Well, Rockingham Castle - what an event, what an experience!
After our lorry died 80 miles from the competition it took a monumental team effort to even get us there! Huge thank you to all Admin TwitterEventing for their help as well as the BEST sponsor in the world Born and Bred (Equestrian Clothing) for coming to our rescue.
Mickey did his best test to date in the CIC*, scoring a very competitive mark of 45.0, which I was delighted with. He then went on to jump the most beautiful clear show jumping (VIDEO), we're really getting it together over the coloured poles so super happy with that too. Cross country he was flying, but unfortunately miscommunication on my part led to a very expensive run out at a corner.
An eventful, educational few days. Our sport, as with any, is a tough one at times but the trick I've learnt is that if you keep smiling you can battle on through pretty much anything! A lesson learned the hard way but a lesson learned for sure - we'll be ready next time!
