British Showjumping are currently looking for a new team manager. We will know next week of their choice. A big challenge for the new manager as GB has not qualified for the next Olympics… Reading the press during the last few months there is a constant cry about GB lack of horses. Small wonder when one by one they are all being sold abroad as there are huge prices commanded and an ever increasing countries involved in the sport at the top level with big purses. “We need more owners”… What will encourage people to retain their horses? It would be interesting to hear anyone’s opinions on this.
The horses are back in full work now Camilla has returned from her holiday in Tanzania… she has been packed straight off to Di Lampard’s after a relaxing Christmas. For more information on our mischievious yearlings, falling off our horses, our future riding superstar (get ’em early, picture on left), and our cat that thinks he is a dog, see blog 31.
