So on 6th October, we set off to HOYS with Controe…. Last time I competed there was in 2003 when Penwayn Ryan went Supreme ?
7th October gave us a nice early morning ride in International arena at HOYS…. Controe was nice and relaxed so hopefully he’s ready to rock later!
Controe had an annoying fence down in jump off at HOYS but still finished 5th ? He’s been a superstar this year, started the year as a 2* eventer, turned into a show jumper with wins at Hickstead and jumping in International Arenas at Hickstead and HOYS ?
But I am more than thrilled for his owners Karen Bartlett & Margie Gibb
“A great day at Horse of the Year Show today with Controe winning a jumping prize. Thank you Laura Collett and team for what you have done for Conks and for making a dream of two horse mad children (now horse mad grown ups) come true by having a horse compete there.
Also thank you to everyone who sent us supportive and congrats really appreciated.”
THANK YOU for the privilege of riding the bouncy one!!
