Groomers Team Riders – Abigail Newbery’s Diary
Hickstead Derby Meeting, West Sussex: 20th – 24th June 2012
We left for Hickstead on Tuesday to get there in plenty of time to settle all the horses in and to get the Animo stand set up. I took three horses, Obligado, Olympia and Orixa, but unfortunately only ended up competing one, mainly due to the ground and weather!
It was my first show with Obligado and we jumped the 1.25m, on two of the days with just four faults, then with eight faults in the 1.35m on Saturday. I am just getting used to him, and he is getting used to me, but he jumped very well and I was very pleased with him.
