Ruby, my lovely 5 year old was the most well behaved at Chilham in the BE80 where she did a lovely 31 dressage and double clear in the time to finish 3rd! what a star! Treasure doing her first competition in 6 weeks wasn't as well behaved as I hoped, she was in the BE100 open (yes, she is an intermediate horse!) she did a good dressage of 30, 1 pole SJ but unfortunately still did her napping xc but we did make a break through and she did complete (highs and lows of having an Accondy horse!). Jacqs was the worst behaved of the lot doing an excitable dressage (but she did warm up calmly!), 1 pole SJ and had a mare strop on the XC!
It was then on to Borde Hill 2 weeks later where it was a very busy day with 3 horses but luckily I had a friend with me to be groom. Treasure was the best of the lot (yay!) she was in the open novice and did a 29 dressage, 2 poles SJ and went clear xc to finish 6th. I am so glad she behaved, not just because I was really hoping I had got her back on track but because she was the last horse to go at 6.45pm and everyone wanted to go home!! Ruby in the BE90 did a nice test but dispointed with a score of 38, she then had 2 poles SJ but I was pleased as it chucked it down during our round and she was not impressed! She then went on to a lovely clear XC. Jacqs wasn't as well behaved as the others but she did complete her BE100 and got her through all her strops across country, she did do a lovely clear SJ though and one of her better dressage tests. Overall a very long day setting off at 5.30am and returning home at 10.40pm but a good day and I was pleased with all the horses.
Next up Firle with Ruby and Jacqs and then off to Keysoe with Treasure.
