On Saturday I took both Florence and Percy to Malpas Horse Trials. It was Florence's first run since I fell and it was Percy's first ever BE100, so quite a bit of pressure was on. It was boiling hot and the Xc looked quite a decent track but my day ran very smoothly. Florence was very sweet in the dressage for a 29 then jumped a great double clear and was one second inside the time for 4th place. Percy was fairly settled in the dressage and scored 33.5, he was then really unlucky in the SJ and had the first fence down, he then stormed round the Xc like a pro. Unfortunately his fence down moved him out of the placings but 15th out of 41 in his first BE100 wasn't bad. Thrilled with them both and over the moon that Florence is back on form.
