Total Belief had a great event at the Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials CCI-S4*.

In the dressage she was so rideable and really on side throughout, I thought she could have scored in the late 20s but still got a very respectable 32.7, with a few bits for me to go away and work on before Bramham.

The ground in the show-jumping wasn’t ideal for her, and looking back I should have trusted her a bit more at the beginning of our round, but overall she coped brilliantly and jumped a great round.

Then onto the cross-country where she was mega! Feeling fantastic on the notorious Chatsworth terrain and loving every minute of it. I didn’t push for time as we were treating this as a prep run for Bramham but she came home easily with 14.4 time faults to finish in the top 20. Couldn’t be happier with her ??

Leaping Lord, owned by Margaret Cuff was also competing in the CCI-S2*. After a bit of tense dressage he pulled a lovely double clear out the bag and gave me a great ride cross country.

As ever huge thank you to all the event organisers and Team Keen for all their support.
