Just got home from todays competition, and feeling ecstatic!!!
Novice was first, so a lot of pressure on the poor boy who I thought might blow his brain at this particular grounds. But it ended up being me letting the team down, stupid stupid stupid - muddled my medium canter with my canter loop, did them back to front so got an EOC, then just didn't drive enough in my second loop and he broke, corrected it but got a 3 for a movement with a coefficient. Bugger!!
Ended up equal 8th of 22 with a professional rider - and would have been 5th if I hadn't mucked up what I did!!
Prelim I ended up 3rd of 15 riders, again very very very happy with how he went and to place that well in a very strong field of many professionals and stallions, I could not be happier. Considering he's got a heck of a lot more fuel in the tank yet, I think we are very much on our way!
