Freddie and I have had three shows competing in Grade 4 now. Firstly the HnH Autumn Show. The panic set in and it showed! E's all day until a very scrappy jumping clear at the end of the day. Next was South Durham on a beautiful sunny October day. We had a couple of E's but then two clears, one jumping and one agility. Unfortunately too slow for a place.
That finished the summer season but it wasn't long before we found ourselves back at Richmond Equestrian Centre for the HnH Halloween show. Saturday - we got 3 clears out of 4 runs but STILL no place. I was starting to lose heart but then our one clear on the Sunday was good and fast, and we came 6th. We can do grade 4!
Halloween was also Darcey's first show. My little princess did great! She needs a bit more confidence but stayed with me and worked hard. A little star :-)
