Bonnie and Fin C WE wowed the GB Pony Selectors at the British Dressage Pony Viewing Day at the end of September to gain a place on the Pony Prime Squad - hooray!
Amazing results for Bonnie Bourne and Twyford Salamander at their international debut. An amazing 5th place in the Pony Team Test, another 5th in the Pony Individual Test and 6th in the Pony Kur.
The white saddlecloth (which I was saving for a special embroidery from the Winter Nationals) was finally embroidered with Bonnies first Union Flag. Lets hope it is the first of many .....
Twyford Salamander and 14 year old Bonnie Bourne achieved a fab 3rd place at the British Dressage Winter Champs in the Medium Silver section of the Pet Plan Annual Final. So proud..... just cant wait to get an embroidery on that lovely white saddlecloth........
FEI Test Riding in early February went reasonably well with a score of 64+% but no mistakes for dear old Mr So, being placed middle of the pack of 22.
Dear Mr So sporting his new rug with a large embroidery comprising wording and golden salamanders. A slight improvement made on his scores from the previous week so onwards and upwards.
Well, unfortunately things didnt all go to plan! Next weekend we need less time spent warming up, less nerves and hopefully no more very costly rider errors. On the bright side, our trot up was very good and we had a fantastic time meeting up with all the other British Squad pony riders. Mr So will be strutting his stuff at Addington this coming weekend and hopefully things will be better. Good luck Bonnie and Solo.

Our sponsored rider will be off this Friday to the Pony FEI Test Riding so our next post will let you know how she gets on - wish us luck!
