The weather was getting considerably worse. It was now hailing for Puzzle. She was very forward and eager in the dressage but came out with 35 which was respectable I thought and put is in a good place going into Show Jumping. Again everyone was slipping and slidding all over the place with many withdrawing. Puzzle did not want to go home she had come all this way and couldn't wait for her XC run I could tell! She flew round jumping clear but very cocky! Seems all the training from Holly has certainly paid off! We cantered this time back to the trailer quick change and cantered back down! Puzzle is only 11 but by goodness she know her job better than anyone I know. She picked up a couple of time faults due to the ground, but who cared in those conditions! To get round whilst it was snowing and we both couldn't see the fence until a few strides away was an achievement! She even came back to trot for the most humongous drop we had both ever tackled and just popped off no problems! It felt like we were dropping off the leaf pitt at Burghley haha!! So Puzzle jumped double clear to pick up 3rd place in the Open eventing league.
Next stop is Somerford Park with Candy in the BE100 & Puzzle in the Novice.
