“Oh Hail Lady… It was Lady’s time to go head to head against the big girls and boys in a BE90 section as a 5 year old. We had entered Bradwall with it not being too far away from us, and other than doing our show jumping round
in a freak weather hail storm we had a great day!
Lady warmed up for dressage a little bit sluggish to say the least, but after a few pony club kicks she was
soon taking me forward and down the centre line extremely straight for a baby! Her test felt incredible and
I could feel how much she has grown up in a year. We were all delighted to hear over the tannoy that she
had scored a 30.5.
The show jumping was nice, a little twisty but nothing she couldn’t tackle. It would have been a much
nicer round if the heavens hadn’t opened for our round, with hail stones going in my eyes and her ears!
Luckily it didn’t put her off and she came out with a clear round.
Still on our dressage score we warmed up for cross country. The wait was a little longer than expected and
Lady was definitely getting fed up! The course looked nice to me (probably because I have just got used
to seeing huge Novice fences!) so I rode the course extremely positive. Lady was babyish in places but her
boldness came through securing another clear XC and inside the time for a well-deserved 6th place.
The winning score was only 1.5 penalties different from mine so you can see how close it was.
Lady now has a few weeks off from BE due to me focusing on work, and Candy with Chatsworth just
around the corner.
