It was another successful weekend for Team Dewicwrt at the Cricklands Championship🏅with lots of wins and everyone placed in nearly all of their classes over the three days. The team showjumping was one of the highlights😊 a huge thank you to Sam and Steve from The Bear Hotel for sponsoring our team outfits.

Operating as usual
What a day was had today by Team Dewicwrt - It's fair to say the girls smashed it💪 between the three of them Grace, Anna and Izzy claimed the top four spots in the 60, top three in the 70 and top two placings in the 80🏆 our chef d'equipe (Jackie) must be doing something right😉
Christmas came early with a new sign at Dewicwrt thanks to Nigel and his elves at N R Brown Farriers. The ponies were treated with early Christmas presents which kept them busy🐴.
The last few days of lessons before the new year have been undertaken in true Dewicwrt style...
🎅🎄our annual Christmas gymkhana🎄🎅
which brought out the competitive side in both people and ponies alike with plenty of thrills and spills along the way! As you can see from the photo, the excitement was all too much for Jackie🙈.
We would like to wish each and every one of our Dewicwrt riders a very merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year😊.
All things being well lessons will recommence Saturday 8th January.
Proof that even at three days old you get that Friday feeling 🙈
Gerty welcomed a pretty little filly into the world on Wednesday who finally managed to make it out today without her armbands - as you can see she couldn’t stop smiling 😆
What better way to deflect on the week than sitting down and taking in this view ❤️
And with the blink of an eye it’s the end of the Easter Holidays marking 3 weeks full of lots of riding and pony fun🐣
Thank you to all of the old and new faces who have supported us since re opening - I’m not sure who’s most tired the ponies or Jackie... but there’s no rest for the wicked 🙈
Refuelled by this little man we are ready for the weekend 💪🏼
🌟 Saturday 27th March 2021 🌟
Have you heard the news? Our holiday is about to come to an end 🙈
Put the date in the diary as that is when we can welcome you all back to Dewicwrt... what better way to start the Easter Holidays 🐣
Following recent guidance it has been confirmed that you can all be reunited with your favourites ponies and get to hear Jackies lovely voice once again... I’m sure it’s been missed 😉
Please do get in touch if you would like to book in for a lesson - Jackie will respond as soon as she is able to 🐴
See you all very soon 🎉
We hope you’ve all enjoyed your first day back to school - just think one step closer until you can join us again 🐴
Following the announcement last week it is not yet clear a date at which we can reopen just yet - as soon as we are given a date you’ll be the first to know 🏴
Whilst we can’t open for riding lessons we have taken the time to be very productive!
The arena has been given a well earned facelift with a new fence complete by Chris Martin Fencing and a new seating area has been constructed by our handy man Clive (modelled by Jackie enjoying the sun)🌞
We hope you are all staying safe and well and hopefully it’s not too much longer until we see you all soon 🙈
Happy St David’s Day 🏴
Not only that but also we welcome the first day of spring ☀️
As you can see the ponies aren’t finished with their holidays just yet 😎
It may have been a long winter but these sunny days are a reminder that better days are coming our way 💪🏼
We hope you are all keeping safe and well - we have been productive once again over this lockdown and can’t wait for you to see the hard work 🙈
And with a blink of an eye we are in February🐴
As you can see not even Grace armed with treats is enough to encourage the ponies in from their holidays - they are most definitely enjoying the lockdown number 3 😂
We hope you are all staying safe and well in these strange times - just remember we’ve got this 💪🏼
So today consisted of a day in the Pooch Pamper Parlour in preparation for Coopers first appearance in Homeschooling Zoom Show and Tell 🙈
Jackie is feeling a little hesitant but both Grace and Cooper are super excited that it means Cooper will get to come in and explore the house before settling down infront of the fire for the class 🐶
We hope you are all staying safe and well 🐴
Whilst we may be on lockdown and not able to enjoy any winter holidays - our school ponies are making the most of the winter sunshine enjoying theirs 🙈
We hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well in these uncertain times - just remember better times are coming our way 🤞🏼
We would like to wish you all a Happy New Year from Team Dewicwrt and hope to see you all again soon to have some fun once we are safe and able to do so🐴
The Welsh Government has spoken which means the ponies Christmas wishes have come early and their holidays start from midnight tonight 🕰
This means all lessons booked ahead of this date are unfortunately cancelled for the foreseeable future 😢
