Down time, surgery and a new home for Vino

William was class - despite the fact that I came out of the dressage saying this, that and the other he obviously did well as he scored 23.5.

Train with me online and in person! - The Vault

Excited to be launching The Vault on 25th May it is my online Training and Mentorship platform. This is aimed at new and aspiring Eventers up to Novice level. There will be tutorial videos, private Facebook group, Facebook hot seat Q and A, checklists, monthly interviews with industry greats and much more. There is also the opportunity for me to act as Mentor to some riders. The idea is that those that sign up will request training topics that they would find helpful and I will then do training videos accordingly.

It was fascinating to have the chance to watch this and take away so many training tips.

This was planning the next few months website changes and social media structure combined with new plans for the new year. More news on this over the next few months!!
