It was Total Belief’s turn at Upton on Wednesday. It was her first run back since doing so well in the CCI** at Renswoude and I was fully expecting her to be a bit of a handful from the break! But she totally surprised us all by being super chilled and calm, which was very nice.

In the dressage she did a relaxed test to score 33 and then followed it up with a lovely double clear. I was really keen to give her a nice easy run, so didn’t go super quick cross country, but it was exactly the prep I wanted before she tackles her fist advanced at Aston next week.
