Pau – Hip Dressage

Bill Levett It was great to have a nice test on Hip today and be up with the leading¬†dressage scores. He was in the lead until lunchtime today but has now¬†dropped back to 7th but I’m still thrilled with him. And also pleased to get¬†three 9s for my riding!

Hip tried really hard and did some of the best work¬†he’s done in the ring and that’s all you can ask for. I’ve had a good¬†feeling about how he’s been working on the flat over the last few days so¬†I’m really pleased for the horse and also his loyal owners the Leggetts – who¬†have been patient and long term supporters of Team Levett.

There are three out in front in the 30s but after that we are still pretty¬†closely bunched and I’m not far off the pace in 7th. There is rain forecast¬†tonight so let’s hope not too much comes. The course should suit Hip but we¬†will have to both be on our game to go clear and close to the time.

However for now we should reflect that the first phase has gone well and I will just be taking one day at a time.

Until tomorrow,
