The sport of horse riding is an amazing one and it’s for all ages and abilities. More and more people are now taking on this sport and speaking about all the health benefits and how to get started.
A relationship with your horse is important because yours and your horses experience will be more relaxed and enjoyable when built on trust and a mutual connection. With a strong bond, there will be no fright involved, no dread or a lack of trust!
I don’t remember the last time I wrote a blog so there’s clearly a lot to cover! Writing this on New Year’s Eve it feels appropriate to summarise 2020 as we move on from what is probably the most strangest year any of us will probably ever experience again in our lives.. It’s not been my easiest year personally either, but so many lessons that will set me up for success in 2021. I experienced a relationship and break-up worthy of a blockbuster movie.. I found myself at risk of redundancy.. planned trips of a lifetime were cancelled and my house has been on and off the market, hosting more house viewings than I care to remember!

Meet our senior Trailblazer Rider Ambassador Winners - Hannah Marrs and her horse's Lucy and Louis
It all began last summer, Trailblazers Championships 2018. I had only been jumping Mr Pickles off the lead rein for a few months. I was 8 years old and Mr Pickles was my 11 hand pony that I had owned since I was 4 years old. He was my lead rein pony and my first jumping pony. The finals came and I was eliminated in both rounds of the 65cm 12 and under championship. But I had the most amazing time, made brilliant friends, and loved the experience. I made mummy promise that we could come back next year and I told myself I would win a rosette.
At the end of the summer 2018 we had Sali Mali. She is a 12.2 dark bay mare. She was much faster than Mr Pickles and jumped much higher. When I first had her I fell off alot, I sang nursery rhymes when we cantered and had to jump fences in trot. Over the winter we worked hard and we started to get better. I qualified Mr Pickles for the Trailblazers 65cm second round and Sali Mali for the 65cm and 75cm second round.
Our Cavaletti Collection Adjusta Pad is such a handy item to have. It can be a temporary saddle fit alteration to your horses ever changing shape and assist with the fit of your saddle while your horse is building muscle especially in younger horses.
Cavaletti Collection has teamed up with Trailblazers to offer 2 lucky winners (1 Junior and 1 Senior) the chance to become Show Jumping brand ambassadors for 12 months.
Sally and Russell's year end.
You may have noticed we have been quiet for a few months, this year has flew by. Behind the scenes we have been planning ahead into next year already and look forward to sharing our exciting plans with you all.
The team here at Cavaletti Collection is very small and personable. It consists of a small amount of equestrian minded bodies who understand the strains of working full time, raising families and finding time to spend with your 4 legged friends.
