Groomers Team Riders – Abbie’s Southview Diary
Southview CSI***, Cheshire: 29th June – 1st July 2012
This show incorporated the second viewing trials for the Europeans. We only took Valentino and Cornetta here as Olympia is having a break from competing so she can compete throughout the winter season. On the first day Valentino had a double clear in the 1.35m and Cornetta had a clear round in the 1.40m which I was very pleased with. On the second day, I jumped the accumulator with Valentino and had an off round with two down and the joker, which is very unlike him! Cornetta was meant to compete in the 1.45m, but unfortunately got bitten just where her girth would go and it was a bit sore, so we did not jump her in the end. On the last day I only competed with Valentino in the 1.40m, and finished 15th with a sensible double clear.
