Groomers Team Riders – Emily’s Diary
Nelly did very well at her second ever event on Sunday at Calmsden, which was a Pony Club one day event.
We achieved 35 with the dressage, just the one down with the show jumping, and a clear cross country round with only a few time penalties, a lot less than the amount we got recently at Larkhill. We would have finished 9th by my working out if the placing had gone down further than 8th. Was very happy with her and I cannot wait for her next event at Milton Keynes.
Lottie went out and completed some dressage on Saturday. Our first test was not particularly successful – she just got a bit tense as usual. In the second test however it was like riding a completely different horse – she was calm and relaxed and performed well. We finished third here, a good result I think.
