Barbury is a great event

Well what a great two days I’ve had! Ken (Kinordy Rivaldo) finished 6th in the Open Novice, he didn’t do as good a test as he can normally do but I sure had fun riding him around the amazing 1* course. He show jumped great and was just a pleasure to ride. I was a little disheartened yesterday after Underdisscussion did a great dressage test in the wind and rain, because I expected to see him further up the leader board. He scored a 45 and the leader (Sam on Real Dancer) was on a 40. I started to doubt myself thinking I could be a bit out classed over here. Today however he showed off with a great clear round in the ShowJumping and moved even further up when he became one of only a few horses to go inside the time on the tough 2** track. We finished 2nd in a class of 110 horses. So I am extremely happy with him.
Unfortunately England will have to wait to feel the wrath of Haruzac, as I had to withdraw him from the 3*** class because of a skin irritation that has made his legs inflame. His time will come.
I dragged Lani along today for an outing. She was completely off her tree! And I’m so glad I didn’t have to do dressage in that arena with the 2** XC running. I don’t know how they do it?
