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 :-)
Caluna & Ella having a canter with Ellie and Kelly :-)
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 :-)
Dolly (Jazz) with her gorgeous colt by Dante Weltino
Ruby’s (Don Schufro) colt by Furst Wilham
Jacob just LOVES his Auntie Kelly scratching him!
The yearlings coming for a nosey at who is in their field – both with white markings by Rousseau – bay by Florencio.
Eeeny meeeny miney mo – just cant decide which one I would like!
Very pretty 2 year old Hadora
2 year old Honey – out of Ella (Caeser) by FS Don’t Worry (her mane needs a little bit of attention!!!)
3 year old Gorgeous (left) by Florencio and 2 year old Hector (right) by Furst Kiss – as you can see Hector is rather large!
Two of the 3 year old mares both by Voice – looking like they’re ready for backing :-)
Just backed 3 year old Georgia by Painted Black who is now for sale!
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 :-)
We had a mixed show at Addington, the first disappointment being that Caluna developed an abscess in her foot so she could not go :-(
We took Nora to compete in the 5 year old classes on the Friday – she was a very good girl but unfortunately the judges in the first test did not appreciate her greatness :-) and she came 7th but then made up for it in the International class winning with 80% – 10% more than the previous judge had her on!
Becky then competed Jack in his first PSG on the Saturday morning, he had super trot work and the canter was good but with slightly wobbly changes to get them nearly 72%! unfortunately Michael Eilberg scored 1/2 a percent more to take 1st place and Becky came 2nd but a great result for his first time!
Jack’s preparation for his first PSG!
Conserving his energy :-)
The warm up!
Aaaww – All grown up!
Melissa and Diva are doing very well so far this year with a couple of wins at the weekend – picture below.
Kelly and the adorable Ella who was bred by Julie, out of Ballerina by Ceaser 171 is also having a successful start to her career, already qualifying for the Novice Summer Regionals and hoping to qualify Elementary as well (fingers xd!)
We wish all friends, clients and horses bought from us, the very best of luck at the Winter Championships this week. Let us know how you get on.
Becky and Jack will be competing on the Saturday and hope to see anyone who is there!
