“So much has happened since my last update.
Sirius and Raven are back out performing, we’ve been to Smiths Lawn, Hartpury International and West Wilts.
Viccie Parfitt’s stallion Friendly Game did an epic job at Hartpury. He was slightly spooky in the dressage so we were sat in the middle of the field, I took him for a steady clear XC and he jumped out of his socks! Riggs warmed up beautifully for the dressage but turned into a shaking wimp at the first sign of a flower pot in the arena – gutted. I only took him to fence 7 in the XC as the ground wasn’t great but he bounded around and was furious when I said it was time to return to his box.
Everyone went brilliantly at West Wilts, and little Tadpole even managed a second place in the BE100.
We are now closing down on Burghley Horse Trials in September. The SuperCalm Instants and my smart Global Herbs rug is packed and ready to go. Counting down – this time in two weeks everything I’ve aimed for this year will be over… lets hope it’s the result I dream of!”
