Next up was Arrow in the Central North West 80 Challenge Final. She was rather excitable to say the least and was some what distracted in her dressage for a 33.3. On to the showjumping where the ground was struggling to hold up. She was still rather full of herself but jumped quite possibly the best round she has ever jumped, coping remarkably well with the sticky ground and gave me an awesome clear. On to xc, still full of beans and pulling a few shapes but she pinged round the course clear in the time for 9th place, which is a super result and finish to her season. I just feel I’ve lost her dressage towards the end of the season but I think it’s a combination of a young horse getting to know and love her job and realising what comes after dressage. I’m sure with some dressage outings through the winter months this will help this situation, but for now she has a well deserved holiday.
Massive thank you to @Ruby Doe who spent dusk til dawn with me and helped with the horses, took pictures and kept me very entertained. Big thank you’s also to @David Shard and Paul Moss for more photos.
