Well I haven’t managed to post many reports of late as we have been absolutely manic at the yard, which is always good.
January and early February saw a rather annoying interruption to our events due to the snow and icy conditions so we were unable to do a great deal.
Rolex and I have been having great form over recent weeks, with 5 consecutive wins under his belt and consistent scores of plus 70%, we have now qualified for the Summer Regional Championships at Prelim again, however our final aim is much higher. We have started our competitive riding at Novice level and we secured a confident win on 70% gaining us 7 points towards the summers at novice also.
Then came the regionals, Rolex and I have only been competing together at BD for less than 12 months so just to be there felt an achievement for us both, he took the whole atmosphere in his stride and coped remarkably well, however a huge rider error from myself allowing him to jog in the free walk cost us greatly. We finished 16th, without this error he would of undoubtedly made the top 10 so a little heart wrenching. But all in all for our first regionals I cannot complain, onto the summers now.
Keep checking in on our events calendar for everything we have going on.
