After a busy few weeks travelling away it was really lovely to get out eventing with two of our lovely young horses. Brenda Watson and my own CLASS SPEC (Specs) and Kirsty and Mark Ryan’s MONBEG ALCATRAZ (Dave) both in the BE100.

Specs got off to a cracking start with a 26 dressage to lead his section. Unfortunately he rolled a very unlucky pole to pick up 4 faults but gave me another fantastic ride cross-country to finish in 3rd place.

Dave was certainly making the most of being a little fresh and added some extra moves in the dressage – he jumped very well in the show-jumping in parts but was rather unruly in others and then picked up 20 penalties for spooking at the water on the cross-country … overall a mixed day with him with a school report reading “could do better!”

Next stop for these two is Great Witchingham next weekend.
