Once again we had a very successful and fun filled few days at the Nationals 2014! Including filming our take off ‘Aldi’ adverts (Sam Brown :-) )
We had a great team with us including horses, riders, grooms and all the supporters and certainly not forgetting everyone who keeps the yard running at home!
We had nearly all top ten placings – including of course Carinsio who won the Advanced Medium Open class and coming second to Farouche in the PSG! Not bad at all!
Jo Cooper’s Eureko did very well with Becky coming 6th in the 5 year old Potential International Class. Jo only bought him a few months ago from Holland through Rebecca Dudley and he has had great success already. It was also lovely to have Rebecca come to watch at the Nationals and stay with us :-)
Nora and Caluna also did very well achieving top ten places in the Elementary for Nora and Becky and the Inter 11 for Caluna and Hannah.

We had several clients from the yard competing at the Nationals who were successful, including Elli on Fitz, Bea on Zara, Grace on Eden, Melissa on Diva and Eilidh on Beau – we are very proud of you all!

Guinea pig riders for UKCC level 3 training day, at Gunthwaite, near Penistone, S36 7GE
We need 8 riders, working at or towards advanced medium level. Restricted riders at this level would be ideal, but anyone who is willing to come, even if you are riding at a lower level, please get in touch with Hannah! :)(firstname.lastname@example.org
Free drinks and biscuits!
You will get a free lesson with a coach who is working towards their UKCC level 3 qualification. Your session will be about 35 mins.
Moody Dressage is starting a club night over the winter months. This will happen weekly on a Monday night, and the sessions will run for four weeks at a time. It’s a great opportunity to exercise your horse in the comfort of an indoor school, with help from either Hannah, Becky or one of our apprentices. Each session will cost £12, so on the first night of each block, payment will need to be made for all four sessions. (£ 48) Hot and cold drinks and biscuits will be available in the ‘shack’, (there will be an honesty box in operation). Session times are: 4.30 – Kate, Isabel, Jo, Esme, Carol 5.15 – Deborah, Jill 6.00 – Olivia, Elizabeth, Jo, Sharon 6.45 – Tori, Carla, Jess, Nat, Fiona 7.30 – Carole, Beverley A maximum number of 6 riders per session is allowed, and the cost remains the same regardless of numbers. The first block starts on Monday 6th October. If you are interested please get in touch: email@example.com.
Whilst the sun has been out we thought we would make the most of it and take some photos of the fantastic team we work with at Moody Dressage and the super horses we are lucky enough to have.
Eva loves to join in too…
Wait for me!
Such a happy workforce shovelling the s**t!

Supermodel Caluna – although she likes her food a bit too much to be a proper supermodel!
Could be the next ‘pas de deux’ team?!
Working at home….

I think we can say we have an excellent, fun team with amazing, happy horses – and we like to thank everyone who is part of Moody Dressage in making it a success :-)
We went upto Julies last week to see the babies. Below are a few pics of adorable foals through to the rather fat looking 3 year olds :-)

Julie has had a couple of foals so far this year – ‘James Bond’ x Ceaser out of Ballerina and ‘Just Wilham’ x Furst Wilhem out of Ruby :-) They are both adorable little boys! More pics to come when the weather improves!
The most adorable foal EVER! Just Wilham
Although getting a bit wet we had a good show and we were kept entertained by Eva (below)
Grace had an exceptional show winning 2 of the 5 year old classes on Eden :-) and Jo’s new horse Eureko (Bert) who has only been in the country for 3 weeks came 2nd in 2 of the 5 year old classes also qualfying for the Nationals and Hickstead! We have to thank Rebecca Dudley in Holland for finding these horses for Grace & Jo :-)
Eden and Bert posing!
Bert looking quite pleased with himself!
Julie Lockey’s super mare Caluna had a great show with both Hannah and Becky, getting 66+% in the Inter 11 with Hannah and a top 10 placing in a big class and scoring 65+% and 67+% with Becky in the GP and GP Special placed 4th and 5th – not far behind Carl Hester :-)
Carinsio was a star after being v hot on the first evening we were there – he settled and pulled 70+% and 72+% out of the bag in the PSGs coming 2nd to Farouche :-)
Several of Hannah & Beckys clients also competed and achieved some good scores – well done – we are very proud of the successes of all ‘Moody Dressage’s’ clients and pupils, everyone is doing a fab job and working hard.
None of this would be possible without all the staff at home who are fantastic at looking after the horses, making sure they are happy and look beautiful – Thank you :-)
