So we popped along to Aston Le Walls tonight for a wee bit of showjumping. I planned to do the 95 and the 1m but when we got there they were just finishing off the first class and I didnt want to hang around all night so I entered the 90&95. There were hardly anyone there and in the 80 only 2 competitors.
Anywho, he was super excitable having not been ridden all week plus he had a massage on Tuesday and we’d started him on a competition mix so I had plenty of horse under me! He pinged around the 90 not touching a single pole even when we got in pretty deep to 2 of them- watching back on the video I don’t know how he managed to get his legs out the way on one of them!
Second clear round completed! Super pleased. There were only 3 in the class and I left before I heard whether I was 2nd or 3rd(last!!). I decided I couldn’t be bothered hanging around to wait for the last competitor who was faffing around so we withdrew from the 95 and called it a night- he has got a busy day on Sunday so reserving the energy.
We then rounded off the great evening with fish n chips before watching Love Island!!
Tomorrow we volunteer at Offchurch at the BE ODE which should give us a good insight into how the courses are jumping before the husband competes on the Sunday.
Will no doubt be back tomorrow with some randomness about the volunteering so until then,
