At least they were able to channel their extra energy into focussed performance, with Tiny coming 2nd in the British Novice by a small margin, and Leo winning the Discovery. They both jumped really nice rhythmical rounds in the next height up (Discovery and Newcomers), but just had a pole :/ Need to readjust to swapping between 14.2h and 16.3h again! The strides are pretty different!
We've been doing a lot of turn and angle practise recently and I was really keen to not get them into the ring and buzz them up, so they achieved these results with a pretty laid back canter, just very very tight turns and short approaches to fences.
Very very pleased with both and will be out jumping bigger tracks next time.
