Meet our new beautiful pony Manhattan’s Connie. She passed her vetting today with flying colours so we thought we would start how we mean to go on and popped her to Duckhurst. She showed us how brave and willing she was. Connie only went and jumped a super clear round and already collected her first rosette. We will soon be looking to find her forever home to be loved and spoilt, she’s one in a million 💪🏽🐴

Good night sleep needed tonight before another very busy day at Team Manhattan tomorrow. Often I have to take a minute to wonder how did I get so lucky to be this busy so soon, have the most amazing yard, horses and customers around me. This has always been my dream and I feel so lucky to be living it 💁🏼‍♀️❤️

Another busy day for Team Manhattan today. We said bye but see you soon to Flame who has had a great 3 weeks here. We’re really proud of his progress and looking forward to being a part of his future successes. We also welcomed the beautiful Indie who is staying with us for a while so we can gel her new owner Pescha and Indy together. We’re going to get them ready to win lots of shows and prizes throughout 2018! Let boot camp commence 💪🏽🐴

Few!! After what feels like a very long, hard week I’ve finally had a good day. The day started with the sun coming out and having water again at the yard (I could of cried when I saw water coming out the tap). All the horses got to go in the field which was a little hair raising at times but also a big relief for them (and us!!). To finish a successful day/ nearly getting back to normality we got the school harrow which made the snow disappear and we managed to work all 10 horses. I’m going to sleep well tonight 💪🏽

Fast fibre lunches to fill my little men up! Safe to say it went down a treat ❤️🥕⛄️

Today is the hardest day of them all! We’ve never been in a situation where we have had to unfreeze stable waters with a hammer or not being able to even wash water buckets out due to the ice in them. Plus, no water out the taps even after numerous hot kettles. So need must..... sorry mum 😬

A few pictures of our snow day at TME ⛄️ now all rugged up for -6 temperatures tonight. Stay warm everyone More pictures of today to come 🐴🥕

🥕Winner, Winner🥕 My horses just keep getting better and better. My ponies are stars 🌟 We popped down to duckhurst this afternoon after a busy morning teaching and my super stars didn’t let me down! We jumped the 1m05 and Newcombers on Snowy as duckhurst wasn’t sure they would be running the Fox. Snowy only went and WON the 1m05. Sox jumped her first ever 1m05 (her biggest class yet) without any warm up class and she jumped an amazing double clear and came SECOND!! Promise then cleared up and jumped a super round in the newcombers with just 1 down in the jump off and double clear in the Foxhunter! I love my ponies 🐴😍❤️🥕 #sponsoredby #swannequineosteopathy

6 years ago I bought this beautiful horse. Never did I realise he would be my one in a million. I’ve never met a horse that would try and trust as much as he does for me. There are not enough words to describe how amazing, lucky and how much I love him. Can’t believe that little horse is now jumping me round my 1m30 and we’re talking about 1m40. I’m sure we’ve both made my grandad proud. How lucky am I 😍❤️🐴

What a beautiful day to own horses! Finally, the weather was on our side. Here’s some pictures of Alfie (our permanent resident) strutting his stuff in the sun 🌞 Amanda Stevenson

**Show Success** Super ponies at Felbridge today even with unlucky 4 faults. Manhattan’s Lady (Sox) was a super star, just a pole in the Discovery. She’s definitely ready to start jumping her newcomers now. We didn’t managed to get any pictures of Copain Z (snowy) but he just had 1 down in the jump off of the newcomer. Star of the show as ever was our Eternal Promise who jumped double clear and came 6th in the Foxhunter. I have so much love for my amazing team of horses. 🐴🦄🥕❤️❤️ #ATeam #SwannEquineOsteopathy
