We had a great time yesterday at Blenheim Horse Trials taking part in the British Eventing Cross Country Riding Skills demo with Nick Gauntlett in the “Attractions” Arena. Ali was quite bright when we first got over there but quickly settled and once in the arena behaved impeccably for her 6 years with all the stands and distractions, including the fair ground near-by, which was only scary when the merry-go-round started going round!!
We did simulated cross country and she answered all the questions with ease. Afterwards we had time for a walk round the shops and a look at some of the 3 star XC fences (so that we can dream of jumping them one day, hopefully in the not too distant future!!). Thanks to Alice, Mum and Dad for coming to support me and taking the photos and video. **NEW** Click here to view clip.
