Wilton Horse Trials

In the beautiful setting of Wilton House My Man Mickie competed in the Novice section.  Pleased with his dressage test today he is improving all the time and got a respectable score of 34.  He felt so good show jumping just kept in a  lovely rhythm and took it all on and jumped another clear round.

Cross country was great, we decided to push him on a little bit more this time and aim to get around in the time – which we did but this time a little too quickly resulting in a 0.4 too fast time penalty!  We just had a little bit of a ‘moment’ as we approached the palisade on top of the hill down 2 big steps to a skinny – we took the red flag with us and I had to ride with determination for the skinny!  Awesome horse he did all that was asked of him.  Placed 10th in his class.
