CHRIS BURTON EVENTING

Purston manor

Sorry I have taken so long to post about my first competition. I have been up to see the test event at Greenwich. Wow it is a very exciting place. Situated right in the city, it does remind me of Adelaide 3 day event. The course twists and winds its way through the park lands with the city sky line as the back drop. The big difference is a very very steep hill in the middle of it. London horses will have to be very fast and very fit!
Purston went as well as I could of wished my first event to go. Mel and Ken were great, I think they realized the importance of making a good impression on their new rivals. They were in the open novice and were 1st and 2nd in the dressage. Ken just jogged a bit in the walk but other wise a good test for a 29. Mel got the lowest score of the day with a 20, and they both show jumped great so I decided to stop showing off and took them both slowly on cross country. All in all it was a great event and very exciting to be competing in such a different scene.
