March 9th Next lesson...

Posted by A O'Neill on Saturday, March 9, 2013, In : Day to day 
Today Jasper has been a star! After a lethargic start Jude jumped on for 5 minutes and we then had an awesome lesson. Much improved with his medium work and rein back. Although he does reins back well in harness he has suddenly decided he doesn't know what rein back is under saddle, which is odd as that is where he orginally learnt to rein back. Very pleased with him. Spent the rest of the day getting ready for our competion tomorrow. Thank you to my sister Kiera for cleaning my carriage in e...

December 14th Home from Uni

Posted by A O'Neill on Tuesday, December 25, 2012, In : Day to day 
I can hardly believe my first term at uni is over! I have enjoyed it so much but I am definitely ready to come home to recharge my batteries. My holidays look set to be busy as usual with competitions and work to do to as well as the usual commitments of family and uni work.
In truth right now I am very tired and just looking forward to a nice lie in as well as to driving Jasper.

June 15th Exams are finished!

Yes thats right, no more A levels! Now I can stop worring about school work and concentrate on horses, which lets face it, I would much rather focus on!
All I can do is hope and pray that two years of hard work will pay off with good results. I am in the process of applying for Geology at University after the crushing disapointment of not getting into vet school I have decided not to put myself through it again and change course. Hopefully I will get a place at uni soon :)

March 28th

I had a letter from Nottingham Vet School today telling me I didn't get in which was gutting. Feeling pretty bad and low about it. Luckily we are off to Keysoe this weekend which should take my mind off it. Still its pretty hard being the only person with no offers and knowing you will be the only one of your friends left behind. Haven't decided if I will reaply or not yet so will just have to see and try to concentrate on Keysoe instead.

March 8th Results day :)

Posted by A O'Neill on Monday, March 12, 2012, In : Day to day 
Results day is a word that strikes fear into the heart of teenangers everywhere. It is the day where you can no longer hide from anyone, including yourself that you did not work hard enough and you will have to man up and face it. For me I have always been away competing with the horses on my major results days for my GCSE's and AS levels so have had to sit nervously waiting for a phone call. So walking into the hall and opening THAT envelope for my A2 January modules is a bit of an unusual e...
