My first official Badminton Blog post

Really excited to share with you my first official 2015 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials post. This post is an interview with me and covers a number of topics about my Badminton preparation with my wonderful NZ thoroughbred Kaapachino.

Keep tuned as there will be more Badminton posts from me each week  as we count down to the start.

Delighted and excited to be accepted into Badminton

I have been accepted on my great NZ thoroughbred Kaapachino. We have come such a long way together, an epic journey. When I was 21 we moved to the other side of the world together to set out on this journey to Badminton, and have shared tough times, as well as the most incredible good times.

I can’t wait to do our first four Star as a partnership. I couldn’t think of another horse I’d prefer to do it on…the countdown has really begun now.

“ You can take the NZ thoroughbred out of NZ, but you can’t take NZ out of the horse.” #‎cmonkaapy‬!

Everything’s on track for Badminton

As we begin the final phase of our 4Star, Badminton debut, it’s great to have Kaapachino feeling very fresh and well.  This weekend it will be good for him to have his first run of the season to bring him into competition mode. We are both ready for our 2015 season to get underway. My own fitness and preparation for Badminton is right on track. Throughout the winter it’s been huge asset to be working out at Oaksey House  (the Injured Jockey Centre at Lambourn).

This week, the rest of the team: Amsterdam, Cleveland, Talking Point, Apart VD Hoefslag Z and Elmo,  also begin their 2015 season. They are all feeling fresh and fit, and keen to get underway.
