Sooty went very well, rolling one pole in the show jumping and jumping clear cross country. He was very good on his lines cross country, he’s a very genuine horse with a lovely big gallop stride. We secured his CIC2star qualification so he can now go to Houghton to do the CCI 2 star. So that’s all good.
Coco, Ricky and Hipp all show jumped next in the CIC 3 star and we had a bout of four faultitess! They all went well and I felt jumped really well out of what were difficult ground conditions so I was pleased, although it was frustrating to have the rails.
Alfie was doing his first advanced and tried very hard in the dressage scoring 35 and then also had a good show jump round which ironically seemed to go up from the 3 star to the advanced! He then was a top cross country, jumping a lovely clear round and securing his qualification. So a good day at the office.
