Christine and I had a separate weekend as Jane had a Dressage competition on in Essex and Christine was having a “Girlie” weekend. As the competition was early Saturday morning I travelled up Friday with Sooty after we had a nice walk along the cliff top at Barton on Sea with Sooty & Bella and then finished with a cream tea, “lovely jubbly”
Up early Saturday morning as we had to have both horses loaded and ready to go at 0715hrs, ouch!!!!!!! Not being used to these early starts anymore, it was a shock. We arrived at the competition centre with sufficient time to get “Herbie” or using his posh name, “Urban Knight” ready and warmed up for his first class at 0835. Bearing in mind it was only Herbie’s second proper competition, he did reasonably well, in fact his score was good enough to give him second place, well done Jane and Herbie, and after all he is still only a very young horse. Unfortunately his next class wasn’t quite so good, he had had enough, oh well he can only get better.
Next up was Sky, this is one of the horses Jane & Dave bred and again it was only Sky’s second outing, unfortunately on this occasion Sky had a mind of her own; but as I said about Herbie, she is also a very young horse.
The earliest major they can now plan for will have to be the 2016 Olympics being held in Rio De Jareiro, we will have to start saving!!!!!
Christine:- I had a lovely quiet morning, showered, and then read some of my book, after lunch Michelle and Lucy came over, and we walked with Bella to Boscombe, we stopped for tea, but sadly after 30 minutes we were still waiting, so we gave up, and walked out, walked back to the Hotel and had a lovely cuppa there, and Michelle left with Lucy. On Sunday Trace came over, we had a lovely evening, we decided on a weightwatchers meal instead of going out, opened the wine, and off we went, unfortunately the biscuits came out as well, so bang goes the diet again, still we had a good night catching up. Next morning we walked over Hengistbury, and although it was bitterly cold it was brilliant, lovely to see you again Trace. Thanks for coming over.
