We had a great time with lots of placings. My debut ride and drive appearance was not one of my finest moments- most of the cones came down as I drove through the second half of the course in the little french car. However Miriam was awesome, fast in the jumping on Molly and showing some good driving skills too. A good placing and money was gained.
I peaked on the last day with Gold in the Grand prix, gaining a creditable third place. Just beaten by a couple of slightly faster french men.
These foreign shows differ from ours. The riders are particularly fast against the clock. The tracks are built using wide oxers and testing lines. Great education for the horses. We aim to get a couple more shows in abroad before the end of the year. Watch this space. Before then it is Bury farm this week, in good old UK. The competition will be tough there, with lots of good riders supporting this great venue.'
