Baby Number Two!

Due to work commitments the horses have had to take a back seat in terms of competing this month, although I have been training hard ready for our outing  to get them all qualified for the winter regionals. With over 25 snags and handovers to do for Cyden Homes it could be said that I […]

Horses Will Be Horses…

The month got off to a disappointing start when I had to withdraw Bodyguard from the Nationals. Although all our preparation  had been going really well, the Thursday before we were due to compete I took Bodyguard out hacking for a good few miles of hill work, mixed with some canter work which he totally […]

Rocket and Amber Join the Team

It has been a quieter month for me competing; but at home I have been preparing for the National Championships with Bodyguard, getting Felix back up to full fitness and getting my homebred babies ready for their first outings next month. I have also been lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to compete three […]

Introducing Lara Edwards Dressage

This month there has been a few changes that have seen us rebrand ‘Cyden Dressage’ to now become ‘Lara Edwards Dressage’. This decision was made to reflect my personality and showcase the diverse direction the business has now started to progress towards in respect of training and breeding. We lunged him on the first day […]

An Emotional Roller Coaster

It has been an enjoyable month of training, competing and socialising! It started off with a night away and a trip to The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show to watch the dressage classes on the Thursday with my great friends, Vicky and Kate.  We very much enjoyed watching and not riding, followed by a lovely […]

On Winning Form

It has been another busy month that, at times, has been eventful – life is never dull with horses! In between lots of training and competing, I have also been working hard with lots of snagging and handovers. Firstly we went to Addington Premier League show with both Bodyguard and Felix, who were both superstars. […]

Early Starts and Late Finishes

My full-time job seems to be getting busier and busier month by month so at the moment I am struggling to get out competing as much as I would like. Earlier starts and later finishes seem to be happening on a more regular basis now! At the end of last month I helped out at […]

Difficult Decisions

So, this month I had my first GB call up since the birth of Annabelle for the International CDI at Keysoe with Bodyguard. Although I was over the moon with him and his way of going on the first day, on the second day his foot balance that we have been working on; to mend […]

Time for Bodyguard and the Babies

So, after a very successful regionals Felix has had a quiet few weeks so I could concentrate on Bodyguard for his first Premier League of the year and his call up for GB at Keysoe CDI. Bodyguard was brilliant at Mysercough Premier League; I am very excited to say I have joined FMBs Activo-Med rug […]

Spare Time – What’s That?

Now we are in 2017, I am officially back to my full-time job as quality manager for Cyden Homes, so with Annabelle in tow we have had a busy month snagging houses and moving our new purchasers into their lovely Cyden Homes. I think it is fair to say my life is back to 100 […]
