I only had Ceylor LAN and Persimmon at Gatcombe. Ceylor LAN was in the Open Intermediate. He did a very solid test with some fantastic canter work and scored a competitive 28.2.

He then jumped a fantastic clear in the show jumping. I was thrilled with his round as the ground was pretty muddy and sticky, but he coped really well in it.

He then jumped a lovely clear cross country. We went rather sedately as the ground was gluey and he is a special young horse. Our time faults left is just outside the top ten.

Persimmon was competing in the Advanced Intermediate, but as he had only run the week before at Lincoln we just did our dressage. He did a fantastic test to score 26.5. He did some lovely work, but still has things to improve on so it’s hugely exciting to score so well when I know we still haven’t reached his full potential.
