Show success

Our young (and adult) riders travelled all the way to Antequera this weekend to ride at a super showjumping competition. It was very popular with a huge amount of entries in each class and we finished with show success!

Everyone came away with happy memories, some superb riding results (rosettes) including Jazmin (aged 13) with Rosie, who took 2 seconds in both the 80 cm and 1 metre rounds.

Your smiles, enthusiasm, efforts, endless practicing and joy of riding shone through. It’s not about the results in the end it’s about the experience and the enjoyment. We are immensely proud of all our riders for giving it a go and having goals (and courage).



Endurance winners

Caroline and her daughter have been busy competing – and winning – at 60km. Congratulations to both. Jazmin is only 13 years old and taking the endurance world by storm at the moment. They ride Arezu and Misty, sponsored by Yeguada Sultan.


Endurance riding trial

Team Los Rubios (our young riders team) we treated to a real life experience of Endurance Riding on Sunday when Caroline took them through the what, why and how of this sport.

Caroline is a champion rider, competing around Andalucia in 60 and 80km races. She had a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with these talented young riders.

From what racing is, to how to train for it, equipment used, the process, vet checking, time requirements etc – they went through everything including a demonstration and practice with the all important heart monitor.

Then they were split into pairs, given a course and a time reference (maximum and minimum) and off they went to try a competition for themselves!

There was a disqualification (for being too fast!) but everyone had a lot of fun, picked up some new skills, some new confidence riding out on their own and some big smiles!
