Aachen is one of the most amazing venues I have ever been too for an event!
The whole trip was such fun and I am thrilled with Henry’s performance.
We traveled out with Francis Whittington – and had a laugh all the way there.
Henry really tried in the dressage and did his best test to date and it is exciting that there is still some improvement to come. He Showed jumped really well too.
The xc out there was a big test – full on course and plenty of opportunity to have a silly run out but Henry was a star, we had to take an unplanned long route 4 fences from home when my rein slipped so incurred 4.4 time pens…. we finished on the same score as World and European Champion Micheal Jung but finished in 3rd… I am over the moon with his performance. Team GB were just 4.6 pens behind the winning German team.
We travelled home over night on Saturday and then it was back to reality with a bump on Sunday when I fell off one of the youngsters at home!
Team GB is on a roll at the moment – Charlotte Du Jardin did a stunning test at Hartpury as a warm up for the Olympics – you can watch it here
The plan this week is Great Witchingham but with all the continued rain and a bleak forecast I am just keeping everything crossed we get a run!
