Handsome is as handsome does...and Handsome did GOOD!
What can I say?! What an AMAZING week at Blair Castle International Horse Trials and Country Fair. Sooty hasn't put a foot wrong and we ended up finishing 14th in a big field full of top professionals.
He did a beautiful test for a very competitive score of 47.8. Cross country he absolutely flew round a very lengthy 8.5 minute long course, making it feel easy! He rolled one irritating pole show jumping, but I really can't fault him.
I can't believe we've only been a partnership for 8 weeks...it feels like a lifetime! We are now all qualified for 2 star, so we can crack on for a next run at Gatcombe.
A huge huge thank you to my incredible team who have made these past few days so much fun...Mum, Dad, Super Groom Hayley, my trainer Sorrel Warrwick and my amazing friend Katie who came to cheerlead! Not forgetting Lottie James who has kept the yard ticking over while I was away!
