“Well what a busy month; I had thought as summer came to a close and with the clocks changing that we would begin to wind down, but it’s been non-stop. The Home International in October seems a distant memory, but one that I will always look back on with a smile. Lloyd has enjoyed an easy couple of weeks just hacking and having fun. We are now fully qualified to ride at the BD Regionals at Hartpury in the Novice Open, which is something to look forward to. April and Robin have been busy with the inter-schools Eventer’s challenge at Hartpury, coming 3rd individually and qualifying for the National championships. She also won a local ODE on a dressage score of just 17. Team Joynson had a great weekend at the Riding Club Area Dressage, where Aprils’ junior team came 1st, qualifying them for the Riding Club national championships at Hartpury, and April coming 2nd individually. Then Lloyd and myself did great for the seniors, with our team coming 2nd, also qualifying us for the RC National Championships next April, and my lovely Lloydy getting an individual 4th (we would have done better if Lloyd hadn’t had a comedy moment, by leaping out of the arena at ‘C’!). So next years’ diary is already filling up fast with some exciting events. April had her first BYRDS camp at Hartpury at the end of October and enjoyed the extra training and getting to meet Charlotte Dujardin. We hope to get her and Robin out doing their first affiliated competitions, before trying-out for the BD BYRDS inter-county team event. We are both over the moon at the successes of 2014 and are very excited to see what 2015 will bring.” – Karen Joynson
