“Last weekend we took Edd (Nightshade) to his first ever ODE! Before then he had never done a dressage test on grass, never jumped a course of show jumps on grass (he had only ever jumped a handful of courses), and had never done a cross country course! He didn’t put a foot wrong and seemed to really enjoy it!
We had a 24 dressage, just one down showjumping, and then a clear cross country! We did get lots of XC time faults because he was really scared of the jump judges so we stopped in the middle of the field a few times and he was a bit confused about why we were cantering across the field. But as you can see from the pictures he loved it! He has been on the Alphabute for quite a few months now and we can really see the difference and he has been going better and better every competition!”
