Last weekend we had the 2-day champs on for the Summerland Dressage Group. We had a great day.
- Cc won the advanced tests and the champion too, she got 66 and a 68%.
- And Sydney did his Preliminary classes and got Reserve Champion, with a 68 and a 72%.
- Basil got 4th in the Inter2 with 61%.
Found out Basil was a bit sore, think a muscle, probably doing his acrobatics in the paddock, and we had to scratch from the GP on the Sunday… gruu. But maybe that is why he did not win the Inter2, although we did still score a 63% from one of the judges!! Poor Basil, he is just such an honest boy, always tries for you.
My Darling, Penny girl (A Heaven Sent) did the Novice tests, and well… in the first test, the jockey, mmm, who is she some crazy girl thinking she can memorise 10 tests for the weekend, and YEP, made 2 errors of test and still got a 65%. But wised up and asked Skye to call the next one and she came a very very close 3rd… So yep, Penny probably would have come home with a better championship result, but oh well, you do learn from your mistakes eh…
Still, it was a supa day. There were four competing in the Big Tour, which is great for our Regional Champs. And all up, there were five Basil Babes in the Novice!!!
