Funny Man!

Hooray! We've found a new glamourous asisstant! He's called Simon and he's very very funny! We had our first rehearsal with Simon and Ronan together this afternoon, and you'd never guess Simon's only been on a horse a couple of times, him and Ronan looked like they'd been together forever. He also rode Thunderhoof really well (not as easy as it looks) - as you can see from the picture!
Hopefully Simon will be with us for most of the summer, so make sure you look out for him in the shows. He's got quite a big part in the new duo show, so along with learning our other three shows he's got quite a bit of work to do! Click here to see some photo's of Simon's first rehearsal.
The countdown has begun and it's now less than four weeks until our first show, when Rebecca, Simon, Ronan, Tinker and I will be heading off to Woodgreen Animal Shelter in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. If you're anywhere nearby make sure you come and see us, we're looking forward to seeing everybody again!
See you soon,
lots of love

Happy 2008!

Happy belated 2008!

Preparations are now well under way for our 2008 season, which kicks off in just six weeks! Rebecca and I have been very busy rehearsing our current shows, writing a new duo show, making new soundtracks, getting new costumes together, sorting out props, as well as getting ourselves and the horses fit!

Tinker and Ronan both had a nice relaxing winter, but are now both working really hard on their vaulting and their dances, hopefully we'll have a few more tricks to show you all this summer! Sonny is going well and should do a few shows this year to help ease the load on Ronan, and Casper's range of tricks means he should be able to perform a dance by the end of the season. Fingers crossed for both of them!!

Due to changes in circumstances Duncan won't be performing with us this year so we've been on the look out for a new glamarous assisstant - it's a tricky role to fill, Thunderhooves is not an easy horse to handle!! Watch this space to see how we get on...

We've got shows all over this year, from Ayr to Devon, Suffolk to Carmarthen, so we're bound to be near you at some point! Check out our calendar to see where we'll be, and we look forward to seeing you there!

Hope all of you and your horses and ponies are well and happy,

lots of love
