We headed down to South of England for quite a wet weather weekend, but all the Team Keen horses went well.
The two five year olds where up first in the BE100. Total Miracle went nicely in the dressage and show-jumping, but I decided not to run him cross country this time. He has been so good throughout his first season of eventing and now deserves a well earnt break in the field. I was really thrilled with Quintessential, who did a 26 dressage and double clear to finish 5th. I feel she is now prepared for Osberton 5yr old Championships this week and we will be going there with some great runs behind us.
Troja Queen, owned by the Giessler family, had a really promising run, with an improved dressage and great double clear to finish 10th. Leaping Lord owned by Margaret Cuff was also in the novice. He again improved in the dressage, had an unlucky pole show-jumping but went really well and clear cross country.
It was also a big weekend for our working pupil Leah Bentley who was competing in her first CIC* (it was the horses first international too). I was so proud of them both, they did a lovely dressage, unlucky two down show-jumping and then a cracking clear cross country. Leah rode her socks off and was an absolute star.
Team Keen are now heading towards the last few events of the season, fingers crossed for a good last couple of runs.
