I said all I wanted was a nice snap 📸✨
Remmi was just fabulous today!
Really relaxed, super chilled and he really let me ride him 🙌🏻
Our lack of test riding showed; my circles were a bit big and not really circles, broke in our med trots, broke in canter, we trotted too early basically we just gave away an easy couple of marks here and there which is pretty expensive with 3 judges!
Ended up on a score just shy of 64% so definitely not our best. Well, I’d say it definitely wasn’t ‘MY’ best, I let him down today by being a bit ring rusty as he was ON FIRE 🔥
Positives ~ We qualified, we did it and we got a pretty lovely pic! 💙💚

Jessie at area finals finishing top 10 today ⭐️ 🐴
The last two days has tested my organisational skills to the maximum having gone to a stay away show by myself with Dolly the dog and Desmond the most high maintenance horse known to man in tow ! Was worth the hassle when Des qualified for the second round of the area’s at Medium silver by finishing 3rd overall ! In true Tangi style nothing is ever complete without an issue. When getting ready for the mounted prize giving the tack locker key sheared off whilst in the lock locking all my tack in, meaning we missed the go round ! Everything happens for a reason and I believe this happened as I am meant to live past 25 ! #superman #areafestivals #medium

Attention to detail and know the rules! Things that are really important when you are competing! Don’t forget you and your horse will have a tack check before and after your test at your Festivals and Regionals! Also take time to have a good walk round your venue and familiarise yourself with the arena, warm up, stabling. Things like how long does it take to get to the warm up and then to the arena
are so crucial and often overlooked. Be prepared for all eventualities and HAVE FUN! I was supporting a rider at the Pet Plan Area Festival Allen’sHill Competition and Livery yesterday. Such a happy friendly venue! .

So today was Lily's turn at the area festivals at Novice. Anyone who knows Lily knows that she can be sassy, strong willed and opinionated... and today she had a very strong opinion (about the spooky photographer). Main thing I was proud of today was that I didn't freeze up when she was spooking, I kept riding (probably the best I have ever dealt with a difficult test, leading to a few 7's and an 8). Just goes to show it's not what goes wrong, it's how you react to it. **Full update after our second go tomorrow** @topoftheclops @geniusequestrian #dressagedivas #areafestivals #dressagecobs #youwinsomeyoulosesome #cobspfinstgram #bdnorthwestie

Have just been sent my PetPlan qualification letter...but unfortunately Smartie was diagnosed with #KissingSpines
this week 😭 highly unlikely we will be far enough along in the treatment/rehab process to even contemplate making the 1st round qualifier which is absolutely gutting but his recovery long-term is the priority and we don't want to rush him back and risk not getting him right! What a star this horse is though to have gone out and got scores like that this spring when his back was giving him so much trouble! #Superstar #Smartie #Horses #Equestrian #Dressage #PetPlan #AreaFestivals #BritishDressage #Qualifiers #Recovery #Rehab
