Go hard or go home…

It’s taken a LARGE G & T before I could bring myself to writing… character building International day, one day horses were on it! My team of Smurfs were a great support, giving me a kick when I was sad, and feeding me to keep me going!! 

Tiny finished 11th, after a more settled dressage (though still not quite ‘there’). Smokie had a lovely- foot perfect- romp round the xc after a couple of mistakes dressage & I had a rail sj.

Foxy found the new heightened atmosphere too much in the wind- noisy flappy flags etc! So we called it a day, and will wait to try again at Burnham. 

Pete… Pete… Pete… so close: “Go hard or Go home”… after lying in the top 10 overnight after dressage, with a spanking good test, he continued to feel Mr Cool, Calm, Collected & Classy… foot perfect SJ, best ever round… and I’d say the same about the xc, felt a million dollars… til I tried to be clever, with a horse who is far more clever than I give him credit for! He couldn’t possibly jump the angle and distance I thought I was helping him with- but only got 4 time penalties with a circle!! 🙈 That would have been good enough for 4th place… GUTTED 😪 I suppose when you’re chasing the wins, you open yourself up to mistakes… God this horse is going to be one hell of a competitor when we get our acts together!!! 🙄 🦄😍

    I have ridden horses all my life. I have relocated my yard, to Vale View Equestrian, with facilities that are out of this world for producing my lovely horses. I am very excited about having these resources at my fingertips, and the results are shining through right across the board, showing my horses are settled, happy, and now able to work every aspect of their competition needs!
