Clare from Team Sweet shares her good results.……
Back in February we were still not quite sure on what date we would be allowed to travel our horses again, never mind compete them – the weather was either wet or frozen and keeping motivated to ride was hard work, especially with the dark nights still lingering on!
I had been told about a local online unaffiliated Dressage competition and thought why not give it a go but there was one slight issue – we only had a week to learn the test and film it.
Olivia decided to enter the Prelim class and I decided to enter Humbug in his first Novice test. Due to the bad weather the day I booked Kev (my devoted horsey husband) to come to the yard and film us was the first time I had ridden this test on Humbug and this ended up being the recording I sent to the judge. He always tries his heart out.
Well what an outcome for Humbugs first Dressage run of the year –
Olivia and Humbug came 4th on the Prelim class 😊, whilst Humbug and I came 2nd in our first Novice test together – The judge also passed on some lovely comments about Humbug too 😊
Good boy Humbug!
Well let’s hope we can get out and compete for real soon, as I for sure have the bug back again and I know Chocolate is keen to get out out too!
Are you looking forward to getting out and about again? ……………….
