I had always used a supplement to support Ziggy’s digestion especially as he can get excited and nervous which results in loose droppings and an upset stomach. I decided to take Ziggy off all other supplements apart from Aloeride so I could monitor the results. In 6 weeks of using Aloeride, I’m thrilled to say that Ziggy’s digestion is working superbly with no signs of upset digestion or loose droppings. In addition his coat is gleaming and I have had so many people comment on how well he looks, he really is glowing

With two weeks off work over Christmas I had plenty of time for training including a British Eventing (BE) training clinic with Sharon Hunt where we practised bounces, skinnies and corners as well as concentrating on my position! I also attended some BSJ shows, we had some successful results including clears in the 1m & 1.05m classes and even had the opportunity to wear our very smart Aloeride Saddle pad too! January has been a really busy month for us with more training and competitions! For our first competition of 2016, I took advantage of the British Eventing Winter Series and attended the BE Jump Training (JT). This training competition provided me with invaluable advice both in the warm up and in a competition environment and gave me some excellent ideas to work on at home. I was really pleased with how well Ziggy jumped with just one pole across two rounds, above is our video of the British Eventing Jump Training competition. Furthermore I also competed at a couple of British Eventing Jump and Style (JAS) competitions which includes a round of show-jumps followed by eight cross country type fences which are timed. The competition is then marked on style (horse & rider), faults and time faults, although I had decided to give Ziggy a confident round and didn’t go for the time. I was thrilled with how well he jumped especially the cross country phase with only had one SJ pole and a few time faults.

I’m now feeling prepared for the start of the eventing season, which is only a few weeks away! With some further training planned in February, a dressage competition and working on Ziggy’s fitness it’s count down until Isleham Horse Trials!
