May 2010: Congratulations to Chief Glossy Mary on a thrilling Badminton and superb 4th place on Imperial Cavalier. Surely this must set her up nicely in the selectors' eyes for the WEG!

March 2010: Met up with Mary and Jodie at Tweseldown to provide new supplies of the wonder Gloss! 2nd competition of the season so far, and a mixed day "at the office".... 14th in her section on King's Mistress - due to a show jump down, Mary hacked round the x-country; 2nd on Emily's horse King Joules; Fernhill Urco was quite jolly in the dressage (I can tell you it was ABSOLUTELY BITTERLY COLD at Tweseldown that day!), and dropped one pole in the show jumping and set off going well x-country but unfortunately took the water jump drop a little too steeply and dropped poor Mary in the freezing water! Not a nice day to get wet... However the most important thing was that horse & rider were unscathed.

I managed to get a few pictures - go the Mary's picture gallery to have a look! Oh, and here is one of a very nice work experience girl that Mary and Jodie brought with them putting Grand Prix Leather Gloss to good use...!

Tack gets cleaned at the competition!

July 2009 :To start us off, here are a few pictures taken at Tweseldown recently when we (the Sorcerer's Apprentice and I) had the pleasure of meeting up with Mary and some of her team including her lovely head girl, Jodie Summers. By a fortuitous chance it was also the day Mary heard that she was selected for the GB team for the Europeans, both as a team member and one of the reserves!
One of the horses Mary was riding was King Albert, pictured with her here, and by sheer chance I managed to get a few half decent pictures of his show jumping round - his first Intermediate. See Mary's picture gallery for more pictures of the day.....

Jodie told me she is really pleased to be using the Grand Prix Leather Gloss all the time now -

"I like the way you just apply it and leave it to do the work. You get soft and supple leather, and the shine is an extra bonus - all with minimum effort! Just look at King Albert's tack!
It certainly makes my life easier!"

Mary King withdrawn from Senior Eventing Squad

"Unfortunately Mr & Mrs E Daviesí and Janette Chinnís, Imperial Cavalier ridden by Mary King, has been withdrawn from the forthcoming Senior European Championships at Fontainebleau in France (23-27 September 2009). Imperial Cavalier has suffered a slight setback and with WEG 2010 and London 2012 in mind, it was felt it was not in his best interests to risk running him this year." Source: British Eventing

Mary has a new DVD just out (May 2009)

'Enjoying Cross Country' in the "Enjoying..." series by Equestrian Vision: Mary King's positive riding has been a feature of international cross country riding for many years and in this programme the overriding theme is positive thinking. A number of different types of fences and combinations are jumped and this DVD is relevant to anyone wishing to ride across country, whether it is at an event or in the hunting field. Over an hour's viewing!

You can find it at Amazon if you want to buy on line.

Don't forget, Grand Prix Leather Gloss is not just a saddle soap - in one application it does the work of up to three conventional leather care products - and at half the cost!
