The course at Withington was big but rode well as always. The ground held up well for the second day and had a nice cut in it so I was able to move them on up the hill at the back of the course which was a good bit of fitness work for them ahead of their three day runs.
The show jumping was a frustrating day at the office but thankfully didn’t cost me a win on either horse. Alfie’s rail was totally my fault, the last fence, making up too much ground
on a three stride related line to the last fence. Womble had two fences, oxers behind because I was experimenting still with how to best ride him in this phase, Anyway a good day but still much to do and I am looking forward to the next completion with both horses.
The next event is Moreton Morrell with Silver, Dotty and Lenny and then a weekend of training ahead of the upcoming three day events at Saumur and Tatts.
