Mentone Combined Training


Didn’t place but didn’t come away empty handed from today winning a handy and tasty price in the raffle , being a bag of oaten chaff.


The showjump course was well built and well up to height. Even though it had rained most of last week, the ground held quite well being a sandy  loamy sort of soil. Shame about the showjump warm up being way too small for a horse Occy’s size. It was jump, slow, turn, start again, jump, slow etc. So he didn’t really find his stride until halfway around the course. 2 rails but there weren’t many clear. And after Occy treating the first part of the dressage like the start of a Crosscountry it didn’t really matter too much. At least we’re back out there.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including and To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try
