Hello! Welcome to the diary of my “event horse” project.
I’m an amateur rider based in the South West and working in finance. Two years ago I made an impulse purchase of a 2 year old filly called Tallulah (Lulu). So far she has been a much adored pet, but now that she’s turned 4 this blog will be my diary as I attempt to train her from scratch and (fingers crossed) eventually take her to some British Eventing one day events and earn her the title of Event Horse.
My job requires me to travel most weeks, meaning my horsey life has been a little crazy and isolated and a constant battle for time (and money!), and lack of practice has often caused me crises of confidence. But a young horse is a huge responsibility and I’ve decided to prioritise the thing I love, rather than let my working life rule. It will be a looong road to our first event with many ups and downs but hopefully this blog will capture all of the madness and all of the highs, and give us some wonderful memories to look back on and realise how far we have come.
