Trigger got another Double clear (his 2nd ever) in the british novie and just missed out on a place coming 5th! he then just had one down in the first round of the discovery. Brook was very very fresh after having 2 weeks off in the snow and not being ridden much since, also not going to a show for three weeks, so thought shewoudl gallop round the discovery and have a pole! i then did the 1.05 open and had a little bit more control but still not enough for a clear. I smanaged to get into the jump off as there were no clears, so all 4 faulters jumped off, this time we did manage a clear and a win!
Trigger got his first ever double clear in the 1.05 open which brook came 2nd in! Brook then did the Blue chip newcomers qualifier and went clear up to the last fence which i turned to tight to and had a stop, but i was really pleased with her and she jumped really well.
trigger did the british novice blue chipp qualifier and juts had two donw, but this was only his 3rd show so he's still learning. i then did the 1.05 acope qualifier on him and had 3 down! think he was a bit tired at this stage with the long journey aswell as the oprevious class, but still pelased with him! Brook had one down in the jump off of the metre open but was quick enough for the top 3! she then went double clear in the 1.05 scope qualifier, came 4th and qualified!
in the 1.05 warm up brook was going really well and very quick until fence 6, wihich i turned quite tight to, also being by the gate she rather fancied going to see her friends more than the jump so decided to throw a major papddy top get eliminated! then the course went up for winter novice qualifier whoichw as a bit of a shock to everybody as it was more like a foxhunter 1.20 than a 1.10! after ebing eliminted in the previous class i thought there was no way at all i was going round or even over the first fence after the naps that also came in the warm up, nearly running over a few pedestrians! I went in with determination to get round which i did even if we did abliterate the second half of the course as she decided to gallop off with me! hopefully next year we can try again to qualify and will be a bit more experonced by then, but i doubt the paddy's will fade!!
