Another day at Bury Farm Equestrian Village yesterday, this time it was my turn to get in the saddle. Super result in the Advanced Medium for Nazareno Vicon with a 7th place finish on 68.68% in a very hot class, filled full of some very nice horses! The Medium was not our finest hour, all the counter canter is very boring now that we can do exciting flying changes thought Nasa.. Unfortunately they weren’t required at that level. Hey ho it was a nice problem to have!! Time now for him to crack on at the PSGs
Another incredible day at the Bury Farm summer regionals. Congratulations to Andre Lanning on his 3rd place in the Elementary. Keeping everything crossed for that wild card!!! A massive well done to Ben Franklin Dressage who riding Rosemary Mckerrell DeAngelis finished in a fantastic 2nd place and qualified for the Nationals in September!
Massive congratulations to client Amber Young who, riding Ruby De La Cruz did a stirling job at the Bury Farm regionals, qualifying for the British Dressage National Championships in September!!! An incredible achievement in their first season at affiliated competitions.
Very happy to hear all my clients doing so well at the Wellington Area Festivals this weekend, some even qualifying for the second rounds. Amazing guys!!
Great show with mine and Kirsty Anthony’s Sanssouci today at the Dressage at Hickstead Summer regionals. 6th place finish in a very HOT Medium Gold class!! The top 5 qualified so just missed out, fingers crossed for a wildcard.
This morning we snuck off to Bury Farm to compete Maria Dent’s Nazareno Vicon in his first PSG!!! He was an absolute star, a few green mistakes that can easily be built on but a good finish with just over 66%. Can’t wait to get him out to his next one!
A quick outing to Snowball Farm for Rob and Sanssouci ended well when they brought home first place in the Medium. This was a great pre regional confidence boast before they head to Hickstead on the 15th July.
Rob Waine Dressage was very honoured to be asked by Horse & Hound magazine to review a number of tack cleaning products for their readers. Check out what we thought by clicking on the link below:
What a fantastic week for client Mari Durward Akhurst at the Hartpury CDI***. A super result aboard Sky O Hara with two international wins for Great Britain in the Grade 1 Para Individual test and the Grade 1 Freestyle. A very proud trainer moment…
A win for Sanssouci in the Medium today at Snowball Farm. It was great to be back out after spending the Winter training and building up her strength.
Another super day aboard Maria Dent’s Nazareno Vicon. This time at Widmer Equestrian Centre. It was Nasa’s first advanced medium and he didn’t disappoint bring home a 1st place with 70%!!
Super result at Bury Farm yesterday with Maria Dent’s Nazareno Vicon in the Mediums. Two first place positions even with a few cheeky flying changes! This horse is just incredible and loves to work.
Wow!! Very exciting day here at RWD!! I am very proud to announce that I will be joining the team at Stübben UK & Ireland as one of their brand ambassadors. After testing out their amazing bridles for a couple of months I can whole heartedly say how incredible they are. Both horses felt lighter, more up hill and generally more comfortable. Cici is pictured wearing the Switch Magic Tack Bridle and Nasa is wearing the Freedom Magic Tack which have to say I love. Both have the most amazing system with their browbands. They are magnetic so no more taking your bridle apart to change those diamonds!!! You can trial both of these bridles at Equine Essentials Direct just to make sure you to can feel the difference. #teamstuebben
A very sad day today here at RWD.
Due to owners personal circumstances we waved goodbye to BamBam as he set off to his new home.
It has been a huge honour to train this cheeky, loveable and sometimes down right stubborn boy from Novice through to International Small Tour. Something I am hugely proud of, made even more special by the fact many people couldn’t ride him.
A massive thank you to his owner Brenda for joining me up with her boy in what has been a fantastic few years and has provided a lot of people with lots of moments of happiness.
I wish his new rider all the luck in the world and we will all continue to watch his career stay going from strength to strength.
I’am very proud to announce that Rob Waine Dressage is now sponsored by the lovely Tara at The Simple Equine.
Tara and her team have worked tirelessly to produce a range of high class, stylish, natural products for both horse and rider. We have been using these products on our horses for a while now and they are fantastic. Top class products for top class horses.
Please do check out their website at www.thesimpleequine.com
So it’s been confirmed, the National Anthem has rung out again. Nazareno and I are European Champions!!!! This horse is such an amazing person, thank you so much to Maria & Steve Dent for allowing me to have the honour of training their superstar. Who would have thought it, bought for the film Cinderella and now dancing away in the dressage arena.
The National Anthem rang out here in Paris for Rob and Maria & Steve Dent’s Nazareno Vicon. On their first international competition together they won the Carmencita Freestyle with a huge 77%!! Fingers crossed they can repeat their magic tomorrow in the straight test.
Very honoured to be this week’s Horse and Hound ‘Best of my Fun’
Check out today’s Horse and Hound to see what’s surprised Rob and Nasa!
And the journey home begins…what an absolutely incredible 5 days it has been. Never at my first international did I think that I would qualify for the Kur, where we finished up an super 10th place and the best Brit. Not bad for never having ridden the music before and never having competed in an Int1 freestyle. Huge thank you to the guys that came along to support, the girls at home, Rhi for making Bam look amazing the whole time, Brenda for being Brenda and finally BamBam for making my dreams come true.
