Bart Qualifies for Horse of the Year Show

18 Jul 2017

A Message From Vicky Smith

Vicky Smith | Mole Country Stores

Our sponsored rider updates us on her achievements.

I hope you have all had a great summer! I've been really busy over the last few months. Not only in the saddle but also at home. Myself and my partner Alan have bought a new home. We decided to start from scratch and develop our own equestrian property. It has been a steep learning curve as I have had to learn about different aspects of horse care. Luckily Heather and Amy at my local Darley Dale Mole Country Stores have been on hand to help. I am now well educated in managing paddocks, choosing matting for stables, automatic drinkers and types of haylage!! If you have any questions, definitely ask at your local store.

My horses have been on great form - Indian King starts his next campaign for the CCI 1* at Osberton, with some events in the run up as preparation. My young horse Just a Wish has been placed at five out seven of his events and is continuing to improve each time out.

I have two new recruits who have been doing well in the show ring. Bling Crosby, our show cob, has booked his place at the Royal International and continues to compete in Horse of the Year (HOYS) qualifiers. Bart, a coloured gelding owned by my good friend Gillian Hickford, exceeded our expectations by qualifying for HOYS at his first show! We were over the moon, as he was champion too. We will now concentrate on improving his condition on a strict TopSpec feed regime, while keeping his routine varied and fun.

I hope you make the most of the light nights and enjoy your horses before the autumn nights set in.

Until next time,
Vicky
