I Think I Lost A Week!

Where did last week go, I lost it somewhere!!!! I worked Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and then Thursday we went to one of my Birthday Presents from last year, Horse of the Year show at the NEC in Birmingham. 

The event began at 7.00am and we got there for 8.00am so we go to see all the events.  It was a wonderful day and I really, really enjoyed it.  Here are some pictures of the day.

The Start of the Day.

The Large Hacks being judged.

The First Show Jumping course being laid.

The Scurry Event, which was fast and furious and great fun.

All the teams waiting for their marks.

The Winner and the horses were called Piglet and Eeyore!

The Dressage Arena built.

The riders were amazing and we got to see Charlotte Dujardin compete on a new young horse called Imhotep.  The event was for young horses starting to compete.  They were all good but Charlotte won!

This was the Native Pony class, all different shapes, sizes and breeds.

They finally managed to get them all in order!!!!

The final event we saw was the Household Cavalry doing a musical ride and they all looked magnificent.

We left at 9.00pm and it was a great day and I am hoping to go next year.  

Friday I caught up on work and home jobs and the weekend just flashed by, I can’t honestly say what we did but it flew by!  Yesterday was work mode and today and tomorrow at 8.00am I have to be at the dentist which I am not looking forward to!!!  This Saturday will be the first in-house swimming championships at the Club since 2019 which usually starts at 5.00pm and finishes around 8.00pm and we do it all over again the following Saturday. 

Before we know it it will be November!!!  We are racing towards Christmas at a furious rate or so it seems to me!!!!  I hope you lovely lot had a great week last week and a good one this.  See you tomorrow.

Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xx

    The horses are so beautiful!! What fun to get to see them! However, I don’t know how anyone stays on with those saddles y’all use – I tried it once and a walk was all I was able to do as I felt like I was on the verge of toppling off the whole time. Western saddles certainly make me feel much more secure! Lovely birthday gift! Have fun with the swimming this weekend…I thought you were going to get out of that! Enjoy your week and I hope you get some stitching in!
