Millstreet International Horse Trials
First day at Millstreet ✔️ RICKAMORE ROYAL passed the first horse inspection in the CCI-3*L and DYNASTY did a very non-respectable test in the CCI-4*S, but he definitely feels up for the jumping!!
Fantastic day of XC - RICKAMORE ROYAL started the day off brilliantly for me with a clear XC inside the time in the CCI-3*L moving up from 33rd after dressage to 14th. We are still a new partnership so I’m absolutely over the moon with the ride he gave me!! DYNASTY did also not disappoint giving me one of his textbook XC rounds in a tough CCI-4*S to finish with a double clear in 17th place out of over 50 starters. This was his first big run since Burghley and he made it feel so easy and it’s the just the best feeling having him back at this level!! Fingers crossed for a good show jumping round with RICKAMORE ROYAL tomorrow to round off a good week!! 🤞
Unfortunately not quite to be today with RICKAMORE ROYAL as he pulled a shoe on the XC yesterday and was a little sore before the trot up. A sad end to the week but nothing major and I’m so pleased with how he took on a tough XC course for his first time at CCI-3*L. He’s such a jumper that we’ll pretend he jumped a clear round SJ today and was 9th🤣
A fantastic week at a super venue and a great week for the team with Yaz winning the 6yo 2* with Inchello DHI leading from start to finish!!
