The second time I was much more confident with the help of Sue Colley. It was a long and twisty course with lots testing fences but I was up for the challenge.
Lady on the other hand has been going from strength to strength jumping consistent double clears. She has been placed in the top 10 for the last 4 times and is definitely ready to step it up a level. Our last BE90 outing was Draycott House and the dressage went beautifully, she felt much more balanced to score a competitive 34. Another clear show jumping again lifted us higher up the placings, but with a very annoying hesitation and quick decision from the steward we picked up 20 penalties, which in my eyes she didn’t really deserve. Nonetheless it was a great round and I still feel she is ready to have ago at BE100.
In the meantime we are off to stay with Fox Covert Horses and have some training from Holly Gillott as well as attending some BSJA which I am really looking forward to.
After what has happened this month it has made me such more determined to succeed and even more excited at the good parts I have achieved and felt, like the competitive dressage and the clears show-jumping, which will hopefully when everything comes together on the day really put us up there on the leader board where we need to be.
