Well, it transpired that after my Chicken post, we have managed somehow to qualify for the Sunshine Tour Eventer Championships in September at Hickstead - Foxy was rather disappointed that it didn't involve Portugal or similar ... However, we are both thrilled and hope we get accepted. BUT it means that I now have two aims and I am not sure that I am up to it (Foxy is ...) So, yesterday we went to a clinic with the riding club I have just joined - am getting super keen - Wessex Gold. We had a blast - Foxy loved it, and I must not adopt the 'foetal position' before a jump, and think of 'someone holding my bra straps' in a vague attempt to sit up and stop everything hurtling downwards ..
Frankly easier said than done!!
