All the horses had clears on the XC with a handful of time faults. Flash (pictured) had his first Novice SJ clear, travelled well in the XC and posted a 34.5 dressage. Archie jumped a double clear. He is taking me more across the fences in the XC and not jumping so high which is good. He was lazy in the dressage for a 29.5.
Tiger is now generally more settled all round but lost concentration in the SJ to have three down, but jumped a good clear XC after a 31.8 dressage. Stan was running in the ON for his first outing this season. He was more settled than I thought he would be, with a double clear and a dressage of 27. He will run Intermediate next time.
Aston next week with Quin and Bart in the 4* and Mario, Floss and Bambi at Intermediate level.
