Hunter Trial report.

Had a fantastic day today, I took my Tb to a local hunter trial and entered the 70cms class (as we haven't competed for a couple of years). Belle had an amazing time and just flew over the jumps without a stop although she nearly did at some scary blue barrels.

An hour later we were in the pairs class with a friend of mine on her tb the same age and height as mine. We decided to let Belle lead which she loved and my friend's horse was happy to race to catch up! We stormed around the curse and came 2nd!!

Some photos f the day.

I'm now hoping to take her in the Team Chase in September, but that might be just a bit too exciting

2nd is fantastic, especially for not competing in a while

I was really pleased especially as it was a big class. I have no idea how they worked out the penalties as we went clear and flew round the course, they must have set a bogey time but we didn't see it posted up. I got 34 time penalties in the first class so the winner must have been incredibly fast unless the set time was slower and we went too quickly - I just don't know

That looks crazy fun! I would totally compete in them if my horse wasn't such a looneybin sometimes, and if they had them around here.

the adrenalin buzz is brilliant, I can't think why they are not popular in the US? Basically it is the exciting bit of eventing! without the stress of dressage and show jumping. My mare is an excitable thoroughbred but she absolutely loved it and was looking for the next jump to lock on to
