All in all it was a good show, on the warm up day Newtown Samson (my Dun Pony) came 3rd in a very competitive 1.20 class and he jumped the massive National 148cm Final and came 3rd! We did have a pole in the first round but there was only one clear so we were placed high, it was a very challenging course! Unfortunately Dereen Flyer (the Grey Pony) had 1 pole in each of his rounds but for a 5 year old he jumped very well!

Also I have some exciting news! We have welcomed a new pony to the team, she arrived at The National on Wednesday and came home with us yesterday! She is a 9 year old, Tricoloured Mare and her showname is “Patch

 

work Poncho” but her stable name is Stella.
