Letters from Christie: Next Stop British Showjumping National Championships.

At the end of the month I was very proud to say I completed my level 2 saddle exam and working straight onto my level 3! The level 2 saddle is a pony saddle which I completed in 2020, but unfortunately due to COVID the exam was later than planned. I had to work hard remembering the process and points within making a saddle from scratch.

Letters from Christie: A Royal Salute

Since my last blog I have been my usual busy self, still trying to find the work, life and horse balance, which so far has been successful. April started with some downtime on Easter holiday away from work which I spent with my daughter, Chloe and plenty of horse activities. I then returned to work for the week, knuckling down with my apprenticeship. Ceremonial rehearsals do not take place whilst everyone is away on holiday, so this is a perfect opportunity to work on my apprenticeship.

At work we have had the green light for some form of ceremonial duties to go ahead for the year. We have begun training for Royal Windsor Horse show at which we perform The Musical Drive. I have been asked to ride Number One position for B sub section.
