Onley Grounds – British Novice – 23 August 2020

Our best round to date – putting everything Michael Jones and Emma have been coaching me towards. Ran through fence 6 as I got him too close, making the related distance at fence 7 a stretch – but otherwise a really pleasing performance.

As I exited the ring, the course builder commented that it was a very nice round, and such a shame that I had been eliminated. I’m such a numpty – I had jumped the wrong last fence! Mind you it jumped well and I made the distance work – so all good!!

On the video you can see the line I took, jumping number 2 again – should have been a dog-leg to the oxer (must remember not to call it a spread)!

Never mind, happy with our efforts today – despite the EOC forcing an elimination!
