Thanks Ladies!

We had a great time! It's funny, the moment we got into the Start Box, Nelson knew his job. He was already locked into the first fence before the Box Official even got to 8 seconds. We walked in at 10, and he was already primed and ready!

Gosh, I love my horse! LOL - our CC time!! Our Optimum Time was 6 minutes and 20 seconds....we came in at 4 mintues and 50 seconds. LOL. We were the sad.

I had my Eventing Watch all set and ready to tick, but I forgot to even start it. Good thing I brought it.

I don't know much about you're story but I really enjoyed watching these clips, well done to you both, especially in some pretty adverse conditions (**** weather hey?).

Good save at jump 3 of the SJ round, certainly not reminiscent of someone who is nervous about stadium jumping (which I gather from your post?).

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
