It was brilliant to be at Osberton 5YO Championships with the lovely Milchem Sea Breeze. We have had a great season and she has taken to eventing like a duck to water, winning her qualifier at Wellington Horse Trials in great style.
Our dressage felt nice and I was so pleased about how relaxed she stayed with more atmosphere. However, it was one of those days where the judge was not quite on the same page as us and we got a rather average mark, but it took nothing away from the mares performance.
Onto the show-jumping and she jumped a mega clear which was awesome. She also went brilliantly cross country, bar one unfortunate misunderstanding.
However, overall it was such a excellent experience for her and I can’t wait to keep producing her, very exciting for the future!
Friday saw us head to Moreton Morrell, where Meridianway Grafs Pride finished 6th in the Novice and Osberton bound 5YO Milchem Sea Breeze also put in a lovely performance in the BE100 for 9th place.
Yesterday we went to the new event at Cirencester Park, which was a fantastic venue. Horses again where on form with Hazard Z picking up 3rd and I also rode Ultravox for the Hazell family who was 4th. KEC Delicate Girl did a great dressage and show-jumping but just green mistake cross country.
All in all a successful couple days! We are now re-grouping before heading off to Osberton for the Young Horse Championships
Meridianway Grafs Pride was 9th in the Novice, Hazard Z 4th in the 100. KEC Delicate Girl was brilliant but I had a sat nav failure in the form of a missed XC fence () keeping her out of the ribbons!! Piccolo V had a steady run for his first outing since Hartpury jumping a lovely double clear to finish 11th.
Beautiful Meridianway Ramzes Boy was also an absolute star with Alex Whewall Eventing 3rd in only his second novice with a cracking double clear. Well done to Alex and Brutus.
A good days competing at Goring Heath Horse Trials over the weekend with the team.
KEC Delicate Girl had a rail and misunderstanding coming out the water, but was great apart from that in their first BE100.
Milchem Sea Breeze is on a role and continued her good form to finish 2nd in the BE100. Just denied a second win on the trot as finishing score was further from the optimum time (but on the same score!)
Hazard Z was 9th with a double clear in the BE100.
Meridianway Grafs Pride was 7th with double clear in BE105
Meridianway Ramzes Boy was 10th with Alex Whewall Eventing
A busy but successful day, many thanks to all our helpers and the organising team at Goring. Thank you Voltaire Design United Kingdom for the fantastic prizes.
