7.NOV.17 - New sponsored rider
I’m excited to announce the first of my sponsored riders is Beth Eckley (Beth Eckley Equestrian Services)
'My Name is Bethan Eckley and I'm a 29 year old freelance rider covering the south Herefordshire area. I am currently competing two ex racehorses- Quickbeam who is 15yo and he competes in affiliated dressage up to Elementary and this year he qualified for the RoR national championships where he won his warm up class. We have also won the Novice/Eleme...ntary Bearcroft challenge held at Allens Hill, amassing the most points of any ex racehorse. Sustainability is a 12 yo who has this season started team chasing with "The Cunning Stunts" team. He has been placed twice at Intermediate level this season. He also qualified for and was placed at the South West and Wales riding club regional championships.
I can't wait as to what 2018 will bring us with ambitions for Quickbeam to step up to Medium level, try some dressage to music and qualify for the RoR championships and the Midway championships and for Sustainability I would love to step up to Open team chasing and to continue representing our riding club at showjumping.'

22.FEB.16 - Horses Inside Out conference
I have just returned from the 2-day conference run by Horses Inside Out. Some fascinating speakers and so much to learn. In particular, the difficulties diagnosising conditions on the back. As the horse is too large to fit in an MRI scanner, diagnositic imaging of the back is limited to CT, ultrasound and scintigraphy. To complicate matters, interpretation of these images can be challenging. Whilst images of some horses' backs is indicative of kissing spine, clinical signs does not suggest pain or problem, whilst some horses may have clinical signs but the images show very little pathology. It is vital to understand the individual horse in diagnosing and treatment disease of the back.
31.MAR.15 - First Aid Course
I have now completed the BHS 2-day initial first aid course. This is a comprehensive course that covers all aspects of first aid from new borns to adults, burns to cardiac arrest, but there is some specific information to horse riders including head injuries and broken bones.
17.JUL.14 - Sponsorship of Team GBR rider
I am pleased to be sponsoring World Equestrian Games 2014 Team GBR endurance rider Abbi Tennant and horse Barik. Barik will benefit from equine sports massage as part of his preparation for
the FEI 3* 160km race on the 28th August. Sports massage will ensure he is physically at his peak, is not affected by muscle conditions such as strains, spasms or tension, and is supple
through a full range of movement.
