What Mary Has to Say – November 2023

Dear all, Bicton International, my local event (of which I am very proud!), was a fabulous way to end the 2023 season. Areas of the UK were under water – but luckily, except for the first trot-up day,  the rest of the week stayed relatively dry and the wonderfully prepared ground, despite being a bit […]

What Mary Has to Say – July 2023

What Mary Has to Say – July 2023 My ‘autumn’ (saw my first ripe blackberry today 🤦‍♀️) event season begins this Sunday at Moreton HTs. The horses had a well-deserved holiday during the few weeks in June while I was away. I’ve since picked up their work, increasing their fitness and went jumping at Bicton […]

What Mary Has to Say – May 2023

Dear all,   What a strange spring season it has been with so many cancelled events due to the wet conditions. Very heartbreaking for the organisers after all their huge amount of work, and obviously frustrating for us riders!   But I’ve managed to get to 6 out of the 9 events I entered…so not […]

What Mary Has to Say – July 2022

Dear all, Just a quick update on my healing! I’ve just been for my 5 week X-rays. My bones are all healing well and staying in line…BUT with my broken C3 – neck, I have to wear my collar (and not drive or ride) for 6 more weeks until follow up X-rays. 🙄🙄🙄. I’ve decided […]

What Mary Has to Say – June 2022

Dear all,   Firstly, thank you very much for all the kind messages from those of you who have heard about my fall. I am quite broken, but very lucky to be not in much pain, and for all my fractures to have stayed stable – so no operations so far! Dear Emily dropped everything and came down […]

What Mary Has to Say – May 2022

Hi everyone,   I hope you are all enjoying the great spring weather. Although the warmth has been lovely we could do with some proper steady heavy rain for a few days, as the ground is getting pretty firm.   It has been great to get out eventing, and my young horses are progressing smoothly…with […]

What Mary Has to Say – April 2022

Dear all,   Having been away in March it’s great to be back eventing again! I haven’t got off to the best of starts though – King Louis has been a bit lame (better now) so is missing the first couple of events, I was ill with Covid, and Bovington Horse Trials next weekend has been […]

What Mary Has to Say! – Sept 2019

The 2019 event season has come to an end for me and my horses. Tilly continued successfully through her autumn events jumping lovely double clears at her last 3 events. Although she qualified for the 5yr old National Champs, I decided that she had learnt plenty for a 5yr old this year, and I didn’t […]
