It's been a busy but productive couple of weeks.

Firstly it was off to Bicton with JD and Sox for the CIC** It was an incredible effort from the hardy organisers as 10 hours of torential rain fell overnight on the saturday. Many riders packed up and headed home and I think I might have joined them had JD's owner Su, not traveled all the way from New Zealand to watch!!

In the end it was a worthwhile exercise as both horses jumped confident double clears to finish 4ht (JD) and 5th (Sox)

The xc at Millstreet in Ireland would have to rank amongst the best presented tracks worldwide. Spectacular water features, bold timberand superb footing meant horses just grew in confidence the further they went. I had 5 brilliant xc rides but mixed my dressage and sj form somewhat. JD was the most consistent placing 3rd in the 2 star. Bear was 11th and Eric 14th in the 3 star and Sox and Ned both gained their all important qualifications for CCI's at 3 star level with very promising clears xc.
