Quick catch up

 

Following some technical issues we are back online! A lot has happened over the past few weeks. We had the biggest boldest Badminton we have seen in years. Despite a disappointing 20 penalties XC I felt that TS Jamaimo showed an enormous amount of heart and stamina around the toughest track he has ever faced in heavy going (we are not sure he had actually ever run in mud before, having come from Australia!).

We have been out competing with the younger horses in our team and are thrilled with how they are progressing this season. Santano II picked up a win in the Novice at Tweseldown and Dutch Man Retto won the Novice at Salperton. We went to the first event run by Farley Hall and cannot praise them enough for the great job they have done on the cross country course.

We have also had Luhmuhlen come and go. Things didn’t quite go our way and after a beautiful dressage test and three quarters of an amazing cross country round Tempranillo and I parted company at the apex in the water. Such is the sport!

The moment…

 

… re-living the moment

 

 

We have an exciting few months ahead with Graf Liberty heading to Aachen and TS Jamaimo and Graf Liberty selected on the Australian WEG squad.
