We have had a busy and a bit of a mixed weekend. Liberty Bramwell took Toffee to Vale View Junior BS show yesterday, she was a really good girl, she has not been to a show for a while so she just jumped in the British Novice and Discovery, she jumped a super double clear in the BN and was on to win in the Dis but on the last corner her saddle slipped round and Libby went out the side door, it was our fault as we put in the wrong stud guard for her which was a bit big, you just cant get the staff nowadays!! A big thank you to Joanne Bramwell for taking Toffee for us yesterday as I was busy teaching all day, which was great apart from the freezing weather!
We were back at Vale View today for the arena eventing with Shannon and Chester, Shannon was a superstar again, she popped round doing only one of only four double clears out of a class of nearly thirty, she has a fantastic trainable attitude I really enjoy riding her. Chester show jumped brilliantly but was a bit green on the cross country and didn't really get one of the questions but although eliminated he missed that fence out and jumped everything else brilliantly, we have to remember how green and inexperienced he is, he just needs some more practice.
It was lovely to see Fred who we sold in 2011 at Vale View, he looked fantastic and was well placed in both classes, it is great when you see a pony we started off going so well.
