New season at GHE

Snow, snow, snow

Well the snow has arrived for 2012 so what a perfect opportunity for Ginny to sit down and do all relevant paper work, and website updates. Not to mention the fact entries have opened already, which is quite a scary thought. Ginny’s first event of the season will be Aston le walls with 6 'ready and raring horses!' 

After regular show jumping outings over the last few months, plenty of hacking and schoooling the horses are all feeling very well and want to get going. Ginny hasn’t yet had a chance for any cross country schooling and all concerned are fit and eager to get back onto the courses – including Ginny. 

Ginny’s plans are almost complete for each horse, Divilabit had a break after Blenheim and has come back in feeling very well, Ginny plans for the season to consolidate his three star runs with some top ten placings, Following much dressage training Ginny would like to improve his scores dramatically. Towards the end of 2012 season following good runs Ginny has her fingers crossed to make the upgrade to do his first four star but there is a long way to go between now and then and Ginny has to keep reminding herself that he is still only ten years old. 

Gamblers Image finished well from Blenheim and he too went out for a holiday His owner, Iona, is hoping to have more time this season with less work at university and hopes to event  him herself, so his plans for the season are uncertain. 

Creeslough, following his injury at Barbury Castle, has fully recovered and has been on continuous winning form in BSJA classes qualifying for a few second rounds. Stronger than ever and looking amazing, Ginny makes his return to the event circuit at Aston le Walls with a few Novice runs before upgrading him to Intermediate and aim for a two star later in the season. 

Ginny’s partnership with Motown Belle has grown and grown following many successes in BSJA and Dressage classes. She has qualified for second rounds in the Discovery and is set to come out at Novice for the beginning of the event season. Another one to upgrade to Intermediate later in the season, Ginny’s ultimate aim will be a two star by the end of the season. 

Argentinus has also had a holiday after his impressive record of double clears last season including a great result at Hartpury CCI* so a well deserved break. 

Angelus is now for sale, and looking for a riding club, lower level eventing home or ideally dressage which he has had many placings at during this winter.

A few new arrivals to Ginny Howe Eventing one of which being Qwazy Jinx, a chestnut roan mare bought to produce further and then sell, she is going to be evented following a successful career show jumping. She has also taken to hunting and bloodhounding which Ginny and her have had a lot of fun at this winter. She is on the market but until sold will continue eventing, show jumping and dressage.

Sannan Valley Justice is currently at her owner’s yard. She is a lovely, enthusiastic mare who Ginny cannot wait to compete. She is bold and brave and moves beautifully. Ginny had a fantastic show jumping lesson with Corrine Braken and really showed her talent.

Penskyber Alfs Button is also back with his owner, Karen, having a mini break from his hunting and schooling work but Ginny looks forward to his return soon to continue his training for Burghley Young Event Horse and five year old classes

Hamilton has had a little time off and Ginny has seen him come back much bigger and stronger – and, of course, full of character. Ginny will be taking him to five year old classes this season, and will continue competing at British Dressage and BSJA.
