Personal Record FEI Dressage Score at Plantation Field

Our local horse trials and CIC at Plantation Field is off to a dynamite start. All of the horses did fabulous dressage tests and I can’t tell you how happy I am with all six of them. In the CIC2* Barry , owned by Kathleen Crompton and Nancy Hathaway was first to go and put in a great test for a green horse finishing on a score of 45. It’s his first two star and I’ll be looking to give him a nice confident run around cross country

Blackfoot Mystery, owned by the Blackfoot Mystery Syndicate, did a pearl of a test. He hasn’t been out much this year but he’s such a star when it comes to competition day and we’re out in front in the CIC2*A.  I’ll be looking to give him a good show jumping round tomorrow and a nice brisk run cross country.

 

Shamwari 4 is leading the CIC2*B after a spectacular test. In all my years of eventing this is my best score to date. My old campaigner is good as gold and jumping well and I’m confident he’ll put in a good round on cross country.

Crackerjack. Many thanks to my new “head girl”, Sidney, for all her hard work.

Lucy Boynton’s Crackerjack was first up this morning and I thought he did a great test; I’m a bit surprised he was not in the 40’s but his work in the ring was good. He’s a fantastic jumper and this will be a great preparation for the Pau CCI4* in France in about a month’s time.

Long Island T, also owned by a Syndicate, went in and did a brilliant test. This horse has got such wonderful movement, the judges loved it. His extensions are world-class and I was very impressed by the way he handled himself today. I feel like we’re slowly building a partnership and I’ll be looking for a confident run over the jumps in his first CIC3*

Chris Turner’s Tsetserleg had a personal best in the CIC3* this afternoon and cracked on with a 48 which is his best score to date. He’s been the quiet achiever this year and I believe he’ll be competitive in the jumping this year and finish well.

So far this event has really felt like the ‘best event ever’. The community has come out to support it, the footing is the best I’ve seen in America, the course looks sensational and I must say, it’s fantastic riding at an event that is just ten minutes from the house.
