Last weekend went well at Gatcombe Horse Trials with Harvey and Bree. I ran Harvey in the Open Intermediate and my new mare, Bree, in the Open Novice just as a nice easy run so that we can start getting to know each other.

I am excited to report that my horses will be moving to Charlotte Martin’s lovely yard near Hungerford, UK. I have really enjoyed the people and the atmosphere at Yew Tree Farm, where my horses have been previously, but my advanced horse is in need of a gallop track onsite to maintain his fitness

It’s noon on Sunday, the horses are off, and I have just finished making American pancakes for my poor deprived British friends. (Clearly I forgot to post this on Sunday as it is now Tuesday!) A life without pancakes . . . I can’t imagine it! Therefore I have recently started a tradition of inviting all of my friends to a pancake breakfast on Sunday mornings- well, until the season starts! Before the season does start rolling, I want to introduce you to my team: Watch It or "Harvey" Meet Watch It, aka “Harvey”. He is a 15-year-old, 16 hand Irish Thoroughbred that I purchased last spring from Simon Lawrance and Sam Brodie
Watch this space for the debut post of Sidelines’ newest blogger – international event rider Logan Rawlings! Logan grew up riding hunter/jumpers in the San Francisco Bay Area, but soon moved on the the sport of three day eventing and has never looked back. After riding with Phillip Dutton and Mara Dean in the U.S., Logan moved to the United Kingdom and spent two years working for renowned British eventer William Fox-Pitt. In November 2009 she took the next big step of opening her own yard and setting out her training shingle. Why did this American-born rider choose to settle in England? How deep is her string of horses, and which international competitions is she aiming for this season? Check back here soon for the answers to those questions and much, much more!
