A couple of photos and videos from the past few weeks. We Went to Weston lawns showjumping last Saturday and did some training over the 90 and 1m and even got a rosette and then a video from monkeys and mine first 100 together at Solihull❤️ can’t believe there’s only two events left, I’ll be counting down the days until it starts up again! 😱
So we had a very early morning at 3:30 to drive down to Frickley ready to walk the BE90 xc and showjumping course😴We got a harshly marked dressage of 36 and then a double clear sj and xc with some very costly time faults, to finish 12th! He jumped so well round a very technical course, popping them easily. Thank you to the best support team ever 😘#teammonkey 🐵!
So unfortunately we never made it to Aston as Monkey managed to get himself kicked but with a week and a half of treatment we managed to get him to the Pony Club Championships! So not an ideal prep as we missed a lot of training and competition practice! I had such a great time, the atmosphere was amazing and everyone was so nice! In our 1st round we had one pole and then unfortunately when I walked the course the night before they hadn’t put the timing in so I circled after the bell went and went through the timing so quite a few penalties were added and it really didn’t reflect his round🤦🏽♀️lesson learnt! And then just 2 unfortunate poles in the 2nd, one was most definitely my fault. But it was a great experience and I was so lucky to be there and have such a great team and to have stayed over at such a nice venue. Fingers xd we can qualify for the eventing next year🤞🏽
The best set of photos from shelford ever 😂 monkey got a kick in the field a couple of days ago and his knee has swollen up a lot, so sadly I’m probably going to have to withdraw from Aston and then cross my fingers that he’s better for the pony club championships ☘️
Monkey was brilliant today at Stafford BE90 with a pb in our dressage for a 28.8 even getting some 8s for our canter work, and a double clear showjumping and xc with 1 time fault for going too fast even with my nice new stopwatch! To come 7th out of 33 ❤️. Thank you Stafford Horse Trials for doing such a great job on the ground!
Had a good day at Eland getting a pb in our dressage for a 31.3 which is monkeys second ever best score! Then did a really nice showjumping round just having a bit of an argument round a corner which meant we got a bad line into the next fence and had it down. Then a nice steady clear xc with time faults due to me not wanting to hammer him on the ground. Thank you so much to eland lodge who did so much work on the ground and luckly it wasn’t hot until after my xc 💁🏽♀️❤️💃🏽
Had an awesome day at the PC Area Showjumping qualifier. Getting a clear in the 95-1m second round to help the team to 3rd place and qualify for the Pony Club Championships!! ❤️ Monkey jumped amazingly especially as we had to do two rounds and a jump off which bemused him slightly 😂 Well done Team Quorn!
Had an awesome day at speetley BE90. Getting a 40 dr because of our little arguments then two down in the sj, the first pole I asked for him to shorten his stride too much and the second we went a bit crazy and got the second part of the double down🤷🏽♀️ then went and stormed clear round a full up beefy xc 8 seconds inside the time 💃🏽
So finally our first BE event! So proud of monkey in the BE90 at Shelford yesterday! It was soooo hot - 31 degrees in the box! ☀️ Got a 34.5 dressage and a double clear with just a 0.8 time penalty which dropped us from 8th to 12th (crazily close) I’m so so proud of him❤️❤️ thank you for the motivational video @anna.imogen 😂
Swipe for some photos 👉🏽. Me and monkey had an amazing time at rockingham pc 90 team showjumping. I was so proud of how monkey reacted to the crowd and shops and how grown up he was, super excited now for the rest of the eventing season! He unfortunately just had the 1st part of the last combination down but we got into the second round where we had one obvious pole but barely touched the other but the team still got 3rd!! Well done to the rest of the team who all jumped great❤️ and well done to all the other Quorn teams, who jumped fabulous rounds!
Swipe for video 😍 monkey was awesome at chatsworth 90 arena eventing and wasn’t fazed by the big atmosphere! He just got really strong to the last showjump and got it down but went clear round the xc! If we hadn’t had the pole then we would’ve of been 5th❤️ #bigeastergiveaway
Had a nice sunny day at norton for our first 90. Slightly lacking oomph in the dressage but plenty of go in the showjumping and xc! Just an unlucky pole in the sj at the bogey fence and some time faults as the time was very tight but I didn’t want to burn round and rush Monkey out of his rhythm. And then had an amazing clear xc with only a couple of time faults! ❤️
