Lisa Pilbeam Update – July 2011

After Corby’s 1st & 2nd at Nurstead and Rackham unfortunately we were eliminated in the showjumping at Eridge – I missed out a jump!

Tango (our home produced stallion) sire of Lady’s foal Tandy, had his first BE event at Eridge.  He had a great dressage (26.5) the best in his section, but in the showjumping he had 3 down, he was jumping a bit flat unfortunately and seems to respect the bigger fences better!

I’ve had a jumping lesson with him this week and have picked up some tips to help out, as he tends to lift his head and tank towards the fence a few strides out.

He had one run out XC too which was a bit of a cheeky run out – still, I’m expecting improvement for his next event!  I’m taking him to Borde Hill at the weekend for the Riding Club Team Horse Trials.

My new ride Cinderbanks is an ex-racehorse and she came 5th at Eridge (she was 2nd placed ex-racehorse – they combined a section).  I’m really pleased with how she is going, I’d only ridden her a couple of times before Rackham but she really went nicely at Eridge and I’m competing her at Brightling too.


Holly and Lady are entered for Tweseldown on Monday, and Lady,Corbyand Tango will also be going to Brightling.
