Great day at Brook Farm.

Slipwood Iowa 1st show, 1st Win - well done to Phoebe Blackwell for riding her so nicely.

Rachel Shaw won the restricted open on Drummore Hazy Mist and Sophie O'Keefe with Lladian Lisa Lan won the juniors.

Also the first ridden show for Ottersbrook Diplomat, ran out of petrol but looked super at times!

 


10 Classes contested:-

Started the week with Cwmythan Easter Express in the Section C class gaining a credible 6th with second highest performance mark.  Then Andor O jumped a fabulous round over David Coles exciting course, having an unlucky pole and finishing 5th in the evening performance.

Onto Friday and Andor O back in the main arena in the ridden Lightweight Hunter class.  He gave a super ride for the judge and finished 8th.  Then to Justines' debut in the Arabian class.  Riding H Naharra for Susan Rose, she behaved impeccably and looked after her jockey around the busy Top Spec arena. Unfortunately, no prize for her but Sues other horse Ralph ridden by Vicki Myronidis, went beautifully to finish 4th.

Saturday began with an early class for Caroline Durdins The Senator.  Going brilliantly as usual and ending up 11th in the placings.  Lastly in the afternoon came Ann Leftleys' Beware Chalk Pit ridden by Rebecca Court.  He took the Top Spec arena all in his stride and finished 8th this time.

Sunday brought the Riding Horse classes with Natalie Buckleys' Burberry IV and Beware Chalk Pit both going beautifully, finishing just outside the rosettes.  Shelley Wheelers' Updown Chusan competed in the Non Native Chaps ridden horse class getting a little excited in the ride.

And so to the end of the season......Time to rest and reflect!

 


We enjoyed a dry day at Suffolk starting off very early for the ROR class at 8am - 28 entered and most came forward into the Grand Ring.  Rebecca Court rode her ride for the season, Beware Chalk Pit, to be pulled top and remain there to win the red rosette.  Well done! Pit loved the big ring and looked a picture.

Next came the Riding Horses and Natalie Buckleys' Burberry IV having his first outing for 2016 - he made it a winning one to stand top throughout with lovely comments from the judges.  Justine then rode Beware Chalk Pit in the large section to also stand top.  Rebecca deputised on Chalk Pit in the Championship to stand reserve to Justine on Burberry IV.

Changing the tack for some jumping, Burberry then went on to have his first attempt at the Working Show Horse class.  He jumped a fab clear and won the class!

Caroline Durdins' The Senator had an outing in the Lightweight Cobs to stand second, again in good company.
