July - Things are kicking off
It has been great the be back out competing, which started with a couple of BS shows and some great results of horses being on great form, and then two super BE events at Tweseldown and Aston le walls, then Swalcliffe unaffiliated.
This time with Suzanne Doggettvery fresh HALLTOWN HARLEY. A lovely test for 30.9 but he felt the need to go so fast SJ he had a rare fence down, then zoomed around the XC, with me telling him to slow down and Harley saying I was wrong. 1.6 time faults to finish a respectable 12th. Molly Fisher, Lucy Fleming and Nicky Cooper UPPERCOURT COOLEY a lovely 26 dressage and a faultless double clear inside the time to finish 3rd!! Only out 3rd event today so a great confidence run!!
A huge thank you to Tweseldown and all the BE volunteers for holding and running the event and of course to my owner’s, sponsors and grooms! Chloe Howson having the boys looking beautiful and Anya Thursby helping my amazing girl Sara Bech Eventing with a lovely clear in the OI!!
