Alex Norris, Junior Eventer, prepares for 2016 season

minnie-moo-goring-15-cropAlex writes: The 2016 season is nearly upon us and we have been training hard all winter in preparation. My main ride, Minnie Moo, is going better than ever on the flat after some intensive training. We will have to wait and see whether she keeps her cool, so she can perform to her full potential at competitions! We have some Junior Training with Caroline Moore coming up, as well as a combined training. Our goals for her this year are to move up to intermediate and aim for the Junior trial at Brand Hall in May. Before that, we start the season with Morton Open Novice at the beginning of March and all being well Aldon Open Intermediate under 21 event.

Dassett Two for Joy (“Riki”) has also been training well, but due to logistics he is going to start his eventing season a little later. Our lovely youngster Frank has had an easy winter but is back in full work now and aiming for some BE90 classes. Roll on the first event!
