Dear Avril, 

 How are you all? We have continued our novice Le Trec with great joy having only started in January this year! We have been doing the winter indoor series for 2015 -2016, we started late in the series, but caught up, and overall were 3rd in the Trec South West Newcomers series, and 8th in Trec GB Newcomers, so big rosettes for Bluebell. 

We have continued with various summer events all very happily in lovely places like Dartmoor, the Mendips and the Blackdown hills. Bluebell and I went to summer Trec camp for 5 days and learnt a lot, including detailed orienteering by bearings alone. We then did a pairs event and came first!!! 

I have attached some pictures, we are hoping to continue Trec as it suits us both so I will keep you posted. She is such a kind mare, several people have said to me that if I ever wanted to sell her they would love to buy her, but I will not be selling, She will eventually retire here, hopefully not for a few years yet. So a great success for your talents in re-training her. Best wishes to you all, Willa and Bluebell.

Thank you for reading
