Another early morning with four to ride this time. Sheen contesting his first Novice, with Dotty and William joining him at that level, and Bounce having a run in the BE100. Sheen and Dotty both jumped double clears with Dotty finishing third and Sheen eighth. I was thrilled with both. Sheen was a pleasure to ride, and Dotty is so so classy!! Clockwork Bounce jumped a lovely double clear for tenth. He is such a sweet horse, and deserves to find a nice home. I retired William in the show jumping. He was simply not enjoying it and I didn't see the point in thrashing him reluctantly round. So a mixed couple of days but I am so pleased with a win!! Thanks to Marie for her help, and to Hazel for use of her lorry... so nice to go to an event in style! Maria does a brilliant job of keeping everything on the road at home in between time as well! Somerford Park with Boz this weekend, let’s hope we can keep the winning form up!!
