The showjumping was in a picturesque site below the castle, and the XC courses were run over undulating ground and asked plenty of questions. We thoroughly enjoyed the event and it will be a firm fixture in our eventing calendar in the future.
Mark had a super weekend, winning a novice section with Dante (who was competing in his first novice) on an excellent dressage score of 18. He continued the winning streak with Rudy, in the Open Novice section with another excellent dressage score of 21.5.
Erano the lovely five year old, also completed double clear to finish 4th.
Emperor, a recent arrival, competed his first double clear in the BE 100 to finish 7th.
Tanya had a slightly frustrating weekend, her horses all went very well, although Venus was the only one to come home with a rosette.
Jet, who ran in the intermediate, and Bertie in the Novice, both faulted at the out element of the Coffin only 3 from home. Both were in winning positions.
Kirsty and Topper also faulted at the coffin, again in a winning position.
If the coffin is cut down for fire wood, we know where to look!
