nice view

Summer is definitely here, with some glorious hot sunny days and of course some not so good days, the views becoming greener and more colourful by the day, lighter evenings and the wonderful return of the Swallows for the summer months. 
There has been lots happening here at Fitzworthy, with lots more exciting times ahead.

Indoor school build

The indoor school work is now nearly completed. Watch this space for details on our opening day. Behind the scenes we are planning new events and instructors to make the most of this wonderful new facility. 
The school is not the only change occurring on the yard. With the addition of new safety gates, a brand new reception area we hope to improve our services to you.

It is with great sadness I write this section in loving memory of the wonderful and gorgeous Walimar.

Those who have been following the story will know how at the end of last year he suffered a life threatening injury. Sadly 9 months later Walimar lost his fight. After a massive operation which hosted many complications, and a very long period of box rest, Walimar was giving the all clear to start controlled exercise. Over the next few weeks the wound unfortunately started to break down and the scar tissue was no longer holding anything together. After a long discussion with our vet it was decided that the kindest thing for Walimar was to be out to sleep. Walimar has joined Moonlight and many other fine noble equine friends, but has left a massive stamp in everyone's hearts. 
Rest In Peace Walimar x

Enlightened Equitation

Kim not only is busy with her horses and the new build, she has also returned to Heather Moffet based in Devon, to train as an Enlightened Equitation Level 2 instructor. As part of her training, Heather required many riders and horses over the week, so Kate took Boo for a day and Kim took Charlie up for the week. Not only was fun had by all but the feedback from Heather herself was incredible.

"Thanks to Kate McGowan and Kim Northcott's utterly amazing Friesian mare, who has improved out of all recognition since the last time we saw her. Kim hadn't long had her and she was still very run up and greyhound shape. But now. Wow! She passaged into the school and did some pretty impressive impromptu caprioles before Kate, bravely got on. This breed never ceases to impress me. The natural elevation and cadence, rhythm you can set a metronome to. And a natural ability to 'sit' and extend too!! 
We've had Kim's lovely ID x Appaloosa Charlie here too for the duration and yet again, what a massive difference Kim has made in this horse. He had a very small shuffling trot when I first saw him this time last year. Wow! What a different horse! He now has a super trot and a canter simply to die for. He'd be a top class maxi cob if she hogged that mane!" 
Hearing such wonderful comments from such an experienced horseman is just so amazing and certainly gives us something to be proud of as a yard. 
Kim was also a very lucky lady and got the chance to ride, under Heather' tuition, Sultan, Heather's newest addition to the yard. We wish Kim all the best of luck over the few months with her training and all of her case studies she will be working on. 
As part of the new indoor school the yard welcomes Tallulah Mcintosh, an EE level 3 instructor, to the team. Tallulah works on a Wednesday afternoon either teaching EE or schooling some of the younger horses ready for their introduction into the school in later months.
