We had a good day at Barbury with a fantastic double clear in the Open Novice. Unfortunately after a very below par dressage of 31.5, there was no point pushing for time (particularly considering there was a 17 in our section!), so we finished a little outside the top 10 with 6 time faults.
However, it was a good confidence giving run after a disappointing cross country round at Pontispool when in contention after the show jumping, so we were pleased. We are heading to Somerley Park Open Novice and Hartpury International CCI* next, and then will aim to do Gatcombe and Aldon Intermediates.
I am also on the lookout for some new rides to take me to the next level, so please feel free to contact me if you think you may know of a suitable horse.
