Brilliant weekend at Bradwall Horse Trials!
We took both our 6 year olds to Bradwall Horse Trials in the lovely Cheshire countryside and enjoyed a wonderful weekend with both Future Illusion and Future Genie jumping double clears in their respective sections. Future Illusion ran in the BE 90 class and had the joint top dressage score in his section of 29.5, which he followed up with a double clear sj and xc. As he had to compete HC because Jeanette is over qualified for this level, Jeanette didn’t chase the time xc because the ground was quite firm and it would not achieve a result, so he just added a further 1.6 time penalties. If he’d been able to be placed, he would have been 3rd, and without the time xc he’d have been joint 1st.
Future Genie shone again in the Novice section, with a 25.7 dressage which she also followed up with a double clear sj and xc. She also added just 1.6 time penalties to her dressage score to finish on 27.3 over a strong track which included a step up, bounce to a brush at fence 3, a fence in the water, a broken bridge and a double of corners amongst other obstacles! We were delighted with the positive maner she attacked the xc and was rewarded with 2nd place in the section. From 2 of her 3 Novice runs now she has had a 1st and 2nd place, and has jumped clear xc in all 3!
