On 10th May, I headed to White Rose County Show to ride for Paul Langrick in the coloured RIHS horse class (pictured). We finished 3rd, just missing our RIHS ticket by one place but will try again next time.
On 16th May, I took my Highland stallion to Northallerton EC to compete at dressage. Just 11 week broken and aged 4 he was a gentleman and coped with the busy working in arena very well. We were delighted to beat our test score by just over 2% and scored 67.61% - but I was beaming when it was announced that we had won out of 18 horses! He certainly enjoyed the Equilibrium Simply Irrisistible that was sent to us in the post the week previous, as a treat for winning! (See pic below):
On 17th May, I enjoyed judging dressage at Mill House EC. On 19th May, I had my first dressage lesson with Kirstie Parrish on Talisker Bow Bells which I really enjoyed. We are looking forward to two dressage test in June.
On 23rd May, I headed to Preston for ride judging at BSPS area 2b. It was a pleasure to judge alongside Cath Smith to judge the RIHS PBA and horse classes.
On 24th May, I rode at Hambleton Show and the highlight was scooping a RIHS Middle Weight Hunter ticket on Ballymoyle Wicklow Rose! See photos below:
On 25th May, I enjoyed a day's judging at a local show (see pictures of my champion and reserve below) and on 27th May I gained a second RIHS ticket in the coloured plaited horse class at BSPS Area 3a for Paul Langrick riding Final Venture.
