Barbury and Tweseldown Report

A promising day for Team Keen at a very hot Barbury International Horse Trials☀ I was competing both of Margaret Cuffs horses, Barrison and Leaping Lord. Barrison scored a 26.8 on his first time out which is very promising. Unfortunately, he went onto tense up in the...

Ascot Under Wychwood Report

Team Keen had a good weekend all round at Ascot Under Wychwood. First up (video below) was 5YO Total Freedom, who did a nice test and jumped her socks off for a fabulous double clear. Willows Saviour owned by Margaret Cuff was back out for his second ever event (in...

Pontispool 2019

Team Keen had a good weekend overall at Pontispool 👍 Quintessential did a really lovely test in the Novice and probably one of her best to date. However, this didn't seem to get reflected in her mark but she still remained competitive. She was quite feisty in the...

Tweseldown Report

Our latest event was Tweseldown with two young homebreds. First up was 6YO Quintessential in the Novice. Her test was super and right up there in terms of scoring. In the showjumping we had an annoying pole but a good round. Then onto the cross country, where I felt...

Chatsworth International 2019

Total Belief had a great event at the Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials CCI-S4*. In the dressage she was so rideable and really on side throughout, I thought she could have scored in the late 20s but still got a very respectable 32.7, with a few...

Bicton Report

Brilliant weekend at Bicton Arena - one of the favourite Team Keen events. Quintessential (Chilli) did her second novice class and went really well. She had a couple of green moments in probably the most challenging test she has done so far, but scored a very...

Larkhill Event Report

A great day at Larkhill with lots going on in the Team Keen camp! I had an exciting event with three lovely Total Equestrian Construction horses. First up was 6YO Total Miracle in the BE100. He did a stunning test to score 25, sadly he struggled with the show-jumping...

Portman 2019

A good day at the office for Team Keen at Portman. Leaping Lord, owned by Margaret Cuff, was sadly a bit tense in the dressage, had an unlucky pole, but then finished up with a good steady clear cross country. Total Darkness carried on his run on good form. Scoring 27...

Gatcombe Event Report

Total Belief had a pretty good day at Gatcombe Horse Trials in her first AI of the 2019 season - although there are always things to work on! A nice test with a little bit of tension at the start causing one mistake but still scored a competitive 30.2. We then went...

Tweseldown 2019

A busy couple of days for Team Keen at Tweseldown in typical March eventing weather, quite windy! On Thursday we had Quintessential (Chilli) and Total Miracle (Leo) in the BE100. Leo felt great and put in a solid performance for 7th place in the 100. Chilli was also...

Calmsden and Hoys

We had an extremely soggy outing to Calmsden on Saturday with Margaret Cuff's two horses - Leaping Lord and Barrison and our apprentice Leah was also competing. Both my horses are still relatively new to the team and I was pleased with our day. Barrison did a 29...

Osberton Young Horse Championships

We headed up to Osberton with Total Equestrians Quintessential III in the 5 year old Championships and Midnight Chill, owned by Clare White, in the 6 year old Championships. Quintessential was first up and started as we meant to go on in the dressage. In the arena,...

South of England

We headed down to South of England for quite a wet weather weekend, but all the Team Keen horses went well. The two five year olds where up first in the BE100. Total Miracle went nicely in the dressage and show-jumping, but I decided not to run him cross country this...

SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials

A great week at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International with Total Equestrian Constructions Total Belief contesting the 8/9yr old CIC***. It was very exciting for us to get the first Total homebred to this feature age class and April tried her heart out throughout...

Great weekend at Gatcombe

A slightly quieter weekend for Team Keen at Gatcombe as we only had the two horses competing, compared to the nearly full house at Sapey! Our apprentice Leah Bentley was in the novice on Friday with her horse King. They put in a great performance, with a good test,...

All go at Sapey

Team Keen headed to Sapey with no less than 7 horses. A full on day, but it was well worth it. First up was Midnight Chill in the novice. He is becoming so consistent at this level and picked up another 6th place (3rd in a row!)! I am really pleased for his owner...

Fantastic Firle

We made the trip down to East Sussex with three young horses for Firle Horse Trials. It was well worth the trip! With all of them finishing in the top 10 and jumping fantastic double clears. Total Miracle really impressed me, as he is continually improving and always...

NAF International Hartpury Horse Trials

Hartpury was Team Keens mid season aim and it didn't disappoint with our two lovely home-bred horses. Total Belief (April) was contesting her first CIC***. In the dressage she was really super, staying relaxed and focused. As an 8 year old she is very new to this...

Aston Le Walls

Dauntsey

Mid week trip to Dauntsey with the two 5 year olds, Total Miracle (Leo) and Quintessential III (Chilli). Leo is still very new to the eventing game and taking in all the sights and sounds of eventing, but finished with a lovely clear cross country. Chilli is polar...

Upton House

It was Total Belief's turn at Upton on Wednesday. It was her first run back since doing so well in the CCI** at Renswoude and I was fully expecting her to be a bit of a handful from the break! But she totally surprised us all by being super chilled and calm, which was...

Tweseldown

I had a great two days of competition at Tweseldown and really enjoyed the event. The courses were very educational and had lots of variation. I felt like the event team had put a lot of thought into creating interesting courses for each level. The 90 and the 100...
