Urbanus II competed at Keysoe in the Open Novice section. He scored a 26.5 dressage and double clear. We went steady as the ground was a bit hard and incurred some time penalties to finish 4th. Louis then competed at Dauntsey Park where he got a great dressage score of 23, two down show jumping and went clear round a technical cross country course to finish 6th after some time penalties.
Weston Park Festival of Youth was our last event of the season. The manor house was surrounded by vast parkland which I found myself sprinting across with Louis within minutes of arriving at the event as we were extremely late for the trot up after getting stuck in traffic! Louis settled in well and enjoyed hacking round the estate and meeting new friends. The weather was freezing, I have never slept in so many layers or multiple sleeping bags!
Louis did his best dressage test ever and got a great score of 36.2 which put us in second out of about 80 competitors. The cross country rode brilliantly and we finished with a very quick clear round. One of the fastest of the day! Unfortunately the showjumping let us down, poles were taken out which dropped us down the leader board from second.
It was a great event and I cant wait for next season!!!
