didn't go as well as initially planned, missing a few classes due to clashes!
Furzley Serenaide - 3rd in the combined training (70% in the dressage and clear in the SJ)
Furzley Marinaide - Prelim dressage grading (G1) 60%, this was great experience with Marinaide, the test started amazingly, 7,7,7,8,7 however then some incorrect legs for the initial canter and a lack of impulsion bought the scores down, however a very positive start for a 4yr old and helps us know what we need to work on. We will be attending the grading day to attempt this again as he should also have more energy as will not be 'going out' the day before!
Furzley Crusaide - 1st junior ridden and 3rd in the family pony (privately owned)
Monday - Inhand Day
This has been our quietest Inhand day at the breed show for years with only one pony! However after a busy boys day, it was appreciated!

A fantastic final day for the stud!!
23rd August - Felbridge - BSJA

9th August - Chilham Castle - British Eventing
Sadly our 2nd affiliated event of the year didn't go to plan, I had been feeling rough for a few days and the day after was diagnosed with swine flu and quarentined for 5 days! So I was already relying on my lil mare to do all the work which was a lot to ask! However the dressage went ok and we were 4th overall! The jumping was always going to be fun as I had no strength to my lower leg, I had one stop in the showjumping and two stops cross country however she enjoyed herself and now has a full week off too!

4th July - Affiliated British Event - Eridge Park - BE90
What a day!! After walking the course Friday night I was in a mild panic, the first half was quite a nice course, however the 2nd part had some big, up to height fences and some interesting combinations! However my main concern was if she'd manage the entire way round due to her fitness which we have struggled to improve since being scanned in foal.
So on the day we did BE91 in the dressage, quite a simple test and we had 77% which was 3rd overall in the section. We then had a long wait til the show jumping, having not jumped a course since our '08' grading. I was slightly worried, however we flew round and really enjoyed it which filled me with confidence for the final section. So onto the XC, she really enjoyed it and flew round. Eridge is very undulating so we went very steady on the downhill sections as it was my priority to finish, regardless of time. She negotiated the fences really well, except for having one stop at a huge, freshly creosoted log pile, she flew the rest, even a huge, square, solid fence designed as a straw wagon that gave me nightmares the night before! So in a group of approx. 35, we came 14th, as a refusal in the XC if 20 faults it has a huge effect on the scores, however if we hadn't of stopped and with the time faults we had at XC then we probably would have been 6th or 7th!
Now to enter the next event seeing as she has proved to me she can manage something whilst being in foal!

However we did manage to get into the two prelim dressage tests with Marinaide, his first ever prelims! A marked improvement between them of 10%, ending on 65.5% with the 2nd test.
