• Mondial du Lion 7yo International Championships

    Having had about 24 hours to get back from Holland with Matrix - Anna set off in the lorry once more, this time with the lovely Nel (Spring Sensation) for the International 7 year old championships, which was abandoned after the dressage last year due to a burst river bank and extensive flooding.

    This year the conditions looked good, and again, everyone at the yard was excited about the last big competition of the year.

    Nel - fit and ready, and Anna, a bit battered and bruised after her fall at Boekelo arrived in France after a long journey. They settled in and Nel was in fine form... The dressage score was a little disappointing, as Nel usually does a great test, but everyone was looking forward to the cross country - The course was riding reasonably well, and Nel started strong, but for some reason just went straight past number 4! Anna managed to pull her up, turn her round and she jumped it beautifully. She went on to have one more run out in the cross country and 2 down in the showjumping, but Anna was really very pleased with Nel's performance on the whole - Anna rode the whole competition with cracked ribs and a cracked collar bone, so really - they did very well indeed to get round in one piece!

    So - its been a really great season - the horses have been out pretty much every weekend, and have performed fantastically. They are all having a very well deserved rest and Anna managed to have a week off riding just to let herself get a bit less sore - needless to say, she was back in the saddle after a few days!
