Well what a fantastic start to the 2015 Premier Leagues! With 8 matching rugs won, we have quite a collection! Jack won all his classes with Becky, Tirsa won hers and came 2nd to Jack :-) and Hannah won the Grand Prix and GP Freestyle and came second in the Inter 11.
The 4 & 5 year olds did us proud in the very strong Young Horse Classes, and we are very excited about their futures!
We would like to thank all the owners who make this possible, Anne & Patrick Moody, Julie Lockey, Dee Parker and Jo Cooper and of course all the team on the yard who look after the horses to an amazingly high standard :-)
Jack aka Carinsio would also like to thank all his fan club…….

All in all we have had great success at Bishop Burton and Myerscough Regionals. Everyone from the yard got a top ten placing, with several combinations qualifying for the Winter Championships at Hartpury as follows:
Becky & Carinsio for the PSG Freestyle
Becky & Tirsa for the PSG Freestyle
Kirsty & Widor for the Advanced Medium
Becky & Eaimbry Eleonora for the Elementary
Grace & Eden for the Elementary Freestyle
Kelly & Ella for the Novice Open
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.
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!
Elli & Bea :-)
Charlotte & Kirsty :-)
Bob the Builder aka Linzi!
Trudy in action!
Fantastic Frank – we sometimes put another ‘f’ word in front of his name – depending on how reliable he is being :-)
Jack getting spruced up!
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….
An example of collection & extension in the same pic!
Sooooo clever :-)
Caluna & Hannah
Jack & Becky…
We like to give the horses some variety :-)

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 :-)
