So, a little introduction to start with. I’ve been very fortunate to have been given the ride on ‘Derrylackey Angel’ or Polly (who has been mentioned in previous blogs) to compete in affiliated BE events. She is a 14.2hh, 7-year-old, grey mare who has some serious potential. In our first event at Calmsden BE90 she jumped a super double clear for 5th place. She has just contested her first BE100 at Homme House and came 17th so an exciting future is looming! Our next event is the BE100 at Sapey. We might even sneak a Novice in before the season ends. Hopefully next season we might even get to go around a 1* or two.
Ben pony has had quite a quiet couple of months with all the Pony Club activities that have been going on. We did manage a trip out to Hanbury show where he got a handful of prizes in the ridden and in-hand veteran classes. He’s not been enjoying the hard ground (thanks to the unusually lovely British weather) so we have been carefully running him to make sure that he doesn’t pick up any silly injuries. He will now be heading to Moreton Show to compete in our first Royal International Open Novice Working Hunter Qualifier.