We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support and can’t wait to welcome you all back as soon as the Welsh Government confirm we are safe to do so 🏴
We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Dewicwrt 🎅🏼
Stay safe and we will see you in the New Year ❤️
Lockdown may be looming but we aren’t letting that spoil the Christmas Spirit 🎅🏼
Today we had a very competitive start to the gymkhana weekend with the Ladies gymkhana 🏅
Smiles all around - keep an eye out for the thrills and spills that will come this weekend 🙈
Happy Gotcha Day Cooper 🎉
Who would have thought when you were dropped off a year ago you would have made such an impact on the yard... your fascination with anything steal-able, anything edible, anything fashionable and well just anything really makes everyday an exciting one 🙈
It wouldn’t be the same without you ❤️
🏴Following Mark Drakesfords announcement on Monday we are pleased to announce we are back up and open for business on Monday 9th November 2020 following the Firebreak 🔥
We thought it best to allow the ponies to enjoy their holiday for as long as possible before breaking the news to them - as you can see Abigail wasn’t best pleased 🙈
But we are pleased to say all of the other ponies reactions were far better and they can not wait to see you all (I think they were getting bored) 🐴
Unfortunate due to the lockdown restrictions in England we won’t be able to see our friends from over the border just yet but will look forward to seeing you again once the restrictions are lifted 🏴
We hope you are all well and have stayed safe and heathy during this lockdown - we can wait to see you all soon for some more fun 🐎
Hamish is rather pleased with the 2 weeks lockdown... it means 2 weeks off after all 🙈
As for all businesses across wales we will be going into lockdown as of 6pm Friday 23rd October 2020 for two weeks - as you can see the ponies are overjoyed with their two weeks holiday 🐴
We hope you all stay safe and can’t wait to see you all again very soon 😊
🧩 Puzzle had a visitor today... his first visit from Uncle Dave the vet 🙈 he wasn’t overtly impressed at first with the microchip scanner but once he realised Dave was actually a passport artist he couldn’t wait to see the finished product and check he’d got his best side🐴
So after we have all managed at least 3 weeks back to school we are still receiving smiles like this 😊 don’t forget if you do want to join in the fun we do evenings and weekend lessons and can cater for all abilities 🐴
What better way to spend a Bank Holiday Sunday than a hack to the pub 🙈 Thank you very much to the Tod family for their hospitality... what better way to learn to ride 🐴 The Red Hart Llanvapley
As you can see the boys can’t wait to tell you about our taster lesson 🙈
Why not make the most of the summer holidays and try something new... or maybe get back into the hobby you once loved 🐴
Age is just a number - your never too old to find a new hobby - please get in touch to find out more 🐎
What makes this beautiful weather even more enjoyable is getting to take it in and enjoy the views between two ears of a horse☀️
We would love to share it with you - we are very lucky to have access to some fantastic hacking facilities right on our doorstep - if you would be interested in escaping the real world for a short while and enjoying an accompanied hack in our wonderful countryside - please do get in touch 🐴
Hello July 🌞
Whilst Jackie has been busy teaching the last couple of weeks, Cooper has been very productive with his time and learnt a few new tricks 🐶 here’s a snippet for you all to enjoy 🙈
We would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far both old and new and can’t wait to welcome back our friends from across the border now restrictions are lifting to join in the fun 🐴
We hope you are all safe and are looking forward to what July has in store for us all🐎
Meet our new school pony Gaea who is more than happy with her new sun hat 👒 we’ve had a warm start to the week but all of our ponies are keeping hydrated and toped up on suncream to ensure they can keep on having fun teaching you at all to ride 🐴
The forecast ahead is a warm one so please don’t forget your suncream and to bring a drink - it’s hard work riding in the sun 🌞
We hope you are all staying healthy and safe and I’m sure we will see you all soon 🙈
Well what a first week back we’ve had 🙈
The ponies aren’t quite sure what has hit them and nor is Jackie 😴 Cooper on the other hand is more than pleased to have seen so many new people to give him a cuddle 🐶
We have been overwhelmed with the support we’ve had from both old faces and new and can’t thank you all enough 🐴
We are all here to learn to ride and have some fun... who knows we may even find the next Charlotte Dujardin or AP McCoy 😉
‘‘Twas the night before the reopening of the riding school,
When all through the yard not a pony was stirring, please don’t be fooled!
