I'm in your section!

Thankfully we are not in Ruth Edge & Paper Tiger's section (SCS your horse is too good! 14.? for dressage indeed!

We managed to avoid Ian Stark too.

Not a happy bunny. Cold clayed & bandaged his leg overnight , he seems better now. I'm not sure if he had bashed his fetlock which was a bit puffy or bruised his sole which had the rock of Gibralter jammed between it & his shoe!

The Farrier was out today though & didn't think it looked bruised.

So fingers crossed please

Oh poor you. Hope he's okay. Sure he'll be fine for next week.

I'm nursing husband and a horse at the moment. Rob was doing a ODE yesterday in Northumberland and all was going brilliantly until Pads slipped at a corner on the XC and back legs went. He fell over with Rob still on him, trapping Rob's leg in the process. Fortunately both okay, but stiff and sore. So, lots of TLC required at the moment! Just add it to my list of things to do.......

Arnica tablets and cream are always in plentiful supply when those two are out and about. Fortunately the ego isn't too dented as he was doing so well up to that point! God help me when he makes it to the Intro at Culzean. I'll never be able to cope!

Can sympathise with the injured horses - just had the vet out to Paper Tiger's sister, who ALWAYS gets an infection in every cut she gets, even though we poultice her straight away. Fingers crossed he isn't as accident-prone as she is. Hope you are all recovered by next weekend, and have a good time. Silly isn't it, I'm going to be disapointed if Paper Tiger gets a 30 dressage now - - not sure he can ever improve on the 14...

I will burst into tears if we ever manage 30 & I think I would faint if we got a 14 (not that I EVER have to worry about that)

Did anyone get it on video as I am sure Eventriders.com would love to have it & I know I would love to see it.

D has been fairly healthy in the 2 years I have had him, this is the first time he has been lame so I'm hoping it was just from the stone & he is a little sore.

fingers crossed he will be right as rain for next weekend & I can actually complete a PN

Hope your girly is better soon. Your boy has got me obsessing about JT youngsters, I am determined to get my hands on one now!
