We have had a few good articles printed about the horses. In one article about tack fitting and safety the very photogenic Renkum Capitano got his photo from the young horse championships on a whole page of Your Horse Magazine. A complete surprise as we weren’t expecting that at all. More recently we had a journalist and photographer also from Your Horse Magazine visit the yard to take photos for an article about bonding with your horse. This was in the December 2019 issue. We had loads of fun being models and the horses loved all the extra attention. Even the yard cat the famous Hedgerow The Cat got in the photos!
Meanwhile on the competition front Captain had a mention and his photo in Horse and Hound for his successful winning Autumn Eventing Campaign. Both Renkum Chief and Renkum Capitano are in the top ten of the British ShowJumping National Bronze league. This is following a really good winter season show jumping with lots of money won and more importantly both boys have qualified for the Blue Chip BS Winter Champs at Hartpury. Very exciting.
I have been working very hard on my dressage this winter as I so badly want to get not good scores but great scores. Only time will tell if the work has paid off, its a phase I always struggle with. I find that is a positive thing as finding dressage hard makes me a better coach to help others as I apply my own learning, penny dropping lightbulb moments to my coaching skills!
5 year old Desmond and 4 year old Renkum Electric Zed are both adorable gentle & kind horses and both love their work, I can’t ask more that that from young horses. They have both started doing little show outings and are a pleasure to take out.
