XC Schooling @ Aston-le-Walls

Using one of the Schooling vouchers I either won at Aston-le-Walls, or was given as a thank you for Fence Judging, before Finn moves to Claire’s and the travelling makes it difficult.

          Aston-le-Walls is such a great venue now, so many alternatives of SJ and XC fences – in the huge all weather arenas and XC on grass. We started in the new all weather arena, working over the show jumps, Nigel was pleased with us today – he was encouraging me to fold even less now –...
