Yesterday I took Florence and Percy for the British Showjumping Amateur Second Round at Southview. They had both qualified in the 95cm class. Both jumped impeccable double clears to finish 10th and 11th, not often Percy beats his sister but I rode Florence with the handbrake on because I knew she just needed a clear in the jump off to qualify for the Amateur Championships at Aintree because the top 12 qualify and we were second last to jump and the 4 faulters were in 11th and 12th spots. Job done. Two qualifications. After jumping in the morning I had to whizz home, shower and change, then whizz up to Leeds for a wedding. I was feeling very accomplished!!! One thing I have to say is...wow...how fast do the show jumpers go in the jump off's!!!! I've got some learning to do ready for Aintree!!!
