Thrilled to bits with Dynamo on his last two runs.
West Wilts he was double clear round the BE 80 track, a few time faults XC as he’s not ready to go fast, but he did prove he can go XC in sticky mud. Jumped his first bank and was brilliant at all the combination fences, including the water, all of which which were well dressed with bright flowers and trees.
Then the week after at Ledbury Pony Club ODE he again went double Clear, He was really bold XC although I went a bit chicken and took an L fence at the water as the direct route was a large box really close to the water, more of a 90 fence and I didn’t feel he was ready, but then he jumped the skinny alternative so boldly I felt a bit silly doing the chicken route!!
He finished in 10th place and won the best dressage award, had I jumped the direct route at the water he would have won as his dressage score was 26. He did a superb test, he has become really easy on the flat over the last few weeks. I have worked on getting him more forward, plus a better contact as he has matured is giving him a more secure overall picture. I think he is going to be a very solid performer at 90 and 100 next year. He has two more events to do and then is off to join Captain for a couple of months winter holiday.
