Had a great day with Lander and Loki at their first BE event at Homme House Horse Trials yesterday. Lander was a star all day, taking it all in his stride. He did a lovely relaxed test and sailed around the XC like a natural. He is really improving every week, and with just three weeks to Burghley the excitement is really building!
Loki was a bit tense in the dressage, but jumped a fantastic double clear. It is probably the most testing XC he has come across, with lots of skinny brushes that really aren't his favourite, he looked a class act all the way. We have a few ideas to tweak his warm up and help relax him, then he will really show us what he can do!
Lander is on the waitlist for the KBIS British Equestrian Insurance 4 year old class at West Wilts Equestrian Centre next week. It would be great to get to go as, due to our competition schedule, it is the last qualifier he will get to. It would be great to have him at both Osberton and Burghley, and he is definitely capable!
Loki will join Teldon as we travel to Bicton Arena for the CIC2* and BE100, not to forget The Eventing Family fundraiser!! From there they will both go to Wellington one of my favourite events on the calendar! We couldn't fit it in last year, but I am really excited to see the new CIC3* track.
