We have just returned from a super weekend at Aston le Walls Horse Trials - which has, as always, offered perfect conditions for great training runs of all horses. Dressage and Showjumping arenas on fantastic surfaces make all the difference - especially in the wet weather!
Our "Mr. Perfect" Rutherglen started the weekend off with a win in his Advanced section - he showed his class in all three phases to finish with a super double clear. I am very much looking forward to our next events coming up - the British Open at Gatcombe Park in August as well as his season highlight, the CCI4* Burghley in September.
Cheeky Calimbo and The Blue Frontier were both "picture perfect" in all three phases adding another two double clear rounds - which resulted in 2nd place for Cheeky and what would have been 3rd for The Blue Frontier - if I hadn´t jumped the wrong last fence on the cross country!!
Although a very annoying mistake I couldn´t be happier with the horses performances!
