The recent rain this week brought an unexpected run today on good ground, after the recent dusty and dry going of the last few weeks. I had three Intermediates out, Floss and Bambi on their second Intermediate run and Bart in the OI.
Floss (pictured) was the star of the day with a clear SJ and XC plus a slowly improving dressage in only his second Intermediate.
Both Bambi and Bart had more settled dressage tests. Bart was unlucky to have a rail down on a big SJ course. It is frustrating that Bambi had three rails down as he feels he will eventually jump clear rounds.
Bambi’s 20 XC was in fact a trip up the step and he was therefore not on line to jump the fence. He otherwise felt good, galloping round.
Bart had a naughty run out – turning left handed after a coloured table, over a right handed corner – he also had a good look at the water but was persuaded to keep going!
Dottie came along for the ride and had a lovely social time – especially mega cuddles from Ros!
