April Blog

This month it’s a shorter blog as I have put our Belgium adventure into its own blog.

I’ve got TikTok @mariparadressage

Damo had his monthly sports massage which he thoroughly enjoyed. It was great to hear how good he felt from Lee.

When I can I have been fitting in sessions at Performance Hertfordshire which I thoroughly enjoy. Fiona my S and C coach is amazing; I have been sharing some videos on my social media channels about what I do in my sessions. I have been hitting lots of PB’s recently.

My amazing sponsors Sorbeo Horse Bedding is now officially grown in Britian certified. From Sorbeo ‘There is growing emphasis on the importance of knowing where products are grown and produced. Grown in Britain certification encourages and supports active and sustainable management of our own forests and woodlands reducing unnecessary imports.’

I feel like we have turned a corner with Damo he has been going well in training; very excited to get him back into the white boards. Damo is looking fantastic and feeling super supple thanks to Betta Life’s PharmaQUIN and PharmaTRAC.

Ruth Wyatt came out to check Damo’s saddle and made some adjustments as the saddle had been feeling slightly unstable. The heavens opened so I let mum do the riding and I had already been in the gym. Ruth also had a look at Bears saddle, and it was great to hear that he has muscled out; he is thoroughly enjoying being back in work.

Once Athene was back from Belgium she had a lovely Sports Massage from Lee. Great to hear she felt good after the competing and travelling. Athene really enjoyed it and is looking forward to her next one already!

We needed points to qualify for the summers with Damo, so we headed off to Wellington. Emily came with us and warmed him up. I am so proud of Damo he was super relaxed and took everything in his big stride. In the first test we got 71%+ and won. In the second test unfortunately, Damo needed to do a poo and wasn’t fully with me until he did one but then he stopped; very costly but we finished on a good note. We still need some more points so will have to go out again.

Finishing this month with some good news I have been accepted onto the Sporting Champions scheme again. I cannot thank them enough for their continued support and really enjoy training at the Chiltern Lifestyle Centre which is close to my house.
