Took my horse XC yesterday, it was the first time he had been anywhere in the lorry, let alone to a competition for 10 months due to lorry issues and both of us being unwell.

I did the smaller class than usual which was good as he was sooo excited ! The first 5 or 6 fences he was really green, but after that he seamed to have a YAHOO!
moment and then he just took off and we did the rest of the course at high speed.

By the time we came accross the last field, every time I touched him with my hands or seat he was leaping in the air
and then charging off again, so I had to start missing out some of the 'non galloping' fences, so we didn't come to a sticky end.

He's normally not too bad so I am hoping that he has got it out of his system and will be calmer next week, otherwise I am going to have to invest in a severe brake upgrade!

MrsMozart: I have my fingers crossed. Stockland Lovell next weekend. Fences will be a bit bigger, and you can run on on that course a bit more, so we should be OK.

Noldlp111: We went to Moreton.
