Some days, you shouldn't even bother getting out of bed...

Some days, you shouldn't even bother getting out of bed...

I'm talking about last Monday. A pretty crap day, by any standard. I won't drone on too much (that's not my style, now is it?) but here's the lowdown... The day started off well enough. Pauline Beulze was staying with Alexandrine (they're long-time friend...

Championnat 2015 - Part 3

I'm going to go back a year before I fill you in on the second day of competition at Le Championnat. Last year, the Equifeel organising committee introduced a drastic new rule for competition, which was intended to eliminate the possibility of abuse.

Happy birthday to me from my Boys!

(A little late with this, but better late than never.) I'm not a big jewellery wearer, so I surprised the LSH when I told him I wanted a bracelet for my birthday. I made it simple for him - I did all the ordering myself.

Spectacle Equestre!

The LSH has never liked performing animals, so I was surprised when he gave me two tickets to a Spectacle Equestre for our recent anniversary. Apparently there was a new Salon de Cheval taking place in Marseille, with a Gala performance in the evenings. C...

What a week it's been - and there's more to come. It'll take a while to catch up, but I'll start with the Equifeel competition at Joucas last Sunday. Once again, I had transport issues. My trailer has a nice new floor, complete with rubber goop poured on ...
