Sadly I think the weather is about to change for the worst in the next couple of days.
Hip continues to be very chirpy and will not do his dressage until Friday. I walked both courses today and there is a lot to do with plenty of turns and a couple of very decent water complexes, the first coming very early, and forward turning distances. The 4 star is about 11 min but all flat with about 7 fences positioned on the top of banks. I think it will be a real test on cross country day, as it should be at four star. The event seems to have progressed hugely since when I was here with Clancy years ago, they’ve done a huge amount with the ground and development of the fences and infrastructure.
