Sharjah - A Great Venue

  • Part of the Emirate of Sharjah

Hey everyone,

This weekend the Arab League moved to the indoor venue at Sharjah equestrian centre, situated just 30 minutes outside Dubai. It is a beautiful set up with two large indoor arenas and spacious airy stables.

Both Dubai and Abu Dhabi carried top prize money but as Sharjah was a two star the money on offer was less. I aimed my horses at the two feature classes and thankfully was placed in both. Arabella jumped super and showed she has matured a lot and placed 5th in the Grand Prix qualifier. Joey (Larkhill Cruiser) was fantastic again and finished 3rd in the Grand Prix.

Im busy teaching again this week week which is enjoyable and the horses have a deserved 10 day break ahead of the final leg of the tour at Al Ain.

Check back next week for more news.

Best wishes,
