A fantastic busy 3 days at Hambleden, all of the horses felt fantastic and it was very exciting, to have lots of supporters and owners around for the few days.

The first day was the BE100, with ex racehorse Danetime Panther, AceSilver Shadow belonging to Mrs Nickie Bennell, Undalgo De Windsor having his 3rd run and About Time Too the new ride having his 2nd outing.
About Time Too, did a lovely test scoring a respectable 31, he followed this up with a lovely double clear adding just a few time to finish 9th. His next run will be Novice at Aston le Walls, he is a very exciting horse for the future and i look forward to seeing how far he can go.
Danetime Panther is really getting the hang of this eventing malarki, producing a nice test scoring 35.5, he then felt a little flat in the SJ which is unusual but he had run back to back weekends so interesting that this might not suit him. Never the less he took everything in his stride. XC he was a machine, with lots of questions asked, the most he has seen to date and he made it all feel very easy.
AceSilver Shadow, was just the cutest, this lovely 15hh 10yo, did a very accurate test, to score 33, he then followed this up with a foot perfect double clear to finish 3rd in a competitive section.

Saturday was Novice day with  Eyesnosebest, Corinthian Clover, Hamilton and Creeslough.

Eyesnosebest posted her best dressage score to date, a very respectable 27, she then show jumped very well, just having an unlucky 4 faults. The XC asked her plenty of questions, just sadly being caught out by the spooky steps down into the quarry and an irritating miss understanding towards the end of the course. She will come on alot from this run.
Corinthian Clover, was just a star, producing a very smart test but utterly dissapointed by the ridiculous marking in his section. The judge clearly did not see what it felt like, which was very annoying! But he then jumped a brilliant double clear and felt just brilliant to finish 9th in his section.

Hamilton, did his best test to date of 27.5, but the SJ phase did not go as Ginny had hoped. NAUGHTY HAMILTON!

Creeslough made up for Hamilton's dissapointment, and was just perfect. He did a nice test and restrained from too many additional flying changes for 33.  Then a classy Double Clear to finish 2nd in his section.

Last but not least, Sunday was the Novice with the lovely CVS Indian Summer and Knights Escapade in the Novice, a day of highs and lows.

CVS Indian Summer did a beautiful test and scored her best score to date 28.8, she then jumped a faultless clear in the show jumping. XC she was absolutly flying, and making everything feel very easy, she jumped boldly through both water fences, but gutted to say she slightly miss judged the C element of the final water, and pecked on lading resulting in a really silly fall, totally gutted as she was well in the lead and could not have gone better. Just one of those very annoying things but both horser and rider are fine and can't wait for her next run!!
Knights Escapade, was a little pocket rocket, scoring a respectable 30 in the dressage, having just an unlucky pole in the SJ, where  he just didnt make up enough ground through a combination, but jumped well. XC he was flying and came home 5 seconds inside the time to finish 2nd!

HIGHS AND LOWS! But on the whole a very cool weekend, and its safe to say the season is looking very exciting with some really exciting horses!

Thank you from Ginny to everyone who is keeping the horses looking in such tip top condition. Also for all the help over a busy weekend!
