We had a super couple of days at Bicton Arena. Organiser Helen West had built some fabulous course on ground which was perfect.
Total Equestrian Construction’s Total Darkness felt back to form after being slightly off colour on his last couple of runs with a virus.
He tried his best not to spook too much in the dressage to score a respectable 33. One very unlucky pole show jumping and a good clear cross country, furthering his education each time out. He will head for the Young horse championships at Osberton.
Total Belief was slightly tense in the dressage, but once again she produced an immaculate double clear. The hand brake still firmly on across country, as she is still a very young horse and we are producing her with the future in mind.
I also had a first run on Crinan Classic and there is much to like about him. He’s an ex-racehorse who had eight runs on the flat as a three and four-year-old and started eventing a couple of years ago.
