CHRIS BURTON EVENTING

Osberton 2Star

We’ve started the first of our string of three-day events. Osberton lies in the Sherwood Forest, real Robin Hood country. Kinordy Rivaldo showed exactly why he is a tough little three-day event horse in the British heat. In fact they had the hottest October day on record. At the risk of sounding like a whinging Pom, it was really hot, but Ken loved it. He did a super test and got a string of 8’s for his eye catching canter work to lay in second place after the dressage only to Germany’s sweetheart, Ingrid Klimke, who did a test we all thought should have been in the 30’s

Ken stormed around the 8 minute 50 track and really showed me that he is a 3* horse for the future. Still in second place going into the show jumping we unfortunately had two rails, one of them being unlucky when he just breathed on a breakaway cup. However, we were not the only ones having rails as we finished in 4th place.

Now the  really begins as we make our way home to make a 24 hour turn around to pack up and go to Boekelo, Holland tomorrow night.

I’ll keep ya posted.
