BE Dalston Green (1)



Dewey and I set off for Dalston Green at 5.30 am with good friend and super groom Tracy Thirlwall - We arived in good time to walk the XC course for a second time, which I found useful - chedked out the location of the dressage arenas, walked the show jumping course, got my hat tagged and paid my start fee - met up with my second super groom for the day Jo Greenup - We were ready - Dewey warmed up really well for the Dressage and did a lovely test to earn us a score of 30.8, we were warmed up in the SJ by BE80 trainer Charlotte Ridley , who did a super job and we went on to get a clear in our SJ round - next we warmed up for the XC where again the BE80 trainer was lovely (sorry but dont know who it was) and encouraged us over the fences until we felt ready to go - Next the xc course where the start lady counted us down and we were off - he jumped lovely with a few nerves and fear of the unknownit took us to fence 3 to breathe but by fence 5 we had found our rhythm and I felt able to kick on, from then on in he jumped amazingly well and we ended on a clear XC - I couldnt have asked for more from Dewey (Kilbricken Park) - My tentative start meant we ended up with time penalites but could not have been happier - Thank you Wobbleberry Challenge I have achieved my ambition to ride in a BE event and it was amazing - Good luck fellow wobblberries - prepare well and enjoy x Mission Accomplished
