Mentone Combined Training

Didn’t place but didn’t come away empty handed from today winning a handy and tasty price in the raffle , being a bag of oaten chaff.

The showjump course was well built and well up to height. Even though it had rained most of last week, the ground held quite well being a sandy  loamy sort of soil. Shame about the showjump warm up being way too small for a horse Occy’s size. It was jump, slow, turn, start again, jump, slow etc. So he didn’t really find his stride until halfway around the course. 2 rails but there weren’t many clear. And after Occy treating the first part of the dressage like the start of a Crosscountry it didn’t really matter too much. At least we’re back out there.
