Rearing to go!

Hey Everyone

It's been some time since I wrote my last blog - apologies for not writing sooner but things have been hectic on all fronts to say the least!

On the competition front I have done very little since Dublin in August, as I decided to invest time into my business by both selling some of the great horses we have at Karlswood and further adding to my own string of international horses in order to be well mounted for 2015.

It's taken some time and multiple trips to most countries in Europe in search of my next super stars! I was starting to lose hope after trying dozens of horses to no avail for around 3 months and then all of a sudden I found two special horses in one week!!

In fact, it was the week after my mum, Louise, suddenly passed away and it just seemed surreal that both came so close, as if she was sending them my way. I'm a great believer in the saying "what's meant for you won't pass you by" and I'm really excited and motivated to get to know my new mounts in Florida this winter.

Over the coming weeks I will be giving my website a major facelift, showing our new Karlswood colours and logo as well as a new page dedicated to my horses for 2015!!

Check back in soon!
