A fantastic & local new sponsor for GHE!

Well this week just gets better and better! Frances from Hoplands Equestrian Centre got back in touch after I initially emailed her at the start of the year to offer me sponsorship in the form of free use of all the facilities at Hoplands until 2010! Eeeeeeke! excited is an understatement! It seems she has been keeping an eye on the blog and my antics, and decided that even though they couldn’t sponsor me financially, free use of their for hire facilities would be a great way to help me as a local rider progress this season, and I whole heartedly agree! 🙂


This is going to be such a fab opportunity for us because costs start to get ridiculous when you have to pay to hire a venue, pay an instructor, and fill up with diesel to tow somewhere, so it will do my bank balance the world of good! Most importantly for us it will give us the chance to practise our SJing at a competition standard venue but minus the distractions of an actual competition. We have Mattingley BE90 this Sunday and once Soap is recovered from that I plan to take him to Hoplands for some SJ practise over their ‘Jump for Joy’ fences, so watch this space for lots of pics!!! As well as the outdoor SJ arena and jumps they also hire out their –
. XC training paddock with 60+ fences from tiny to Intermediate
. 70×25 indoor school with jumps.
. 1 mile gallop track with warm up loop

So if you are planning to go schooling at Hoplands I might see you there!
