Zoe Wilkinson Spending 5 years working for Paul and George at Tapner Eventing Team provided me with the all of the fundamental knowledge and know-how to be able to successfully run my own string of competition horses when I decided to set up my own business and yard. For as long as I’ve known them, […]
Tapner’s Inonothing retired
This is Wiltshire – 3rd May 2013
An exciting new video venture!
Jenny Waaler’s Inonothing (Mannie) has had a month of training with show jumping lessons with Ros and some XC schooling sessions. He next heads to Little Downham to contest the Advanced competition. Captain Fred and Penny Barker, Vicki Mace-Benson’s and Georgina Tapner’s Wickstead Didgeridoo (Balloo) had an annoying Blenheim he produced a good dressage for him at […]
Disappointment at Burghley
Jenny Waaler’s Inonothing (Mannie) had a disappointing Burghley, he excelled himself in the dressage nailing all 4 changes and finishing on a score of 45.3 in 12thplace. The dressage is Mannies weakest phase due to it being very unnatural to him, but he really tried his hardest so we were all thrilled. However the joy turned […]
Rosettes for every horse this month!
We have had a great July with EVERY team horse coming home with a rosette!! This also leaving Paul ranked 4thin the country half way through the season and Mannie ranked 12thand Kilronan 18th out of the top horses! Jenny Waaler’s Inonothing (Mannie) had enjoyed a short holiday and now has come back into work ready for […]
Crazy weather… weeks of dry, hard ground and now it’s too wet
What a funny month we started off worrying about hard ground and ended up with events being cancelled three weekends in a row! With Withington being cancelled it gave the Tapner family a chance to join Claire Lomas on her quest to walk the London Marathon. Claire was paralysed from the waist down after a […]
The season kicks off and we’re thrilled to have Mannie back in action!
And were off!!! So far so good, all the horses are going well and glad to be back out doing what they enjoy! I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce our team of staff for this season. Kiri Snell has been with us since June 2011 and she brings her horse “Taz”. Rowan Collins […]
A European month – Le Lion, Boekelo and Pau
Sue White’s Kilfinnie (Scottie) made the long trip all the way down to the south of France to compete in Pau CCI****. Scottie produced a good dressage but unfortunately sustained a fetlock sprain on the XC and although he was clear he was unable to complete the event – a very sad end to the season. […]
An impressive hatrick for the lovely Kilronan
September has seen a few good WINS to spur the team on. We have also seen some staff changes, firstly I would like to thank our head girl Zoe Wilkinson for again helping to form such a strong back bone in our team whilst these changes happen. It is so good for the horses to have a few constant […]
Ups and downs – that’s eventing!
August has been a real rollercoaster of a month for the team. Unfortunately some really promising horses have sustained injuries, although most will return to normal duties in a couple of months, it is of great concern to all. It seems we are not alone in this problem with other event riders reporting similar problems […]
