Yet again Princess Lulu rose to the occasion and was hoof perfect in the CCI3*S. Owned by Nicky Cooper, Suzanne Doggett and Lucy Fleming. She produced a super test to score 29 and lay in the top 6 out of 100 competitors after dressage, she then went on to SJ clear in the tough Cornbury SJ arena and really showed her class. Next was XC and a similar course to last year, but she jumped a superb clear easily inside the time, completing on her dressage score she finished 3rd in a full and competitive international field.
Two special 5-year-olds, Crunchie and Ozzie both owned by Molly Fisher and Lucy Fleming, headed off to West Wilts for the BE100 - both completing on their dressage tests.Crunchie was such a good boy in the dressage and scored 28.8 which ultimately resulted in a 2nd place finish!Ozzie had few green moments in dressage but jumped a super confident double clear to finish just outside of the placings.
The Nexgen young horse series has been great for educating Crunchie, Oz and Ozzie this year. It has given them lots of educational opportunities - from competing in different arenas to competing in the main arena at Barbury.The final took us to Hickstead and their stunning all-weather cross-country where Crunchie and Ozzie continued their education. Both boys were extremely well behaved but finished outside of the placings.They both have an exceptionally bright future ahead of them and we're already excited for next season!
