BE Calmsden (1)
Well I did it, I still can't quite believe it! Calmsden BE80(T) was an experience I will never forget. I was utterly terrified following the XC course walk the night before but my wonderful coach and friend assured me that Riley would fly over them and I had to have confidence in my ability! We made it through the dressage, only 2 poles down in the show jumping and an amazing clear cross country round where the brilliant Riley was able to shine and do what he does best. He absolutely flew round, loving the incredibly large, solid jumps! It's hard to believe that 12 months ago, all I had ever done was hack. It just goes to show what you can achieve if you work hard and are determined to succeed. Knowing that you are raising money for such a great charity also gives you that extra drive to complete the challenge during those difficult days when things just don't go to plan and you feel that this challenge is just too big! To all fellow Wobbleberries - dig deep, keep training, it truly is an amazing experience and achievement.
