Just a typical day....

 I dont mean to babble but OMG soo excited..... My 18yr old daughter is in the Army, so i sort of inhereted her horse. She's had him for 6 yrs and we just couldnt sell him when she joined up(he's 16.2h w/b 12yrs old)  and they have done the local riding club stuff and so on.  She phones me up today and it goes something like.... "can i take Tiggy (Horse) jumping please" course you can love, when & where? "This Saturday at Royal Windsor show"  ok "good i'll be up in the morning with Srgt Whatshisface to pick Tiggy up and he can stay at Sandhurst for the week, I'll be jumping in the Army team 1'05 class on sat then"   Me looking out of kitchen window at this muddy beast whos lived out for the last couple of days says no worries i'll have the kettle on then..  

 

Send round Gok Wan and the 60 min makeover team asap!!! Not only have i been trying to find Tiggy under all that mud, i've had to get her jods washed, find her hat, borrow a pair of "long" leather boots, wash numnah & travel boots, find Tigs boots ooh and give the tack its annual clean too. 

 

All in a days work!!! I am so excited for her though cant wait till weekend now i'll be going to watch.

Oh wow!! What a fantastic thing for your daughter and Tiggy - I was reading a bit about it in the paper yesterday, but it's not being shown on tele until June sometime, for some reason.

Hope you all have a great day !!

 Thank you both, well he's hobbnobbing with the sandhurst lot now! She took him yesterday, he ran onto trailer with his ears pricked up "OOh where we going??" look on his face. Thay got there and she had a ride on him in the evening and everything went fine, she rang me up to say his all tucked up in bed.  Bet we wont go running on the trailer to come home once he realises he's in 5* accomadation!

 

Cant wait to go on Saturday, only draw back her class is at 7-30 in the morning!!! Early night Friday me thinks.

Haha !!! Sounds great, good luck to her !!! Great opportunity !!!

 

We're the same with our lot, it's been such a wet spring this year it's a case of scaping the mud off before we can get any riding done haha !!!

 What a brilliant day.  Tiggy went really well, he was fantastic. She got to parade in front of the Queen and Tiggy was on best behaviour too.  He looked fab all gleaming and plaited up.  Will try to get some pics of him on here but i am a bit usless at that. And to top it all the weather  was fab too.
