Here’s a tiny bit of one of my rounds from the weekend ! I mean we have heaps to work on but this is a huge improvement on any of our previous attempts ❤️ • Those who saw my recent Friday fail will know what happens one of the last times we attempted a double 😂😂😂 • Still buzzing! My Teddy Bear rocks • Thank you @kelly.finch2 for filming ❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle

Transformation Tuesday! • There are between 2 and 3 years between the top and bottom photos! • This transformation is still a work in progress because I need heaps more work but ❤️❤️❤️ • What a difference from the horse who would run backwards in fear if he spotted a pole or jump and once I convinced him to go over something made the weirdest shapes and knocked everything he jumped down • Here’s to getting out to some more jumping ❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle

BEAMING!! • No other word can accurately describe how I feel! First ever arena eventing and Ted was Amazing! • After barely sleeping last night with nerves and then the rain this morning it’s safe to say I was feeling pretty shaky by the time we arrived at coombelands! A quick course walk of the 70 made me feel Even more wobbly as the jumps looked mahoosive to me especially considering this was teds .. 5th or 6th course ever 🙈 • First up the 70! Now it wasn’t the best I’ve ever ridden but it was the best I’ve ridden on a jump course with ted! It was sticky at times when ted decided to jump them huge 🙈 and I struggled in parts with a rhythm so we had three down but he absolutely flew ! I was beaming! He didn’t look at a single thing he was just so bold! • 75cms! Walking this I was thinking I had possibly lost the plot but oh my days!! I rode this one better than the last and let him go more forwards ( I was slightly less scared 😂) of course it wasn’t perfect and we had a couple of dodgy lines! But my goodness when it felt good it felt like we had wings ! After each fence it felt like Ted was asking “which one next Mum”! I couldn’t have been any prouder when I finished ! Who would have thought this was the horse that used to run backwards at the site of a pole 😂 • I am so so proud of my Ted Bear and me ❤️ • Bonus of the day was being with our besties soph and rem @riding_remington who did amazing and getting to watch @diary_of_a_dun and the absolutely gorgeous Barney! ❤️❤️ • Pro photos and more videos to come 😍 • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
So I’m feeling incredibly excited and equally absolutely terrified about Arena Eventing tomorrow! • My fear is made up of a few things.. falling off obviously 🙄 but also teds not the neatest! So I have a massive fear of a horse fall! I’m absolutely sure I won’t sleep tonight for worry! • This will be our 5th or 6th round of jumps ever 🙈 so he’s still learning about where to put his legs and I’m still learning how to ride him on a course it’s still all very hit and miss! My biggest aim is to finish my round having enjoyed some of it 😊 • Very excited about it being an outing with our favourites •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
Nothing quite beats starting the day at 6am by watching the sun rise through a pair of ears ... even if they are very dirty ears 🙈🙈 • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
Today’s Wednesday Wisdom = Listen to your horse! • Today marks one year since we started on our Ulcer Journey as it’s exactly a year since Teds diagnosis! ( photo taken on the first of his hospital stays ) • Now teds always been a bit of a mare in a Geldings body so stroppy behaviour is quite common however the weeks leading up to his diagnosis he couldn’t have been trying any harder to tell me something was wrong but it certainly took me a little while to get the hint ! Thankfully I listened in plenty of time! Remember you know your horse best ❤️ • I’m very proud of how well we have done post ulcers 😀 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
On Monday we schooled whilst watching the fireworks over the London Skyline ! All the pretty colours and none of the noise obviously my phone camera can’t pick up or do any justice to the view... so enjoy Teds ears 😂 ! • On a clear night we have a absolutely perfect view of London which can feel quite strange when the yards in pretty remote countryside 😊 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle

Now I know I’m officially really late to the riding tights party... but totally I firmly jumped on the bandwagon! 😊 • I actually couldn’t contain my excitement when a package from @boudicaequestrian arrived in the post! • I obviously popped my new outfit straight on for testing and wow I am a convert! My new outfit consisted of @chillouthorsewear leggings and a base layer and I honestly felt so comfortable ! Perfect for night like tonight when it’s not hot and it’s not cold but I still worked up a sweat schooling Ted Bear ! • So I’m now a full convert to riding tights and I’m already eyeing up my next purchase ❤️❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
I’m both ridiculously excited and absolutely terrified about our first ever Arena Eventing on Sunday! This will mark our 5th attempt ever at jumping at a competition 🙈 needless to say I shall stock up on the Rescue remedy this week 😂. Jumping nerves seem to get worse and worse but nothing compares to the buzz feeling once it’s over ! • • Can’t wait for an outing with @riding_remington and @diary_of_a_dun ❤️❤️ • • This snap was taken during our clear round last weekend ❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
Dressage today ! Our first time out since the beginning of September and our second ever Novice ! • Ted was polite and accurate today and he was forwards and listening but I just couldn’t get him to relax into a contact ! He found the warm up quite tense as it’s fairly small and we had about 6 horses in it warming up! He never misbehaves but he sort of shrinks into himself when others get too close this really didn’t help me trying to get him loose and through ! • We got 63.5% in our Prelim and 3rd and then 62.7% in our Novice and 4th ! I was really pleased with how accurate we were but we definitely lacked a bit of relaxation some lovely moments and I was really happy with the balance we kept in our counter canter 😃 • First two pet plans scores done ✅ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle

What a fabulous boy Ted Bear was tonight ! It’s back to that time of year where I rely on my portable floodlights and the Husband or a friend to ride at night due to my yard being pretty remote! • - Ted wasn’t at all phased by the darkness, rain or nasty shadows and schooled beautifully ! We even found a buddy to ride with which made it much less scary ❤️ • How many days till the clocks change back again 🙈 • • •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #tankmoreboy #horse #irishsportshorse #irishhorse #skewbald #instahorse #horseofinsta #horselife #equestrianstyle #equestrianlife #dressage #dressagehorse #training #journey #love #equestrian #horserider #patchypony #britishdressage #affiliated #equestrianstyle
