After a systematic start to the season Plan A morphed to B to C and then folded up and went to bed! What should have been a fantastic interstate road trip with super coach & friend Amanda Ross to Camden CIC1* came unstuck with a stomach bug (me) & 2 run outs (trooper) in the spooky show jumping. All that way and no xc day!
We re-grouped to scale back...
My lovely horse Cullendore Trooper has stepped up successfully to pre-novice this season with a 7th at Tonimbuk Horse Trials & an 8th at Wandin Horse Trials. The next big decision...when do we hit the big time with 1*? This is my January polo getting some serious product testing - mandarin collar sits perfectly with my crash vest & the super soft bamboo fabric is light & cool.
Gorgeous sponsored rider Nina Griffiths won a swag of significant ribbons at Dressage & Jumping with the Stars 5yo class, but most strikingly won the Best & Fairest award. What a beautiful & intelligent rider, so proud to be associated with her success.
Successful local rider Laura Darvall was awarded Best Presented in the 7yo class -obviously because of her Mrs Tutton Friday show shirt!
