Competitive endurance rides

Jessica and Chamfron Colorado had their first 30km competitive ride of the season at Leanachan and achieved SC1 Gold, 11.3kph, HR out 30 HR return 32 and picked up best condition.  They also picked up their end of season rosettes and trophies - Freddie cup - Novice horse up to BTF with the most miles in Argyll.  Scammadale Quaich - most pleasure miles in Argyll.  Dylan’s Trophy - Most Argyll rides ( joint winners with Hazel McCorkindale) and his 250km, 500km and 750km mileage rosettes.  Rebecca and Chamfron By Dand were at Whitelees (the wind farm!).  Heart rate out 37 in 42.  His boot broke but it didn't bother him despite the hardcore tracks.  Averaging about 12kph sc2 gold.  This success was all down to a pre ride training involving regular "wooshing" noises to get used to the turbines!

Sun's out, rug's off!

It's been a very different winter this year, milder, probably wetter and certainly a lot windier.  So far there has been nothing more than a light sprinkling of snow and very few hard frosts.  Spidey made the most of his first rug free day of 2022, gently steaming as the sun started to hit his paddock this morning.

Cat's out the bag!!

So, we eloped, four miles away to the other side of the Eildons and Roulotte Retreat, three days of roasting in the eco hot tub, snacking on our "White Horse at Home" seafood feast, cake, more cake, cake washed down with champagne and cake for breakfast.  Followed by a bit of wildlife spotting then home with the husband!
