It was then on to the cross country and they went brilliantly – I couldn’t have asked for more. It was a strong track and caused lots of trouble but both went superbly, jumping confident clears around the track – I was thrilled! Alfie hasn’t run much this year driven by endless cancellations and rerouting and so I was over the moon with how he ate up the course, he is a cross country machine. Womble was doing only his second advanced track and first 3 star and I couldn’t have asked for more. He went round so sweetly and confidently – I took him long at a couple of fences including the second water which had caused endless trouble even for experience four star horses. I was again thrilled.
So I drive home a happy man tonight – ahead of turning around to take some of the younger horses to Aston tomorrow for an unaffiliated event.
