Almond RC dressage & SJ show, Sat 13th March

Team Hopalong went along to Almond RC's dressage and SJ show yesterday at Kingsbarn.

First up was Prelim 13 dressage test. Warmed up beautifully but we both got a little tense when we went next door to the arena. :( Judge seemed to like Heidi though and we managed mostly 6s with a couple of 7s and a couple of 5s to get 60.8% and 4th place! (and there was even more than 5 people in the class! :p We were up against about 15 others, so very pleased with that)

Cheeky pony giving Bob a big grin while doing a beautiful free walk out of the arena at the end of the test after jogging in the one that mattered during the test! ;)

We then did the 85cm and 95cm jumping classes in the afternoon and Heidi loved every minute, she felt great. :D We did a double clear in the 85cm class with a couple tight turns in the jump off and the only clear in the 95cm class to win them both! :D Heidi was very pleased to see that the winner of each class got a giant sack of carrots, so she will do her best to munch through those!

Enjoying her lap of honour!;
