Ian Fearon Showjumping Clinic I was recently given the opportunity to take part in an Ian Fearon showjumping Clinic. This was kindly organised by my riding club, Benbulben RC.

That is the question.

The photo that inspired it all. 10 years ago on a stormy January Sunday with my original seahorse, Solas 💙 🌊 Day 19 of the @rivieraprltd #trotinto2020 January challenge is a #socialsunday - what inspires your social media page? 🌊 I can't explain it but there is something about the sea that makes me feel "at home." It's the same feeling I get when walking into the stables early in the morning, when it's silent and calm, and get greeted by the gentle nickers of my horses. 🌊 I've been lucky enough to have grown up with Solas. With no arena or access to shows or lessons growing up, we learned by trial and error. I had to learn to control a bolting and bucking youngster in wide open spaces - or sell him. I opted to learned, quick! 🌊 I can't ever imagine living somewhere that's not close to the sea or horses. Now home with two horses, miles from training facilities and opportunities, we use what we have as best as we can and school and train on the beaches and quiet roads around us. 🌊 We've made many friends from this account and have been afforded some amazing opportunities as a result of it. It can be tough at times, especially when work and bad weather stop you from getting out for a ride, or distance makes it difficult to get to a lesson or show. But I love sharing these views and the beauty of our patch of the west of Ireland with you all! I hope you enjoy do too. 🌊💙 🐎💙🌊 . #wildatlanticrider #wawpics #WARHorse #WARider #oceanview #vitaminsea #surf #seahorse #inspiration #wildatlanticway #ireland #atlantic #surfersparadise #surfsup
Got a bitta food on yo’face there, hun! #FollowFriday for #trotinto2020 has to be @bluegrasshorsefeed I’ve been using their #Turmash for nearly a year now and my two literally cannot get enough of it. It has many health benefits and suits both of my horses needs, but what I really love about it is how palatable it is to the horses and how affordable it is to my wallet. One bag goes a long way. 🌊 Why do I recommend it? 🌊 Bluegrass Turmash is a Quick soaking high fibre and oil, cereal free, conditioning Mash. It contains Turmeric which has anti-inflammatory properties and is fortified with high quality vitamins and minerals. The high fibre content promotes a healthy gastrointestinal tract. It’s a non-heating feed with slow release energy sources. 🌊 Turmash contains linseed, a naturally high source of omega 3, to help promote joint health, glossy coat and condition. It promotes weight gain and condition, gastrointestinal health, has anti-inflammatory effects and aids joint health and recovery. 🌊 Both my horses are in their “veteran” years and have slightly different needs, but this is a feed that suits both for different reasons. Plus it smells like a mild curry 🤤 #feedyourface #poweredbybluegrass #bluegrasshorsefeed #palomino
Remember sunny days? 🥺 The Erris Agricultural show is my favourite show of the year. It's only 10 minutes drive from my house - considering we normally have a two hour round trip just to go jumping, having this show down the road is a real luxury! If you're ever in the west and want to jump on probably the best natural surface possible, this is the show. The naturally sandy soil adds a nice bounce to the ground. Even on the days where it's been bucketing down the ground never gets chopped up or heavy. Plus the fact we are great craic in Belmullet, voted the best place to "go wild" in Ireland, you'll be entertained! So even if you dont bring a horse there is plenty to see and do! #errisagriculturalshow #trotinto2020 #wildatlanticrider #WARider #WARHorse #showjumpersofinstagram #showjumper #holsteinerverband #throwbackthursday
