Fair Hill Dressage Day Recap
We fit Socks in before Simon. He doesn't start until tomorrow. I tried a new warmup plan with Simon who is historically quite hot. I was on an hour before our test. He was great...will be even better next time. We'll go for 1:15 next time. He finished up with a 57. I'm not sure what place he's in, but its a huge step in the right direction.
Beau was last to go. He was very good today. He had his best score to date sitting on a 30. Also not sure what place but its got to be pretty close to the lead.
We finished up the day walking the courses for tomorrow. The Advanced looks like a good last run before Jersey 3*. The 2* for Simon will be a good test but I think he's plenty ready.
The other courses looked good from afar. I'll walk them close tomorrow.
We start tomorrow with the advanced then 2*...on to prelim, training dressage and show jumping.
The photo caption reads something along the lines of.."the sparrows were terrified when Bacon hit his top gear in pursuit...he's now resting on laurels." Unfortunately I think the sparrows won. Nolan is simply resting as she does.
