March 23rd: Bury Farm
Having spent several days resting, relaxing and recovering the Prancing Princess was rather reluctant to leave her paddock and perform today. The dressage diva put up quite a protest in the warm up arena but thankfully reverted to a red rosette queen on entering the ring – little monkey!
March 17th: Qualifying at Quainton
Having been restricted to predominately walk and trot tests, Rosie relished the opportunity to go a little faster today! The pilot actually got to grips with the steering and together we produced two super tests, winning both the Novice & Elementary tests with scores of 73 & 71%
March 14th: Champion Prancing Pony
Rosie rocked her championship test and took home the Restricted Grade II National Champion title scoring 72.5%, Rosie & I also received the trophy for the highest scoring restricted rider across all grades. Mincing Milly felt fresh for her 19yrs, won the warm up test and stood reserve champion behind Rosie. Chuffed to pieces with the pair of them!
March 9th: Practice Makes Perfect
Rosie was put through her paces at Bury Farm. A good practice before Nationals, the Prancing pony produced a solid performance in the Novice test resulting in a win against a high standard of horses.
March 8th: Mincing Milly Returns To The Ring
A great day at Glebe EC with the dancing donkey, having not ridden her for 2 months I thought she’d be a little rusty. The old pony proved me wrong, stonking scores of 77+% & 75% saw us return home with two Dressage Championship titles.
