Training with Peter Storr at the Williams

On Tues 2nd of July we travelled(all family and Julie Blanchard) to Claire and Paul Williams  in Chesterfield for a pre Europeans training session with Peter Storr our team trainer.

What a great night as the hospitality, company, weather  and food was all fantastic.Rembrandt DDH had a nice break in the stables while Erin Williams rode Dynasty and then I had my lesson after. We worked on Rembrandt ddh not taking over and letting me do my  job and it all went well, making me feel that everything Julie and I have been working on since my last squad training has paid off. Remy behaved beautifully as always and worked  very hard.  After Erins lesson on Danny Boy B we all sat and chatted about our preparations for Poland, there seems an awful lot to organise. Thank goodness for mums and dads!!

First competitive outing

“Today was a big day as it was Rembrandt’s first outing since we bought him! We were at Vale View Equestrian Centre and we competed British Dressage in the Elementary 53 and the Medium 63 tests.  Both tests went very well and Rembrandt behaved beautifully!  We went HC so our scores will not be published this time.  In the elementary we gained 72.65% I was absolutely thrilled with this result and happy to have got our first test done.  In the medium we were outside in gale force winds and he was more fiery!  We did a lovely test and gained 73.10%!!! I enjoyed every minute of today and I think Rembrandt did too!

We have some photos and Helen also has some fab ones too so we will get them online soon!”
