Mariel is working on her seat and position today, I don't think Willow is too impressed!
Delighted to announce that after my clinic in New England in October, I'll be heading to Toronto for a two day masterclass at Caledon Equestrian Park, which was home to the 2015 Pan American Games. Really looking forward to meeting some of you there and exploring Ontario! The ticket line is now open and full details can be found on the poster below.

A fantastic farewell from Valegro in Holland!
Playing the generation game! Gold medallist Valegro posing with his father Negro, and Negro's owners, ahead of tonight's farewell ceremony!
This weekend Valegro is back in Holland to say goodbye to his homeland and his Dutch fans. I think he knows those cameras are for him!

Very happy to announce that I will heading to California in April for a two - day teaching clinic in hopefully some sunshine!! All details are below and I look forward to seeing some of you on the West Coast in a few months!
Happy team in the Amsterdam World Cup qualifier today . Barney was superb to ride and finished second to an amazing performance from Isabell Werth! Hopefully the final in Omaha is becoming a reality!
Day 1 and a little tentative. I was dozy in the zig zag but tomorrow is the big day and I'm going for it! Happy with 3rd and 76.2%.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me to win the Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year! Congratulations to all the other winners. It makes Sark and the Channel Islands even more special to me! Now back to work, Barney and I are on at 13.45 and Henriette Anderson at 12.12 (Dutch time).
Here in Amsterdam for the world cup qualifier! Early start tomorrow but I'm staying up late without a drink in sight for the results of the Channel Islands Sports Personality of the Year. If you can spare a vote for me I'd be grateful as it's Nip (and) Tuck to the finish line! Please call before 10pm tonight! 08456065503
My good friend Nicole Graf (and honourary Brit) has finally persuaded me to visit New England! It didn't take much persuading so I am hoping some of you can join me on the East Coast in October!

Valegro's Farewell: Memories of a dressage superstar
I come from the tiny island of Sark in the Channel Islands with a population of approx 600. If they were all to vote for me they would have to at least 20 times each if I have any hope of winning! Call me competitive but is there any way you could help???

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas. 2016 has been a memorable year for team Hester and our fantastic horses. Rio was amazing, not only us, but for British Dressage. Winning team silver, Valegro's incredible second Olympic individual gold and so many Para medals, made us all very proud to be British.
To end the year with Barney's double win and Valegro's foot perfect retirement performance...
