Last month we missed the flat class due to the weather and just missed being Reserve Champion because of that missed class.
Well good weather prevailed and in 1 flat and two over fences classes got 7th on the flat. Then 1st in one over fence class. Then 1st in the second over fences class and 8th in the last over fence class.
He should have placed much higher in the last over fence class but a bee got into my rider's ear on the last line of fences and she rode him one handed over the fences (horse did great) but she dismounted before leaving the ring (would have been elimination) but he was too good in that class so the judge gave us 8th place. Had we placed higher we would have been champion....oh well.
So 2 firsts, one 7th and one 8th = Reserve Champion.
