Our Regionals went well with two horses getting through to the National Championships. That came around very quickly. Susie Farnon's 4 year old was placed 7th in the young horse finals. We had a lorry load of horses compete at coombelands horse trials. With Bronze Medallion winning the BE80. Perequito was 3rd in BE100, and two other horses finishing in the placings. Fideramber also won his first Grand Prix last week. Where do I stop. Di Patterson has a new 5 year old in Bubbles. Johnson x Aktion. He is so lovely. I am sure you will see him out and about soon. So now all the big shows are finished for the time being, we hit the local shows for experience with our baby horses, as well as trying to reflect on the year and where we can gain that extra mark or two for next year.
