Steph Croxford restores her confidence

We caught up with Steph Croxford to hear about her travels since "disastrous" Deauville, and how she has bounced back in October!

"After our disastrous trip to Deauville we took Mr Hyde to Vale View where he scored a 69.6% in the Grand Prix and restored our confidence. It was then full steam to the Nationals! He settled in and was quite happy, despite us arriving on the Friday evening and not being able to get into any of the arenas - so our warm up was a hack round the estate in the dusk!"

Mary King and Mark Todd go full circle!

We caught up with Mary King to find out how the end of the eventing season has been going for her and Emily...

"I did my last event of the season at Bicton with the young horses, King Bill, King Robert II and Kings Ginger and they were all very good. It was their first Novice classes and all did good dressage scores, show jumped well and went clear cross country. I was really chuffed with their attitude and they were confident and happy at this level. Now they have finished and will have a holiday until they come in for next season in January."

Victoria Bax gets to Gatcombe!

Well it's been a month of highs, and, shall we say, "challenges" for our resilient Victoria Bax! Read all about her adventures at Gatcombe - which started even before she set off!

"The first day of my month started off very nicely but about 6pm that night it all went horribly wrong when we broke down in the lorry 10 miles from home with two youngsters onboard. After being recovered, front lifted and towed home with the horses still on board, we finally arrived home about 9.30pm from their first Horse Trials at Brightling Park with my two youngsters, Alberta's Rose (Tilly) and Alberta's Elegance (Milli) onboard which were bought unbacked at Ascot last June."
