 We made the long journey to Allerton in Yorkshire for an OI run for Baz, a beautiful event but a very long way! He did a great test with one rather over enthusiastic canter transition, and jumped a beautiful steady double clear for 9th place.


Orange eventing are proud to introduce another new team member! Oli is a 9 year old Irish bred grey gelding who has come from Cumbria. We are very pleased to have him in our team and look forward to getting him out and about.

 Millstreet is a stunning event with permanent stabling, multiple arenas and a beautifully presented XC course.


Baz settled in well and we were thrilled with his test, which was a huge improvement from Barbury. He is still green at this level and made several mistakes including a break in both the half pass and counter canter. This kept him from scoring high marks but he produced some beautiful work and we are very excited for the test that he will be able to do next year.


The show jumping track was big, spooky and airy - not an easy test for Baz - but he jumped brilliantly, just touching one upright.


Cross country did not go entirely to plan with Baz just not feeling the love on the day! A disappointing end to a great event but on to the next

 Super excited to introduce new Team Orange member Junior aka OJ, a stunning 3 year old Zangersheide colt by a son of Balou du Rouet.

A graduate of the Brightwells Elite Auction, Junior will shortly be gelded (sorry Junior!) and start his training.

 Quiet few weeks at Team Orange HQ. Baz has been working well, preparing for his trip to Ireland next week for the CIC*** at Millstreet.


Orange is sound after bashing himself at Aston le Walls and is having some r and r.


The young horses, Heidi and Diego are both improving each day and looking like exciting prospects, although the ground has been too firm to really get them out and about too much.


Zippi and Stan have entries for Moreton Show for their annual showing outing. Who wants to go to Burghley anyway

Baz points his toes to score just off 70% at Gatcombe in the intermediate championships. So pleased with his progress. Didn't jump him as he is heading to Millstreet for the CIC***

Great weekend for Baz at Aston le walls, runner up in his second advanced, one mark off the winner. Thrilled with his test, one down show jumping around a tough track and a super speedy fluent round cross country. 

After his amazing dressage performance, leading a very competitive advanced section, poor Orange has banged a hind leg and was quite sore, explaining a less than Orange-like showjumping round, so no Burghley for him but he is enjoying some extra polos and tlc.
