Aston Day Two

It was great to have Sparkles out today at Aston – it’s been a while since I had the feeling of galloping him around an event. What a class horse he is.

Nigel has worked hard on the ground, and for such hot days he has again produced as good a ground as possible in the conditions. The intermediate cross country was a good test, with a variety and fences you can ride at, a perfect start to setting Sparkles up for bigger things.

It seemed strange going to an event with just one horse, but it was good to get a run under his belt and hopefully we will get a few more runs  before  the season ends. He did a smart test and then gave me a good ride, despite his excitement in the jumping phases.

Cheers,

Bill
