Area Show Jumping, thanks to Georgina Leavold for the write up
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes for #TeamVectis SJ.
To say adversity played a part today would be an understatement! Last night saw our first hurdle with poor Lauren's pony having a swelling to his leg. We all thought our prayers were answered when she had a second ride but at 7am this morning to realise the jabs had just gone out of date! 🙈
None the less with a team of helpers and supporters in Lauren and her family we headed off to crofton with Jane's fine words of: "don't worry you only need three to win!"
I think I then jinxed the team by joking; "No one can get eliminated in the first round as now we have three it will mean the team won't be able to jump the second!!"
Charlotte was in first and sadly (or frustratingly for Charlotte) Barney couldn't overcome his fear of the very scary Olympic Swimmers cut out fence.
I was to ride second and in a very busy electric warm up arena and a couple rodeo moves later I was hoping to stay on board!! Thankfully we got in the ring and Carrera switched on to her job popping the course to role an unlucky pole after loosing a bit of balance coming off a tight corner.
Abbey was last to ride and had a lovely round and having that same "pesky" pole I did; just loosing rhythm on the corner.
We are all a bit gutted we didn't bring back any placings and we could have done with a bit of luck on our side, but it wasn't to be today. That's horses.....🙄
As always thank you to vectis for sending us. Thank you to Tash, Katarina, Sophie and Kirsty for helping today we couldn't have done it without you guys.
Next focus....team training! 🐴
