In order to celebrate the news that TS Jamaimo had been selected on the Australian team at the World Equestrian Games in August Bek and I signed up to participate in Dry July, along with a few other fellow Australian Eventers.
Dry July is an Australian based charity event involving giving up alcohol for the month in order to raise funds for adults living with cancer. If you would like to support this fantastic cause, donating to our team ‘Aussie Eventers’ is really easy via this link https://au.dryjuly.com/team/aussieeventers
The abstinence didn’t seem to weigh in our favour at Aachen. Graf Liberty did one of his best dressage tests to date scoring a 39 and show jumped in the electric Aachen main arena for an unlucky one down. Unfortunately the next morning he showed signs of a virus and we had to withdraw before XC. It is always a disappointing decision to have to make but it was an easy one. He is such a lovely young horse who will have plenty of big shows ahead of him. A big thanks to the Graf Liberty Syndicate for all your support.
We have a very busy few months ahead so hopefully some better luck is headed our way.
