Still Winning

Had a fab weekend at a Hartpury BS show. Ruby came 2nd in the 90 with some hot competition in the class, she even won money £20.

For the next class I had asked for special permission from the judge to jump first, as I had to take my lovely Dad for an important appointment. We jumped first and amazingly Ruby jumped a fab clear, it was pretty nerve wracking going first as it was a big class and all the other riders like to watch the first horse jump, everyone wants to see how the course rides.

Home pretty quickly and off to Redditch for Dad’s appointment. Then a few hours later, sat in the car in the middle of Redditch and, with the wonders of the internet, I get a photo from a friend telling me Ruby had only gone and won the class, another £35 won and she is now lying in the top 25 Show Jumping horses in the West Midlands Bronze League. What a little star she is.

Hartpury was a 2 day show and we went back the next day, a rail down in the 90 meant no prizes this time, but a double clear in the metre gave us a 5 more points towards our Bronze League placing.

Her winning jumping round can be seen here.
