Tooradin Horse Trials October 2009

Another Horse Trials which I almost did not get to compete at as I ended up on the waiting list. Did not get a spot confirmed until the morning before. Dressage (very civilised time of 10.55 am) went well putting me in 11th spot. Showjumping in the afternoon did not go quite as smoothly with Occy looking at the Judge instead of jump 2 and getting a rail plus another rail later in the course.

Cross Country went very well on the Sunday. I did get slightly geographically embarrassed between jumps 7 and 9, but managed to find jump 8 after a quick circle back. And I did walk that part of the course 4 times as I knew navigation could be tricky at speed. I was right. Clear with 5.2 time penalties, putting me in 10th spot overall. No ribbon but a good comp. Just need to continue to work on the Showjumping.
