So the last time I caught up with you I had just been around Moreton.
But earlier on in march, we spent 2 lovely days at Aldon International Trials.
We had a very early awakening therefore, the weather wasn’t ideal at 6am in the morning! (All the things we do for eventing!!)
I was on Ester at 7:20 in the morning ready for my 8:10 test. I think being the showcase for several minutes was far too exciting for Ester;) So we produced a tense test, but our scores are certainly improving. We received a 34.3!
The showjumping was very twisty and well up to height causing many problems! However Ester pulled out her keen socks and jumped a fabulous clear round!
The cross country replicated a big and bold course but rode so nicely! I took an alternative as all of this is simply training! So, I wanted to stay safe and help to build confidence. But we jumped a lovely clear just followed up with 2.4 time faults.
Unfortunately, we didn’t finished up with an Olympic gold medal but 14th is more than expected and personally, it’s a positive place to be stood. We only entered Aldon (and others) as training for the rest of the season, plus it was a very competitive section with some of us separated by 0.1! But I am more than happy!
Ester then had a handful of lovely relaxing days off in the sun alongside Sheldon (Glendelough III) who is also part of Team Liles.
Ester and I have many things planned for this Easter holidays ( every time I look at the word Easter I always thing its incorrect – the compact of Ester) But yes, lots of things planned and lots of sweeties and her essential luxury items we indulge her in! She definitely deserves it!
Very happy to have seen the Eventing Worldwide’s executive Jess! And received the most beautiful bloggers gilet which I was overwhelmed to recieve! couldn’t be more happy to be part of the EWW bloggers team!
