Show jumping caused lots of problems with only 8 clears in the section and Lady was one of them. That is her 4th clear show jumping in a row! She really does know her job now and gives it 110% in that ring for me. We set out for cross country knowing the time was tight. She answered all the questions and was flying round, fence 9ab & B caught me out with how sharp the turn was. I had a big jump over fence 9ab so had to put the hand brake on and do a different line to fence B. Lady bless her clocked the fence and popped it from a stand still, It was always in my mind when I went for fence B not to cross my tracks so did a squiggle to avoid this, she flew round the rest of the course and I was really happy with how she went. We were waiting for prize giving as was in 8th place, however last minute my score was changed to a 20 pens which we quickly queried and asked why. The fence judge had said I crossed my tracks and unfortunately the video mum had was ''inconclusive' to prove I hadn't. This was a real shame but things happen so quickly and we paid the price!
We have another busy weekend coming up with Lady competing in the PC area ODE qualifier at Buckminster, and Annie in the 100 at Frickley which is the last event before Gatcombe! We have been working hard on the dressage test which is definitely a step up to what I have been used to doing in Novice tests. I am really looking forward to the jumping phases and Lady has been flying round Novice so will be nice to have a new challenge for the both of us.
