So yesterday may not have been the perfect weather with all the wind and rain, for going showjumping but I throughly enjoyed my day at Netley Hall with Percy and Florence. Luckily they ran the Open class first thing in the morning so we were all done by 10.30. The course was a true open track and I'm made up with how my two homebred horses tackled the courses. Percy was up first and had an unlucky 4 faults at the last fence. Then Florence jumped a great clear. In the second round the roles were reversed and Percy jumped out of his skin for a fantastic clear. And Florence had a brilliant round but was so unlucky for 4 faults at the last. Just delighted with how well they jumped. Percy's team for Nantwich Riding Club of Amanda Dakin, John Done and Lisa Cadman finished with 4 faults after the two rounds which unfortunately just wasn't quite good enough for the win and took 2nd. Florence's team weren't so lucky with two of the riders having bad second rounds and finished 5th.
After a lovely social Tea Party aboard Queen Wendy with my friends from East Clwyd Riding Club which has become a bit of a trend, I spent two hours up in the judges box doing the timing control for the Intermediate class, which I actually really enjoyed.
