Haras du Pin

The trip out to France was fun and we arrived to find the venue bathed in sun shine – toping up the tan was the order of the day – happy days
Obos Cooley was absolutely AMAZING during the week – he took the step up all in his stride. A great test was followed by a fab xc…. Clear inside the time! He felt like a pro on the xc and will be very flash soon. A brilliant clear show jumping saw us finish 3rd in a really competitive class

We decided not to run Brookfield Cult King xc as he was not in a competitive position and the ground was firm enough!

Steve was very excited in his dressage and the tension resulted in a moderate score! The xc was huge and sadly Super Steve was too onward bound at the water and we had an annoying run out – he was amazing apart from that and I am so cross with myself.   He jumped a super clear round in the show jumping – magic.

We dashed home as fast as we could –  I am off to Wellington today – by all reports it is a great new addition to the event season.

It is weird not having a horse for Burghley this year but I wish all those going a great round! I will be at Goring over the weekend – winning points and prizes I hope!

Sadly Henry has sustained a minor injury during the training for Blenheim and I have withdrawn him – it is only a minor injury and we hope he will be back in top form for Badminton next year – we will miss him this autumn but his long term future is important

Until next week
