Outer Mongolia is an actual place! And I was there

Connolly’s RED MILLS really is a global organisation. This becomes even more poignant when your mission is to travel to Outer Mongolia to give nutrition seminars to the trainers.

As you can imagine, my dear darling husband was highly amused by the idea of sending me off to Outer Mongolia. The amusement value was slightly overshadowed when he realised that the dishwasher fairy and the cooking fairy were joining me on my trip!

Tattersalls hosted the Connolly's RED MILLS SuperLeague Championship 2013, on the 1st of September.

Eleven riders entered on the day and it was a tough competition for all involved. The winning riders however were Michael Ryan on Ballylynch Wizard, Steven Smith on Youngstar's Cheetah and Fraser Duffy on Primus, all fantastic riders and well done to them all!

Nutrients Without the Calories

Nutrients Without the Calories

I realise it is very late in the year, but… yes my two old dears have just foaled. I probably have the youngest foals in the country.

Rescued from the jaws of eminent death the two mares came to me late in the breeding season last year. After a barrage of thinly veiled threats from me they duly went in foal within 24 hours of each other.

It’s Hot Out There!

This beautiful hot weather is something we are all enjoying, but it does make exercise that bit harder for our horses and effects their need for electrolytes.

Electrolytes are minerals that are dissolved in body fluids. They are vital for a wide range of body functions such as regulation of all body fluid levels into and out of the cells, nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction, as well as pumping of the heart, movement of food and water through the gut and the filtering of waste products through the kidney and liver.

Badminton Update from Sam Watson

There’s absolutely no doubt that Badminton is the biggest event in the World. 150,000 people turned up on cross country day and, as a rider, performing on a stage of this magnitude is what the sport is all about.

We travelled George (Horseware Bushman) through the night to get there. He’s crossed the Irish Sea about fifty times at this stage so it doesn’t take anything out of him, and the journey is really as short as it gets taking just ten hours from door to door.
