Local success at Purston

7 horses competing at the lovely Purston Manor over the two days - a local one for us and the horses did the team proud.

With new ride Shannondale Holly, having her first run before being sold on behalf of owners  Mrs Nicki Kavanagh and Clare Kavanagh. She did a very smart dressage for 26.3, followed by a great double clear inside the time to finish 4th in a competitive BE100 section.
Danetime Panther just keeps on getting better, he was competing in the BE100 / ROR class. After an 18.8 dressage, just one very unlucky pole and a clear XC he finished just outside of the placings but he did win best of the ROR and won a fairly impressive trophy.

Lastly on the first day of competition we had Cruise On Inny in the BE100 plus, his first attempt at a novice dressage scoring 28.8, unfortunately tapped a couple of poles but flew XC inside the time to finish 10th in his section.

Back home to re pack ready for sunday with Foxy Lady, Undalgo De Windsor in the Novice  and CVS Indian Summer in the NRF final.

Foxy Lady still only having her 3rd run with Ginny, felt great she did a lovely test for 25.5 certainly well up there after this phase, she then went on to do a brilliant double clear adding just a couple of time to finish 3rd in her section- so well deserved as she tried so hard!
Undalgo De Windsor, did an accurate test for 28 then his best ever SJ round making it all feel very easy, then XC the more annoying rider error to date - i over collected him and went straight past a corner - he was oblivious to this - but certainly one of those 'what could have been' moments!

Lastly CVS Indian summer did a 29 dressage - not one of her best but she made the step up to an intermediate test pretty well, she then had an unlucky rail SJ and zoomed XC feeling so confident and ready to make the next step up!


Barbury Castle

A quiet day with just Creeslough in the ROR Championships and About time Too in the Novice. The lovely venue at Barbury offered plenty of questions and challenges!

About time Too did a very smart test of 27, he then followed this up with a perfect double clear to finish 3rd in his competitive section - he too is ready for the next level up so watch this space!

Cresslough loves Barbury and he remembers his racing days.. well certainly in the dressage! He worked in beautifully but got a little tight in his test reflecting in his mark of 36.  A couple of additional flying changes made it more entertaining for the judge! 
Show Jumping went well, just knocking one rail which was very unlucky, he then flew round the XC making it all feel very easy to come home and place 7th.
