Been knocking on the door of a win all season. 5 events and 5 top ten finishes. Been in top 5 last 3 events. Rackham was his day. 28.5 for 2nd after dressage, clear SJ round a track that sent poles (and riders!) flying everywhere and awesome clear XC 8secs inside time. He really is a superstar! Earned himself a summer break from eventing now until we get some decent rain. Time to focus on dressage with Summer Regionals and our Advanced Medium debut coming up!

He is just flying at the moment. He went and won at BD yesterday too. 2% clear to win E59 overall on 69.2% and then 67.7% in our first attempt at M69 to win the unaffiliated section and come 4th overall. He's awesome!

That's brilliant, well done!! Don't forget though he's not awesome entirely on his own - I'm sure it helps having you to remind him which jump comes next / what letter to strut his stuff at ;-)

Sometimes I think all I do is steer lol. Can't believe how far his dressage has come though. Advanced Medium next month! Eeek! Never thought I'd ride at this level, especially not on him.
