The 3.30am start was well worth it on Thursday as we took Julie Lockey’s two four year old mares, Eaimbry Eleanora and Eleanor to do the young horse class and Josie’s Don Angelo to compete in he PSG with Becky.
For their first show ‘Nora’ and ‘Lainey’ behaved impeccably not only when ridden but also standing on the lorry for most of the day! Julie bought Nora as a yearling and is by Fidertanz and Lainey was bred by Julie and is by Furst Romancier. It was a very strong class with some lovely horses but Becky and Nora rose to the challenge and won with a score of 8.1. Lainey who is a couple of months behind Nora in her training also did extremely well and gained 5th place with a score of 7.48. These two are very excting prospects for the future 🙂
Don Angelo aka Donald ridden by Becky in the PSG scored an excellent score of 68.42% which considering he backed off a bit in the test is very promising as the score could have been much bigger. This put them into a very credible 3rd place and this horse has so much more to offer, Josie is a very lucky girl 🙂
Friday and Saturday was busy with Hannah and Becky training Eilidh Grant, Ryan Todd, Jess Knapton and Josie Gyllensward for their tests, they all had a really good show with some super marks and top three placings. We are very proud to have such professional young riders amongst out team!
I have to say Saturday night was fantastic and our LEGEND, Wallenstein stole the show with Becky in the Grand Prix music to Doctor Who. They brought tears to all our eyes. He won the class with 72% He loved the prize giving and tried to bronck Becky off haha
Caluna was also amazing and came 2nd with 69.29% Again it was a great test but she just got a little tense and sometimes likes to take over (must be a girl thing!)
The Grand Prix took place on Sunday with Wally and Caluna taking part. There were some top combinations in the class and Wally and Caluna were both a bit tricky after their very exciting night but still got some good scores with Wally getting 4th with 66.31% and Caluna 5th with 65.85%
All in all it was a very successful show, with so much potential from riders and horses from the yard. We would like to thank everyone that supports, works and helps at Moody Dressage 🙂
