Ayr County Show

We had a fantastic time in Ayr last weekend, and it was a lot easier to get to than we thought! Rebecca, Ronan, Tinker, Tim (our other new funny man) and I left early on Friday morning and arrived nine hours later at Ayr Racecourse. Both our shows went really well on Saturday, despite a very sudden and very heavy downpour five minutes from the end of the first show, causing me to slip and land smack on my bottom! However, the new duo went absolutely brilliantly! All our new costumes went down really well and looked amazing, and Tinker and Ronan were fantastic for the roman riding, completely dispelling all our worries. Everything went really well on Sunday too. In the morning we took the horses for a walk around the racecourse, the jumps are huge! We were cantering up to them and I'm sure Tink would have had a go at jumping one, I was really struggling to stop him at one point! The racecourse must have given him ideas for the rest of the day because he spent most of the two shows whizzing around at what felt like a hundred miles an hour! It was loads of fun though and eveyone really enjoyed themselves. Tim did very well in his first Jive Pony shows, we properly threw him in at the deep end with the duos! Have a look at some photos from the weekend by clicking here, theres lots of everything!

We're doing a parade in Newbury on Sunday, but just Rebecca, Ronan and I, so Tinker gets the weekend off. I'll let you know how it goes!

Lots of love,
