Well the shirt is ironed, jacket (ratcatcher don't have black or navy) & tie ready to go, clean jods, boots are clean (mine & his) though I do have blisters starting at the back of my knees as am breaking in a new pair of leather ones...tack is clean, horse is clean....have my RC card (arrived on Friday) & we jumped well in the lesson today so tomorrow is my first official RC SJ comp with Sid....

Can't believe it's taken me so bl**dy long to get round to this but hey ho!

Pretty meaningless post but just trying to kill time so will be knackered when I get to bed & won't spent have the night riding courses in my head....

ya we won!!!

16 in the class - he warmed up nicely, spooked at the ambulance but not to worry - hailstones as we went in (Sid no like hailstones!)...and we pinged around, bit fast in the jump off (optimum time was 45 and we were around 41 I think)
anyway thought we might be placed so hung around and, they called Ballingarry Dream...thought to myself must be another horse with Sid's first name in the class - then realised there wasn't and it was me, not sure how Gamble looks like Dream but anyway!!...wooooo hoooo...nice silver thing (not sure what?) & shiny big red rosette

Delighted

Off to scrub up now as have all my outlaws coming for sunday lunch, thankfully OH is cooking!
