Bramham Sunday

Super Steve and I have finished 2nd in the CCI*** Under 25 class at Bramham today. He was fab but I am a bit disappointed we did not win – he so deserved too! He felt amazing xc on Saturday – he flew round clear with just 2.8 time pens to lie in 1st place over night He trotted up well and today he was jumping his socks off but unfortunately he went a bit high over an oxer and just came down on the back rail which saw us slip to second… Gutting as he hasn’t had a fence down since July last year!! He will have a bit of a break now and his autumn plan is Pau. The mission of the whole week with Henry was to go clear xc and make sure he was back to his best after a slightly frustrating spring – to say the least He did not like the ground in the show jumping and rolled 2 poles which slipped us down the order after leading the dressage but he flew xc and really felt on a mission – he was awesome – we finished 6th in the really hot section He is heading to Barbury next! I am sorry for the connections of Lead the Way and Jagganth who sadly passed away during the xc on Saturday – it is a tough game and I feel for their riders, owners and grooms Heading south now for the long trip home Laura
