Had a super long day today at the Area 20 Riding Club Qualifier run by Nantwich Riding Club. First to go was Frankie in the open. He hadn't been out jumping for about 6 weeks so I had a couple of quite excitable rounds and an unfortunate 4 faults in both, but we still picked up 5th individually and the Nantwich team of John Done, Lisa Cadman (4th ind), Nicola Moran (3rd ind) and myself won, so off to the Nationals we go.
Next up it was Florence in the Intermediate. Unfortunately we were only going as individuals as the team had fallen apart, so the only way to qualify was to win the class as an individual.....so we did.....out of 40 people!!! Three words - "What A Star". From the first round to the third round, she didn't miss a beat. Huge achievement. :-)
Percy did the novice, which was a touch small for him but he had a lovely fun time with a clear and 4 faults. He spent most his time taking the mick out if me but he enjoyed it. Neither him or the team were in the placings.
Finally it was the Style jumping for Florence and it appears she likes the colour red and so pulled another win out of the bag, as did the Nantwich team of Nicola Moran(6th ind), Lisa Cadman (5th ind) and Corrie Mclellan. Florence's score was 107 which was about 76%. :-)
Very successful day with three Nationals qualifications :-)
