She jumped her little socks off, all the tough skinnies and tight lines did not phase her she was brilliant. Lady jumped up and down steps, into and out of water, skinny brushes, arrowheads, planks, corners and fences on angles I was so pleased with how bold and direct she was to say she hadn't seen or ever practised anything like it! I must admit though the 1m class (same class Candy did!) was way to much for her at this stage but she gave it her best shot to complete but we just took our time and lets face it she doesn't really stand much of a chance against Candy and the rest of the eventers that were out that day including Lauren Shannon and Ros Canter!
Candy really was a total super star winning the biggest class of the day, the Intermediate with near on 50 competitors. She jumped a very quick double clear in a time of 109, no one could catch her and it didn't even feel fast (candy fast-come on!! That would be a fine thing!) She certainly covers ground that's all I can say! 2nd place was on 112 seconds!
I had entered Candy into the Open 1.10m class which was causing so much trouble, that much in fact no one jumped it double clear! Candy had a pole in the first round but still flew round in 111 seconds to come 4th. We were so excited to hear that we had qualified for the final in August for both classes!!
If I get chance I will take Lady back to give her a real shot in the 75cm and 85cm! Next stop Area Eventing this weekend, and I am pleased to tell you Candy made it into the first team so fingers crossed the weather dries up!!
