Aldon horse trials

What a great start to the eventing season!!

It was a little misty on our early arrival at Aldon horse trials, but when the sun came out mid morning the show ground looked a picture.

The ground was perfect for the horses, and because the xc at Aldon is set mostly within a bowl shaped area, the viewing is always fantastic for owners and the public, so it was shaping up for a good day for everyone!

I had three rides all of which we’re competing in the BE 100 classes.

Midnight Ash, Kelsons Limited Edition, and The Night Traveller.

Midnight Ash was a little tense doing his first dressage test of the year.  His canter and walk work were lovely, but with his slight lack of strength still since retraining as a racehorse, unfortunately effected his trot which lost us a few marks.  He jumped a superb show jump round and I schooled him gently around the xc for what was a nice and easy introduction for him for the forth coming season.

Kelsons Limited Edition produced a forward and flowing test which gained him a competetive 28.3.

He followed this up with a clear show jumping round and an awesome xc clear.  He felt full of scope both in the jumping and the galloping which I’m hugely excited about as he travels up the grades.

This result gave him a very respectable 6th placed rosette.

The Night Traveller pulled off another polished performance!

He performed a rhythmical and consistant dressage test earning him a super score of 25.

He showed his experience in the show jumping where he just cantered around for an effortless clear.

Our plan was to go nice and steady around the xc for his first run so he added 1.2 time penalties to his final score finishing him in 2nd place.

So pleased that all of the horses jumped double clears.  This sets them all up well for their next competition which will be at Portman horse trials at Novice level.

Its a new course at Portman so I’m really looking forward to it!

Look out for these horses videos from Aldon on their profile pages, follow the HORSES link in the menu.

Show Jumping @ Summerhouse

We had a great days show jumping in the sunshine at Summerhouse EC

Kelsons Limited Edition was first out of the blocks and jumped a super double clear in the 1.05m class.  He executed all of the jump off turns, all be it in true steady eventer style, but this was good enough to earn him a very good 3rd place.

Next was the Newcomers, and it was turn of Midnight Ash, he again jumped a consistent double clear and had a really fluent jump off for 6th place in what ended up being a very competitive class.

Donder S jumped an immaculate double clear in the foxhunter, giving a smooth ride in the jump off which rewarded us with 2nd place, sooo close to winning!!  He then jumped his 1st 1.30m class finding the step up effortless, just one green mistake resulted in an unlucky 4 faults, but never the less very pleased with him.

Show Jumping West Wilts

Storm Blue had a fantastic day out jumping two immaculate double clears.  The first in the 1.05m, smoothly making all the jump off turns for a super 2nd place.  Then he trumps himself and storms the Newcomers for a win!!  Happy days!

To top off Blues performance, Donder S jumps faultlessly around the open to bring home another 1st rosettes.

Two super horses and very happy rider today!!