The bridles hung on the doors with care,
Hoping the children would soon be there!
The ponies were restless all tucked up in bed,
Whilst Jackie, a million thoughts run through her head!
Once all ponies were asleep, happy dreams arose,
With visions of their friends, a jumping they will go!
For in just a few hours, the new day will come,
And all will awake to the bright morning sun!
Ponies with fresh trims, new shoes and a smile,
All fidget and fumble with excitement for a while!
The ponies all whinny with glee to say,
‘I’m ready to do this, let me get on my way’!
Jackie stands back with happiness and fear,
For the long awaited reopening is finally here!
We can’t wait to see you all 🐴
⚠️ We have a very important announcement ⚠️
Not only today have we had the arrival of our miniature Shetland foal 🙈 but also we have received guidance from the BHS this afternoon to advise that following the announcement from the Welsh Government we are able to offer private and household lessons 🎉
If you would like to book in for a lesson please contact 07970040064 📞 lessons will be paid for by BACs (in line with guidelines) on booking 😊 please note strict social distancing guidelines will be adhered to!
We’ve been very busy whilst in lockdown and can’t wait for you to meet all of our new arrivals and see all of our handy work 😉
See you all very soon 🐴
Puzzle would like to say hello to all of his friends🐴
The much loved character that has already stolen so many hearts whilst keeping spirits up in lockdown has kept himself busy completing his training and is now officially halter broken and leads around like a big boy... it’s the least we could do to give Hera 5 minutes peace 🙈
We hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the sunshine just like Puzzle - who really can’t wait to meet you all ❤️
Puzzle has a sister 🙈
We are very pleased to introduce to you the newest arrival to team Dewicwrt - Jess has produced a lovely little filly foal who has stolen our hearts at a week old with her enquisitive personality 🐴
We hope this started your weekend off with a smile, stay safe and we will see you soon 😊
Daisy is asking everyone to please respect lockdown rules so we can get back to normal as soon as possible - she really can’t wait for Grace to return to school... she’s running out of disguise 😂
We hope you are all staying safe and enjoying the sunshine and hope to see you all soon 🐴
As we announced a further 3 weeks of lockdown to the team (another 3 weeks holiday), we thought we would bring you their reactions 🐴 :
Wayne celebrated by playing with his cone, for Pegasus it was all too much and he needed to take a nap to let it all sink in😴 , Marshall has had to keep himself entertained with a banana peel 🍌, Cooper felt the need to take a nice cold bath to let it all sink in 🛁 whilst George however is feeling the strain of the lockdown and cannot wait to be set free 🐎
These are just a few of the teams reaction 🙈 we hope you are all staying safe and healthy!
Thank you very much to everyone who has taken part to help us find a name for our little foal - there were some fantastic names suggested but as you can see the fitting name for our feisty little c**t is Puzzle 🧩
Puzzle is a right little character who can’t wait to have an audience to entertain... it’ll give his mother 5 minutes piece anyway 🙈
We hope you are all keeping well and positive and can’t wait to see you all again soon 🐴
⚠️ Warning - cuteness alert 🚨 but we need your help...
We may be in lockdown but Mother Nature doesn’t stop for anyone and Sunday morning we woke up to a very welcomed new arrival 😍 Hera gave birth to a very handsome c**t foal (little boy) whom we are all smitten with ❤️
With many people having some extra time on their hands we thought that you could help us... can you think of a stable name for this lovely little boy? 💙
The person who comes up with the winning name will receive a free taster lesson and a chance to meet the little man himself 🐴
Please don’t hesitate to share and get involved - the more suggestions the merrier... the winning name will be announced on Friday afternoon so keep your eyes out 👀
