You’re on my team!!

Circus Acts, Cruisings and the Call Up!!!!!!!

What a week it has been, after the final trial at Barbury Castle, I wondered if our performance was enough to secure a place on the team????? Electric Cruise put in a great performance all round, well except his circus act on the first day of dressage when I was determined not to score another test in the 50s, which in once sense I achieved – a 65!!! This was not however what I had in mind. I think I ‘overcooked’ him in the run up to the test and if anyone knows a ‘Cruising’, whilst they are very talented, they soon tell you to back off!!! Which is what Sparky did when he executed 4 lovely rears after the first halt in the CIC 3 star test. Good boy Sparky – not. However I put my hands up in the air and accept it was my own fault.

Redemption Day!!!!

We redeemed ourselves in the Olympic 4 star test and all the Irish Riders put in good performances in this class.


He jumped a lovely round in both phases and we left hoping that we had done enough!!!  Luckily we had and it was fabulous news for all the team, inlcluding owners Noel Good and Annette O’Callaghan. Wednesday was a busy day at the Offical launch with team mates and now the ‘head is down’ in preparation for the big day!!!Image
