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 level and I couldn’t have asked for more…

Wilton

Wilton is always a great event and this year was no different in the brilliant sunshine. We had four Team Keen horses attending on Saturday, including our working pupil Leah Bentley. Total Miracle was having his first run in a BE100. He is a very big, growing five year old, with lovely long legs and…

Aston Le Walls

We headed to Aston with Total Darkness on Friday for the Novice class. He did a really super test to lead the section by four marks (Total Darkness dressage), had an annoying show-jumping round for two down, but then a great clear cross country to finish 5th. Big day on Saturday, as we stepped Total…

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 opposite and very confident for a young…

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 very…

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 feeling like miniature versions of the…

Strzegom Nations Cup

If you follow #teamkeen at all on social media you’ll know that we were all unbelievably excited to be selected to represent Team GB in Strzegom for the Nations Cup with Alice Dunsdon, Wills Oakden and James Somerville. Last week the team, myself and Derby embarked on the long trip to Poland with a quick…

Farley Horse Trials

A relatively relaxed weekend for Team Keen at Farley with a horse running on each day for me and our working pupil Maddie was also competing. We took Quintessential on Saturday and she had another good run. A nice, consistent test for a score of 30. One unlucky pole rolled when she lost balance going…
