Bill LevettToday saw us head to Stonar at lunchtime with just 1 horse. Lenny was doing another BE100 5YO qualifier. The courses aren’t always that big at Stonar but there are always a few educational combinations.

Lenny did quite a competitive dressage, but unfortunately had the last fence in the show jumping. Cross country he was quite relaxed and seemed to take that all in his stride. Like I’ve said before my favourite way to produce a young horse is with not much pressure or expectations. This is the way Lenny is evolving over the course of the season.

Over the weekend we had lovely ground at Salperton but you get the sense that if we have a few dry weeks the ground will change very quickly.

Now it’s back to LCS for a few hours turn around before heading out to Aachen in Germany. It will be like going from one extreme to the other with Aachen having a huge atmosphere and all the Australian management in attendance. Let’s hope Silks and I put our best foot forward.
