WOW what a week HALLTOWN HARLEY you are a complete star, you could not have done more for me this week. A good test with a couple of errors but plenty of room for improvement. A foot perfect and easy clear XC around a huge and tough CCI*** course which caused a huge amount of trouble, with not only stops but eliminations with only 35 out of 65 completing the course. We kept the pace up all the way, annoyingly picked up 2.8 time faults which were completely my fault!!
Today he came out fresh and well. Harley flew through the trot up and went on to jump a seriously classy clear SJ. He was one of only 4 double clears out of 65 competitors!!!
We finished 12th, winning the Nick Lane Fox Memorial Trophy. He also finished in the top 25% so has achieved his Badminton qualification for next year!!!!
What a complete star. I have so many people to thank, Caroline Powell for producing him, Suzy Doggett for buying him for me to ride. And all my training, Angela, Henriette and Yogi. He’s an amazing horse and I love him to pieces.
Laura had Harley looking beautiful from start to finish, mum and Ben for extra help, and of course Sue, Mimi, Tu and Hannah at home!
