It’s been a long five months since the last event of the 2016 Season, there has been a lot of training, a lot of show jumping and dressage competitions, oh and I’m in my final year at University so there is also the small matter of a dissertation to be submitted, but finally, this week saw me start 2017 campaign.
A little earlier than normal, I decided to head further north for my first run of the season, as we headed to Nottinghamshire and the BEDE Ltd run event OASBY, and it was a great day!
CHARLES RR and NANKIN DES RUETTES jumped very pingy DOUBLE CLEARS in the Open Intermediate and Open Novice respectively! Both did slightly excitable dressage tests, but most importantly it was so much fun to be back out on the cross country!
Next weekend I’m off to Aldon with HIGH JINKS IV and LAWA in the Open Novice and CHARLES RR having another Open Intermediate run!
Big thank you Mum and Barbara for grooming for me at Oasby, and Laura for looking after the others at home. Also Thank you to Billie, Chris and India for putting us up for the night!
I’m also pleased to say that Tim Wilkinson, Eventing Images is continuing to sponsor and will be capturing more great photos of me an the horses throughout the 2017 season. Here are a few of my favourites from the weekend. Thank you Tim.
