I had Ceylor LAN in the CIC***, Persimmon in the Open Intermediate and Vendredi Biats and Billy Bounce in the Open Novice.

Ceylor LAN did a much improved test in the three star compared to last year, he felt much stronger and more up hill and did some great work, we made some annoying mistakes in his rein back and last halt which were costly. He scored a 46.6 which I was a little disappointed with as I thought he’d shown some lovely work.
Watch our test here:

He jumped a super clear in the show jumping, absolutely pinging round. 
Watch our round here:
He jumped brilliantly round the cross country and gave me a lovely ride. We didn’t go flat out as its still early in the season, so picked up 7.4 time faults. This left us just out the top ten in 11th place. 
Watch our round here:
Persimmon was having his first run of the season, he was a little fresh and feisty in his dressage, but still did some super work to score a competitive 27.5. 
He then jumped a great clear in the show jumping and felt on great form. 
Watch our round here:
He was very keen to get going round the cross country and whizzed round, he really enjoyed himself and was very pleased to be out again, as he was rather keen I had the handbrake on a little. We picked up 7.2 time faults to finish in 5th place. 
Watch our round here:
After being a little cheeky the week before at Gatcombe Vendredi Biats was having an extra run at Burnham to get back into the swing of the season. He did a lovely test again and scored a very competitive score of 28. 
He then jumped a super clear round the show jumping. 
Watch our round here:

He skipped round the cross country, finding it all very effortless and easy and his concentration was much better than Gatcombe! We picked up a couple of time faults which left us in 3rd place.
Watch our round here:

Billy Bounce was a little more excited in his test than at Gatcombe, we made some silly little mistakes through lack of concentration, but over all his work was very good. He scored a 33.5.

He then jumped a super clear in the show jumping, it was so nice to finally get I’m out on the grass and jumping in a competition at last!

He jumped a lovely but steady clear round the cross country and felt very pleased and happy to be finally going cross country again.
