2011 ROLEX KENTUCKY – Remington

9th Place

At the beginning of 2011, I had Remington, Last Monarch and Neville Bardos all heading for Kentucky. Through minor injuries my list of four star horses was just left with the old warhorse, Remi.

He had wonderful preparation, winning a few lead up events. He did a respectable dressage test with the only disappointing part being the rider making a course error. The cross country footing was a little bit heavy which contributed to Remi picking up a few time faults.

The most rewarding part of the weekend was the clear round in the show jumping. Since our disappointing round at Pau, we had worked quite hard at this and he jumped beautifully. From a riding point of view it was a memorable event due to the fact I rode with two active fractures in my left wrist from a heavy fall a few weeks before.
