But back to today, and the main event has been Alfie’s dressage test. In short he tried very hard for me and scored a 44.0 in his first four star test. He made a couple of expensive mistakes, jogging in the free walk and getting a bit stuck in a couple of changes but overall he tried very hard for me and I’ve learnt a lot about him for the future. The exciting thing about him is there is much more to come.
So overall I’m very pleased with a 44.0 which should leave us in the top 20 at the end of the dressage – and as many have said before me, I don’t think this will be a dressage competition.
I’m off to walk the course again and do a dance for the rain to stay away and the sun to shine.
