After a tough few weeks with the horses today I was given a firm reminder of why I do this mental eventing malarkey!
I had Borne Again in the ON at Keysoe and he was a total superstar - he hasn't jumped a cross country fence since April, so we were anything but well prepared, but he jumped a foot perfect double clear! He also did the best test we've ever done together to score a respectable 35.5 - we even managed to stay in the arena at all times (bonus!).
In the end we finished 8th in a pretty competitive section so I'm completely chuffed, coming home with a massive smile on my face!
It may have only been a Novice but it's a pretty awesome feeling when all the perseverance and determination pays off - huge thank you to Mum and top grooms Claire and Lottie for all their hard work and support; the only way is up now!
