Burghley – Dressage

Bill Levett Well the first day of dressage is over and Hipp is on a 49.8. He is not a long way off the pace as the leaders are on 45, and he’s currently lying in 8th place. As long as the judges remain consistent tomorrow we should still not be out of the competition.

The wind was pretty strong today in and around the arena, and Hipp is such a sensitive soul that there were moments where he got tense in the test and we lost a few marks which was a shame. Much of the test was nice but the few mistakes cost me dear and so I was a bit disappointed, but I need to focus on Saturday’s cross country now and after a few hours of reflection I feel I should be pretty pleased with the test (in parts!)
