Wow wow wow! What a little legend my Wonder Moose is!
Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case with horses, although I'm coming home with an enormous smile on my face the result on paper doesn't quite reflect that. In the OIu21 at Aston Le Walls Mickey started out with a beautiful test for a slightly tough mark of 33, followed by an awesome show jumping round lowering one rail.
Cross country he was just unbelievable, I think it's safe to say it's the best he's ever felt and he dealt with the more technical questions like an absolute pro. I was having such a lovely time that at the final combination, a water jump, I rode him boldly in thinking he'd prop a little at the drop (he very definitely didn't!), so he flew in...and then flew past the 'b' element because I'd made the distance too short for him!
All in all a cracking day...a lot learned and coming home with a Moose who still thinks he's absolutely brilliant...which to be honest, I would agree with 100%! ☺️🎉
