Latest News: Sunday-10th May: 4.30pm - the preliminary vetting for Classes 1, 2 and 3 has now been completed - and the good news is that ALL the horses presented for vetting have passed. Following yesterday's withdrawals by Helen McFarland, Carolyn Edwards and Jane Smith, there have been no further withdrawals so 11 will start in the prestigious Golden Horseshoe class, 9 in the Exmoor Stag and 45 in the Exmoor Experience.

Thanks, 12th. at 11.20am and as its less than an hour old, so thats fine for me.

waiting for news on Mydass & Pauline, seem to be taking there time arriving..and it sounds as if Sky & Donna Taylor retired on course. Pam & Orial held up a little with a tack problem. Be interesting to see who's coming in now.

woohoo - Gail and Gilfae have finished the 2day 160km on Silver - not bad for an oldie eh?
And Vicky and Zamin a silver in the 80km Exmoor Exp

Congrats to all - and well done Spangle - am I right in thinking you had something to prove after a near miss last year? And will 'Spangle' the horse be aimed at endurance once ridden?

Never anything to prove Mrs Vlacq- last years near miss was all just preparation!! What a fantastic ride- we rode pretty much the whole way with Gail and Gilfae- so so nice to complete the horseshoe with another horse sired by Shah Shadow- the same as my young Spangle!
Spangle will be aimed at endurance as well Mrs V- she has very big boots to fill but I am sure she will manage just grand! She gave Marco a telling off when he returned today!

The ride was out of this world- Marco had a ball and really really enjoyed himself- he doesn'tknow he isn;t an arab!

How lucky were we with the weather??, OK the wind was cold but bright and sunny so perfect for the horses.
I was crewing Harry and Sealy who did the Exmoor exp and LOVED it (and got gold, there was a few errors on the web site results !). I was waiting to crew at the finish and can tell you it was a joy to see so many beautiful Arabs, ears foward tails up still full of going after so many miles, cantering over the line... LOVELY,LOVELY horses we are all so lucky to have them in our lives. Well done everyone.
Well done Lorna too, we were the ones sitting by you in the Prize giving, have you found a shelf big enough yet???
PS took my youngster Bryn round Pen Ddol y Gader pleasure ride yesterday while Harry and Sealy did the 40km. Rode the last 10km with First Lady on the fabulous Jaz( doing the 40). It was a great ride although very wet and there was a lot trotting and cantering through hock deep water Debbie and I had a laugh repeatedly reminding each other that Arabs 'won't go through water' !
Cheers,
Lisa

Lisa Thats a lovely description of Golden Horseshoe and a huge Well Done to Sealy and Harry on their fab Gold award you must be very proud of them both
Lol re arabs and water on Sunday
it was a pleasure to have you and Bryn's company and catch up on old times
young Jaz seemed to enjoy himself a little too much ( and took a dislike to the Vet in the crinkly green outfit !!!)
but yes they were both brilliant and it was lovely being 12 again !!!!
