Steady Eddie – 2018 Pau, France

We shipped Eddie over to France after changing our original plan to run him at Burghley. Unfortunately Burghely was too close to the WEG. We had him fit, so I decided to run him at Pau instead. He did a decent dressage test that left him in mid field. The course at Pau was twisty and had corner after corner and narrow after narrow. Eddie’s quirky side came out on the left handed corners. After two run outs on the course I decided to pull him up and retire three quarters around the course. It marked yet another frustrating event with Eddie. He had so much speed and jump, but has always hated big turning fences to corners.
