Sunshine at Buckminster Horse Trials
We had a great day in glorious sunshine at the lovely Buckminster Horse Trials on Saturday (8th July). I had DHI Event Horses' Castor H Z in the KBIS 5yo class and he was fantastic all day to finish on his dressage of 26.3 and take top spot, qualifying him for Osberton British Young Horse 5yo Championships at the end of September. I also had Guus DHI, owned by Mr and Mrs D Hall and Mr and Mrs J Skinner, in the Novice, who despite my dressage riding being somewhat below par, showed he's maturing all the time at this level.
He had an unfortunate fence down at the last in the show jumping and gave me a great feel XC for a confident but steady clear round. It is only his first season eventing and being only a 6yo I am very pleased with how he is progressing. My next event is at Stafford on Friday (14th July) with Balius 7 in the BE100, our first run as a combination.
