There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in any professional event yard. I hope to give you a flavour of the variety and type of activity that goes on at Little Charingworth Stud to give you an insight in to all that is involved in producing event horses to compete at the top level. You will see from the following calendar that there is never a dull moment. In my blog I hope to provide you with regular updates on the goings on at home and at competitions, and to give you an insight in to the thought and planning that goes in to helping me produce my best at competitions

The following diary entries give you a flavour of the variety of activities that are going on at home. On top of what you see listed below, I try to make sure I’m at home enough of each day to ensure I ride most of my horses. I ride between 6 and 8 horses and teach the working pupils on the yard. I also try and fit in some fitness sessions for myself particularly out of season or at the beginning of the season when I’m trying to build up my base fitness and core stability:
