What a fantastic climax to the season for our lovely 5 and 6 year olds.
JL Dublin owned by James and Jo Lambert and Deirdre Johnston produced a lovely dressage test and a fabulous double clear inside the time to finish 2nd in the 6yr old CIC1* Young Horse Championships. ‘Dubs’ jumped beautifully in both phases and it was a fitting end to his very successful season.
All We Need owned by Penny Marriner and Lady Milnes Coates again produced one of the best dressage tests of the 6yr old Championships but rolled a pole in the show jumping in an otherwise lovely round and gave me a confident cross country ride again inside the time to finish a very pleasing 9th. ‘Monti’ has grown and developed so much this season and I am thrilled with his performance in these Championships.
In the 5yr old Championships the competition was very tight and Chabadu owned by James and Jo Lambert produced a 27.1 test to lie 3rd after dressage, he gave me a lovely cross country ride but a costly 4 faults in the show jumping in such a close competition dropped us to 11th but he was a pleasure in all three phases and is a very exciting prospect for the future.
Once again Osberton provided great competition and a very well organised event, thank you to all involved
