The 2012 season is about to start for busy Mary King

We can hardly keep up with Mary King this month - she has certainly been here, there and everywhere in preparation for the coming season! "The horses have all started doing a bit more work," she tells us. "We took the big horses to their first dressage lesson of the year, with my trainer Ferdi Eilberg, and they all went very well. It was also the first time out with new horse Chilli Morning and Ferdi was very impressed with him, fingers crossed all goes to plan and we will take him to Badminton!"

Mary tells us why she won't be changing anything this Olympic year...

We can't help but get a teeny bit excited everytime we speak to event rider and Olympic hopeful Mary King at the moment! This year has the potential to be very, very amazing indeed! "The horses all came back in to work at the beginning of January and have done their initial fittening road work," Mary says. "The young ones have started a little bit of schooling and jumping at home and we are off to their first indoor show jumping competition this weekend. These first few weeks of the year are spent with Jodie and Emma (Mary's grooms) transforming the horses from hairy mammouths into sleek event horses, so there has been lots of clipping and tidying going on!"

Steph prepares for the regionals

We are very pleased to hear from Steph Croxford that Mr P is doing very well and feeling on form! "He is heading in the right direction," she tells us. "He has actually been quite naughty recently which is always a good sign! He is also feeling very important again as Horse & Hound are running a piece on him in a forthcoming issue! I have been aiming for Myerscough Premier League but I am not sure he will be totally ready and I don't see the point in rushing him, so we will see!"

Happy New Year from Steph Croxford

As we caught up with Steph she was fending off the storms with trees down in her neighbour’s fields, the roof of the children's play house in tatters and gates hanging off in between fields, however in her usual positive attitude she was happy because the roofs of the field shelters were still in tact!
