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.
