We are back home now for the next few weeks after a hectic three day event schedule, consisting of some very tight turn arounds in time.
Houghton was educational for all four horses competing and River Warrior, Monbeg Maximus, Dakotah VII and OBOS Colombus will have come on a lot for it. It was then on to Tattersalls across the Irish Sea with Prince Mayo and new ride The Corn Crake to compete in the CCI* and CCI***. I hadn't done a three star for four years, so to finish in the Top 20 with Prince having had a super clear XC I was delighted. The Corn Crake also took the win in the one star, finishing on his awesome dressage score of 28. Very excited about the future!
It was then onto Bramham with DHI Paparazzi for his first CCI***. He stormed around the course, although a little strong at times which we can work on, and I hope we will both come on together having learned a lot from the experience.
We have some one day events now with the young horses before a few steady runs with the big boys, setting them up for the three days at the back end of the season.
