It was another weekend of first time runs for our horses, Ballinagore Coal finished 11th in his Novice class, with him being a little less experienced than the advanced horses he felt a bit greener with not being as well prepared for the event as I would of preferred due to being side lined with my broken collarbone but he put in a good performance and shows a lot of potential for the future. Ngong Hills was superb in the Open Intermediate doing an outstanding dressage test of 21 followed by a super double clear to finish 3rd.
Beltane Queen was also great in the CIC** finishing 4th. She also did a lovely dressage test getting a mark of 41 in the international class. I did feel that she was a little tenser in the dressage than sometimes but this is to be expected for her first run of the season, but she still produced a super test, one down in the show jumping and a lovely but not not overly fast xc round left her in 4th place.
