My friend Rosie volunteered to help out and took Boy round for me. She did the Novice, jumping a fab round just 1.87 seconds over the optimum time, just picking up some faults. They then flew round the cross country giving Rosie a real buzz an going clear finishing middle of the 43 starters. I always find it difficult to gauge the optimum times for SJ as I always take my time aiming for clear instead of quickness! Plus at Epworth they only give you the speed and distance of the round which I don't have a clue how to change into time!
Then it was Candy's turn.. I entered her into the Intermediate as she is going to Stafford 1st April doing the BE90. She had a fantastic clear round SJ just a few wobbly lines into a fence!! She ended up with 4.56 seconds over the optimum... need to work on the speed! We then went XC which made me remember how unfit I was! (trying to practice keeping her forward so she can make the time at Stafford!) Candy finished 13th out of 31 starters. Got some footage for you below.
