Another good morning at Codham BS.
Billy jumped a brill clear in the clear round as did Paddy. Paddy then jumped the British Novice as Rosie managed to persuade his owner Alex to register him, she was pleased to be proven right when he jumped double clear to win!
Jerry also jumped a lovely round in the BN for one down in the jump off, we’ll blame that on his excursions at the beach yesterday!
A brilliant fun trip to beach Rosie with Jerry accompanied by Natalie and Wispa. Jerry was brilliantly behaved and loved it almost as much as Polly the Labrador!
Fab lessons with Sue Harris, all the 4yo’s showing so much potential and Paddy was great too.
Flame did some XC schooling, she was very well behaved proving to be a real genuine easy 4yo…
Brill day competing babies at Keysoe ode! Since we sold one of our entries Jerry was quickly pulled out of ‘take it easy semi-holiday’ mode to fill the slot in the 90, just love this horse. He’s done 3 events this year, just by chance they have all been at Keysoe! But it’s so nice to see improvement… dressage scores have gone 41, 37 and today 33 🙂 pole SJ to complete our true 4 faultitis day (they all had a pole!). Then the most easy clear XC, we left before results.
Paddy and Billy were in the 80. Billy did a green but very sweet first ever dressage test to score 37, 4 faults sj and a green but very genuine clear XC with 1.2 time to finish 9th, not bad for his first ever competition!
Paddy did a lovely test bar a wobbly last centre line for 33, another 4 (one of those days!) But fab clear XC to finish 4th! All super ponies 😀
Natalie also competed Wispa (4th pic) in the 80 since she was balloted from Little Downham, one down SJ just so she wasn’t the odd one out! Clear XC, well done Natalie and thank you for all your help!
**just seen online results, Jerry was 10th 🙂 **
Fun time XC schooling with 4yo’s Jerry and Billy Wednesday morning, both super, Jerry even popped a couple of Novice fences making them look easy! 🙂
We took two lovely 4yo’s to Codham today.
Billy jumped two good rounds for 1 down and then a clear.
Jerry jumped a super double clear British Novice.
Lovely baby ponies 🙂
We had a trip to Finchingfield EC, Elms Farm on Monday to pop round a course with 4yo’s Jerry and Billy, livery Paddy, 6yo Gemma and Dennis came to have a go round a bit bigger course before he steps up to 90 at the weekend! All were very good 🙂
16.3 8yo bay gelding by Beneficial. Winner of point to points and has run under rules. Safe jumper, equally good with ditches and natural hedges. Very good hack alone / company, traffic, box, shoe etc. Pops a showjump, will work in an outline. Could be retrained, team chased or go back into racing, ideal schoolmaster for someone wanting to have a go pointing! Lovely temperament, no vices. Racing name Champagne Benefit. I am keen to point to point again but unfortunately struggling to find the time to get him fit with all the horses we currently have in work… and a baby!
Homebred 16hands, to make 16.1 4yo Chestnut gelding. Scopey bold jump, 100% genuine. Double clear and placed unaffiliated ode at 80. Clear XC BE90 4yo’s. Has BS winnings. Seen hounds. Lovely kind temperament. Exciting future ahead for this gorgeous boy. Good hack alone/company, catch, box, shoe etc. Air Jordan bloodlines. No vices. Reluctant sale to the right home.
Another double clear to finish on his dressage of 33.5 for Dennis to win the BE80 at Burnham Market yesterday, despite going XC just before 7pm as the heavens opened! It didn’t bother Dennis! A step up to 90 next time for the super cob! #Dennisthemenacewinsagain
