A Busy Week At True Prospect Farm

Hello everyone!

This past week at True Prospect Farm has been an exciting one!

First of all, Jan Byyny was here to get ready for Millbrook Horse Trials with all of her horses. (I would like to steal all of them. So nice!)

She was jumping in the outdoor, and her horse got spooked by one of the workers. Jan’s horse slipped in the arena, and Jan really hurt her foot. She is seriously one tough person.

Congratulations California!

I have recovered from my disease and am back in full action at True Prospect Farm! This past week was the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships, and that brings back a lot of good memories and bad as well.

Mononucleosis

Well this week has been quite the blast, let me tell ya! The whole barn has moved on from the camp and has been getting ready and competing at the Maryland Horse Trials 1 and 2.

Jennie Explores A Career As Camp Counselor

Well this week began with a jump-start because the Phillip Dutton Eventing Academy was on. As soon as I got off my flight from teaching in California, Boyd and I raced back to the barn. I threw some riding clothes on and ventured out to our cross-country field to teach about cross-country position. This all went quite well, and I met my new friend Cherie who is also doing a blog about Big Phil’s camp. http://cheriegetsduttonized.blogspot.com/

A Brief Trip Home To California

Since I have been back from England, I've pushed things back into a high gear trying to move on and learn from the experience. I've been gaining a few clients and am enjoying keeping very busy.

A Learning Experience At Bramham

Hello Everyone,

I leave from England to come home today, and I have to say that I am a fair bit down and out. Cooper has been so amazing all weekend, and I rode a not very good line on the cross-country, so he had a glance-off at a skinny brush jump. He was really fantastic though, and I am so proud of him.

A Dressage Day To Make Everyone Proud

I was walking up to the dressage arena today and looking at all the tents and people around, and I had a bit of a think. I said to myself, "Wow. How many millions of hours have gone into getting to this point? How many great teachers and coaches have I had?" 

But most of all I thought, "I have an amazing horse who deserves to be here, and I hope that I can ride him the best I can to prove how special he is."

The Beginning Of Bramham

So I have arrived at Bramham, and it is seriously unreal—much like most of this trip has been! Sara and Becky arrived safely, and we are all doing well! Cooper had his first few rides and has gone great. I have seen a lot of the legends of our sport today and even had Mark Todd sitting in David's lorry while we all had a drink. I mean seriously, how cool is that? To be around the absolute legends of our sport...wow.

The Last Gallop Before Bramham

Hello everyone from Maizey Manor!
 
I had my final gallop yesterday, and I have to say that the gallop was even more unreal than the one I did last week. What a hill...I think Cooper was really happy when he was done with that. I took a ton of pics and hope that you can tell how big the hill was from them.
 
The Greens have been really awesome, and Jacky is a seriously good cook. I also have found a new found love of the game of cricket, and David has the biggest TV I have ever seen...

Leaving Aston

Well I am on to Maizey Manor (David Green's) and then to Bramham. Sandy and Mark's lorry is really amazing, and I am including pics of it! The past two days have been going really well, and I am excited to get to the event but will definitely miss Aston Farm.
