CHRIS BURTON EVENTING

Back to Back

Up early for another competition. This time back to Gatcombe Park for an Open Intermediate with Under Discussion “Mel”, Haruzac “Harry”, JB Calypso “Calypso”. This place, set in a beautiful valley located in the Cotswolds, is breathtaking and hard to describe. And it was very nice of Anne to have us back. She seems a pretty good cheese that one.

If you are wanting to impress in the dressage arena, these are the three horses you want to have. And impress they did with all of them doing fantastic tests.

This one day event is known to riders as the ‘Little Gatcombe’. Where as the show in August where Barry and Calypso cleaned up is known as ‘Big Gatcombe’. Incredible to think that this property holds two cross-country courses ranging from 1 star to 3 star. The intermediate course I rode around today was very smooth flowing, excellently built, and perfect for preparing them for their three-day events coming up.
