Steph gears up for the Nationals

It has been a quieter month for Steph, with the kids on school holidays and Mr P on countdown for the Nationals. "I became somewhat of a local celebrity during the Olympics with lots of interviews on Radio Derby to talk about dressage and Richard Davison, and the whole team. The fantastic result has really bought dressage to the masses which is amazing!"

"We are really on the build up to the Nationals now," she tells us. "We have devised a new floorplan for our dressage to music and I can reveal that we are doing it to a medley of Fatboy Slim music! It will be fun and hopefully entertaining for everyone to watch!"

"Ancy went to her new home yesterday - a lovely family in Southampton, it sounds like she has settled in well and she will be loved to death! Freddie the youngster is coming on well - we got caught in a herd of cows coming through the village and lived to tell the tale! We haven't done much with Clyde this month as all our attention has been on Rimmer but we only need one more point at Advanced Medium and I plan to do some PSG Music this winter."

"We are off to do a dressage to music demo at Askham Bryan College in York next weekend where we will be making our debut performance with the new music! Do come along and see us on the evening - it promises to be lots of fun! In other news, we have 5 gorgeous miniature schnauzer puppies at the moment so if anyone is looking to give one a loving home then let us know!"

We would like to wish Steph and Mr P the best of luck at the Nationals!
