36 round abouts later and that was only on the way there - we ventured to Keysoe for the first time.
On saturday with my own ' Undalgo De Windsor' having his final run before Chatsworth 4*. A lovely dressage in the Intermediate of 31, and a pretty immaculate D/C, adding just time faults XC, after a steady run ahead of next week. To place 9th.

Back today with the 'Heros Row' owned by Iona Dent and Rosie Dent. Competing in the Novice, a few cheeky moments in his dressage to score 36, followed by a foot perfect D/C, around a tough novice track with plenty of questions to go inside the time and place 8th. Feeling fantastic, On great form and gave me a super ride. He is next due to run at Rockingham Novice.
(Sadly he will soon be offered For Sale.)

'Interlaken W' 6yo Stallion- owned by myself and Nicky Bennell Proved himself once again! A lovely dressage but still plenty of room for improvement to score 31. Then an unlucky pole (completly jockey error!) In the SJ. On to the XC, which was by far the toughest he has ever seen... only being his 3rd Novice. Lots of questions and a strong water. But he took it all in his stride to go clear just adding time faults.

Last of the day was the super talented 5yo 'Confession Time' Owned by Em Tweedie competing in the BE100.A sweet test but rather green and wobbly at times but never the less scoring a respectable 29.5. A great D/C for him finding it all very easy. So bold, straight and plenty he hasn't seen before he took it all in his huge stride to finish 4th!


Rockingham International 

An amazing day at the beautiful Rockingham Castle International Horse Trials

'Confession Time' Owned by Em Tweedie. This lovely 5yo did the best dressage in his BE100 section on a score of 27. A frustrating pole in the double after jumping big in and making up too much ground - a green mistake. Then a super bold and quick XC round to finish 2nd. He's just getting better and better and loving being an event horse!

'Heros Row' Owned by Rosie Dent and Iona Dent. Did an equally impressive dressage in the novice scoring 27.5. A perfect D/C and inside the time saw him finish 3rd in a very competitive section. He will now be advertised and is sure to give his next jockey slot of fun and success.

'Interlaken W' Owned by myself and Nicky Bennell. At only 6yo he has turned into quite the pro. A nice dressage with a couple of baby mistakes and almost trying too hard to score 33. And another perfect D/C in only his 3rd Novice. Exciting this ahead for him.
