Eventing has started!!

B and I started with an unaffiliated at Moreton and posted our best ever dressage score which was very pleasing!  My whole plan for the show jumping and cross country was to school round as we’d had a few tricky sj rounds of late and not had a xc round at all!

So with a couple of poles & time faults sj which I was pleased with as I rode better than I had been and a storming clear round xc albeit a little slow, a good result non the less.

Our first BE took us to Pontispool on a hot Bank Holiday Monday where another really good dressage mark was scored!  The usual ‘Pontispool nerves’ kicked in during the sj warm up and after I’d managed to mess up fence 3 and have a pole down at 4, I actually rode really well!  The xc in true Pontispool style was full of questions but B was as awesome as ever thro all the combinations and a silly error on the approach to a fence towards the end of the course cost me 20 penalties but I would like to think I have learned my lesson!! 

We had a super day and now very much looking forward to the next event in just over a weeks time.
