Aldon International Horse Trials (1)
The weather was somewhat Baltic at Aldon yesterday and a huge thank you must go to the organisers and volunteers for keeping it going in such testing weather!
I had Guus DHI in the Novice doing a 27 dressage, show jumped fantastically for 4 faults and a super but slow clear XC. Balius 7 was also in the Novice doing a 31 dressage, went a little green show jumping but showed his hunting with the Portman has really paid off and gave me the best feeling for a clear XC cruising round with just a few time faults. Quick Guy was the star of the day in the BE100, just adding 0.8 time penalties to his 27 dressage to finish 2nd. Super pleased with all of them, and now battling the second round of the beast from the east, meaning Dynasty didn't get his AI run as the rest of the event was abandoned...it's safe to say we weren't expecting more snow!
