We had the most amazing day on Saturday (28th Sept) at Stretcholt Equestrian centre. We competed in our first Grand Prix. They say work until your idols become your rivals. Well that became true! It was us and Anna Ross on Delgado in the class, so a very small class. It was so cool to be competing against my trainer/boss. It was far from perfect but we got from the beginning to end and we came away with 66.4%! My goal was to get over 60%, so to get an international qualifying score first time out was amazing!
I can't thank this horse enough. He gives me a lovely feel in the arena and was really with me on Saturday. Onwards and upwards and can't wait until the next one!!
It really takes a village to get us to this point. There are so many people to thank who have helped along the way!
