Aye reekin’

Well, what an interesting year 2009 turned out to be – who’d have thought I’d be living at the top of a hill spending the Winter Solstice fetlock deep in snow.  I have a very happy landy.  What a beautiful country this is!

Congratulations to all of you who broke new barriers, scooped prizes and achieved personal goals this year, my heart goes out to those of you who suffered pain or trauma or lost loved ones both 2 and 4 legged.  The universe has a strange way of unfolding at times but I do still try to see it all learning.

2010 is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting yet – watch this space!

I’d like to take a moment to thank those of you who supported me through a rather stressful summer – I couldn’t have done it without you!

Wishing you all a stressless festive season and that your lum may aye be reekin’ as the great man said.

NAE INTERNET

MOVING (a wee bit further) NORTH

What a rollercoaster of a summer – highs, lows and a lot of learning…

I will be moving north of Huntly in October and will no longer be offering rider classes at Crathes.

In the winter months, I am aiming to be mobile 4 days per week but will also be available at home Mondays and Wednesdays for those needing their horse seen at short notice. (5 mins from A96, 5 mins north of Huntly).

Watch this space – clinics and boot camps coming in 2010!

Thank you for your patience…

WELL DONE HELEN & NELSON & LORNA!
