Great Weekend!

The weekend of the 31 March and 1 April had us seeing more than our fair share of Myerscough.

On Sataurday we arrived at 8.30 am for a busy day with the three new recruits who excelled themselves.

Sport Horse Classes were first and Dartans Borrack the lovely five year old Kelly bought from Louise in October excelled on his first outing to win. Noble Grand Conan won the six year olds, again a first outing for him, Borrack stood Champion Sport Horse. He not only recieved his first rosette but first sash too. This clever boy was put away to think about his mornings work.

Next up was Noble Grand Conan, this time in the HOYS qualifier - yes a strong ask but he coped admirable just having one down. We have high hopes for him.

Borrack was called upon again for the Novice WH, a strong class of 33. He jumped and went beautifully and won again - he likes red ones!!

Finally it was the turn of Pearl Underwoods Autocrat. He jumped a great clear in a huge restricted class, he then went on to win the class after going beautifully for the judge.

Championship time and Dartans Borrack, this time ridden by Caroline tok the Championship. Two sashs in his first days showing - he can come again. the only bad bit was the photographer wiped all his photos so no first time out pictures for theses babies.

Three tired big beasts home and a turn a round for tomorrow, O and a 50th birthday party in between!!!

Next day  BSPS Area 2B

This was the first show of the year for Abbie Schofield and Noble Boulaurouge. They didnt disapoint winning the Intermediate Novice WH and going on to stand Champion Novice WHP. well done Abbie great start!

Abbie also braved the open IntermediateWH and again jumped clear to finish second, Will Prince won this on Noble Loughnatousa (Emilys pony from last year) it was lovely to see her out going so well.

Ruby was next up. After being ready far to early we thought our little jockey may have peaked however she did a great job to win her class (Lead Rein SH) on Charn secret Legend. Ruby was thrilled with her £6 prize money and Easter egg (Thanks 2B).

Last but by no means least Claudia Benitez and Iiar Max did the M&M Novice and Open Large Breeds WHP and finished second and third after jumping two great clears.

Well done everyone xx 

This week we decided to miss the BSPS Winter Champs and head off to POYS Show Jumping Finals at Bury Farm, then Nick and Emily head straight off to Fontainbleau in France where Emily will be competing - that is when she has returned from her school sking trip!!

Louise is home from Ireland for a couple of months with a hat full of eventers to compete so its all go at Thornton Farm.
