The 2018 Eventing season is finally underway, starting at Oasby Horse Trials this week. And we're pleased to report that both Primitive Dazzle II and Fathers Compromise performed brilliantly considering we hadn't had a chance to go XC schooling before hand due to the unexpected snow. 

Primitive Dazzle did a lovely test to score 29 in the dressage. He had an unlucky pole in the SJ, and was sensational across the country to finish in 9th place overall. He is also for sale on behalf of his owner Rachel Barringer.

Fathers Compromise was thrown in at the deep end missing her scheduled BE90 run at Epworth after it was cancelled. So for her first event completed a BE100 with a 31 dressage, one pole show jumping and a lovely steady clear XC despite being incredibly green. We are delighted for her owner Michelle Pritchard, who has a very nice young horse for the future.


We are very excited to welcome LeMieux / HorseHealth on board as one of our sponsors for 2018.

I have known Robert LeMieux for a very long time, so it will be great to work with him, his family and team throughout the year.

For more details about LeMieux products, please visit the Sponsors page for direct links to the website. The products and range however need no introduction. LeMieux is already regarded as the 'Waitrose' or 'designer label' of the equestrian market. If you are unfamiliar with the products though, please do browse the range.

We have some very spoilt horses!!



I am incredibly excited to announce that we have picked up a very important sponsorship for the 2018 season from Venn Healthcare.

Venn Healthcare is a trusted supplier of the very latest non-invasive systems to the medical, cosmetic, aesthetic and most importantly to us, veterinary markets. 

We are extremely grateful of the support from Venn's CEO Chris Schiel, who has over 20 years experience in privately held businesses delivering over £200m of manufactured products using leading-edge technology. And Head Of Operations New Zealander Hugh Fullerton-Smith, who takes the lead on veterinary technology support.   

Venn veterinary products provide specialist needs in areas such as shockwave and laser therapy, using the latest in advanced technology.

We are very lucky to be sponsored by Venn Healthcare, and there products will be vital to ensuring the horses are maintained and managed correctly and can perform to the best of their ability. Eventing is a tough sport and injuries are not a case of 'if' but 'when'. With Venn's support the management of horses will be made far easier.

I’m pleased to say that I’m now allowed to announce the big secret that iv been keeping under wraps since December! Iv been selected to take part in the Best Western Hotels & Macmillan Ride Of Their Lives at York Racecourse on Saturday 16th June 2018.
I am so excited about this once in a lifetime experience. More importantly it is a great opportunity to raise money for Macmillan who provide endless support to families and patients who’s lives are being affected by cancer. More and more people are diagnosed every year and awareness and support needs raising as much as possible.
I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you all, which I will also do through my Horse & Hound blog. Please visit my JustGiving link and donate, any contribution no matter how small can help to change lives. I have to lose nearly 6 stone for this race, which after having hormone treatment for cancer myself causing me to gain in weight is not an easy task. I have already lost 2 stone since December and I will achieve this and ride to the finish line for this great cause.…/matthew-wright-eventer
