The team had a very successful trip to the first Hickstead of the season! We had 3 horses competing from our stables, with a couple of other horses and riders jumping who also train with us. ✨
Qlipper Blossom VD Bleuken produced nothing but impressive clear rounds throughout the show, starting our Hickstead season as we mean to go on!
Hannah and Flynn jumped some great rounds, which included being placed out of a class of nearly 200 riders!
Ellie and OS Chateau Latour had a very successful show, stepping up to the 1.20 classes with ease, looking promising for the summer ahead.
All of the OGS students showcased their work and training we have been doing throughout the year to work towards jumping these more technical and challenging tracks like the ones at Hickstead. All horses and riders did the team proud!
Now back to work, to prepare for the next show.
We’ve all been busy on the yard working and training in preparation for the next shows. Both the horses and ponies have been out weekly at training shows, which enables our riders to have the show courses and atmosphere but without the pressure.
These shows have been great to get our team set up for the busy few months we all have coming up! This week Luigi, Jabari,Qlipper Blossom and KPH Flynn all attended Codham training show, each jumping great rounds ready to get back into a competition.🏵️
The rider of the week is Hannah Brown. The training and dedication Hannah has put into her riding has impressed everyone and now her hard work is showing through her great results, stepping up and jumping clear round 1.10. 💫 We are so proud of Hannah and can’t wait to see her and Flynn continue to progress throughout the summer! 💙💫
Next up for the ponies is 3 days competing at the Wales mixed show. 🏴
Amalie will be jumping her 2 ponies, Coshla Phillipa and Krisoleto Van Orchid.
Ready to put all of Amalie’s hard work into practice. 💪🏼
A successful weekend was had for the horses at Dallas Burton!
Luigi, Qlipper Blossom, Jabari and Os Chateau Latour all jumped some great clears, picking up placings and jumping impressive rounds! 🚀
Qlipper Blossom was the star of day 1, finishing 7th in a strong class. 🏵️

Our work and training throughout the winter is paying off, with each horse, pony and rider improving every show we go too.
The summer season is looking very exciting for our team! 💙
