Hedge Jumping at the Bramwells

What a fantastic way to start the season - an amazing hedge schooling session at the Bramwells.  Huge thanks to Richard and Jane for inviting us.  Thank you also to Nic and Tracey who immaculately trimmed the hedges to varying heights.

A number of us arrived on a beautiful sunny day to the Bramwell, we warmed up over a few showjump poles then on to some hunt hurdles.  Then Tracey and Lindsey gave excellent leads to some of us who needed it on young/new or spooky horses over the hedges. 

Tommy and Ollie Hurst showed us how to do it and jumped a good few of the hedges different ways.  Tommy's new horse for the season looks set to give us all a lead should we need it! All the horses were very good considering this was in cold blood and not the usual way to start the season...but a very enjoyable way.  We were then treated to some lovely tea back at the house and a demonstration of how to bounce hedges by Richard's poodle over the miniature hedges in the garden.

A good time was had by all, thank you again to Richard and Jayne.
