So we’ve had a very, very busy summer with Rempstone Show to start with, then Long Lane Equestrian Show followed by Sutton Bonington Show the weekend after.
Long Lane Show, in aid of the Willberry Wonder Pony charity, was a success plus we got to watch pretty ponies all day. With our stand right outside the show jumping arena, we had a brilliant view of all the action, but we ended up with a bad case of i-want-to-jump-itis!! We met some very cute ponies, especially the ones with glitter everywhere (Charlotte still refuses to let me cover Rupert in glitter boooo).

We also had the best neighbouring stand ever- Hoots Owls!! I absolutely fell in love with Khan (aka Mr Grumpy!!!) and his eyes, all the owls are rescues. They’re only based in East Leake at Manor Farm is a great place to visit, we’ll definitely be going with Leon again soon.
The weekend after, we packed our stock up, put the tent up and unloaded the stock all over again for Sutton Bonington Show. Although, it wasn’t as busy as last year (the show’s 30th year), we were rushed off our feet and didn’t get a chance to breathe! Very successful show for us and cleared plenty of stock to make way for new stock and gifts for autumn and winter (yay!).
We went to Sutton Bonington Show with Spillers again, running a competition (guess how many meadowherb treats in a jar) offering a Spillers hoodie and 3 months of Spillers horse feed for free from us at the shop. Steph, representing Spillers, offered plenty of advice for horse’s diets throughout the day, as well as entertaining Leon (who seemed scarily obsessed with her!). Grace Moore, aged 10, won our competition with the closest guess, so we can’t wait to see photos in her hoodie and her very happy pony!
Just after opening
We had a prime spot for watching the Quack Pack (thank God, Charlotte didn’t stop talking about it for the whole week running up to the show!) but we were too busy to have a proper look around the rest of the show. Apart from the food stands. We made sure we were regular customers!!
This Kanyon Fisher coat is gorgeous and it just so happens to be in my size, so I might have to take it home with me haha
Giving our model Mabel a hug
After we packed everything away from the show on Sunday, we
had a nice relaxing Monday got up early on Monday to head to the NEC for Autumn Fair 2017. No rest for the wicked and all…
