On the way to the trot up we put Dave to good use for Equisox outside of Burghley House – I must admit that I was a little bit stressed that we would miss our spot but hopefully Dave got some good pictures for them!
He was very keen to be back in the main arena and set off in the biggest trot on the way back! He passed with no problems and I also managed to win the Burghley Best Dressed lady which is fantastic for Blues and Browns – a big thank you to them for kitting me out so well!
After that we went back down and got ready to show jump. I rode him up for that and he felt very good, loose and happy. He jumped a lovely round and definitely not too worse for wear after yesterday. It was really frustrating to have the gate down, but he jumped well and I have no complaints. So we have done another Burghley and completes seven 4*’s now so he is amazing!
We had one more trip to the main arena for the parade and he was very on his toes! He will come home and have a rest now and then pick him up again at the end of the year with the plan of having some fun show jumping him over winter before next year.
So now we are back to swap from the gold lorry to our own one which has been fixed (fingers crossed!) – a huge thanks again to William Moorhouse. So we are currently on our way to change everything over to our own lorry before coming back up the road – if we are lucky we will get home for 1am!
I’ve got three that are waiting for some entertainment when we get back and two new ones coming in for a little bit so it won’t be that quiet!
A massive thanks to Dave Cameron for all of his amazing pictures both over the weekend and over the season.
