Gill Baker & Lowrie
BE 80(T) Little Downham (3)
I bought Lowrie 18 months ago as a happy hack until I rashly signed up for this challenge. We have spent the last 10 months preparing and there has been some blood, sweat and a few tears along the way. Lowrie is the most honest and genuine Irish bog pony and having done a few unaffiliated events we were as ready as we were ever going to be. The show jumping was the phase I was looking forward to least and it was a big mistake walking the course before dressage - I have never jumped anything so wide. I shouldn't have worried, we left all the poles up but did get 2 time faults. Xc and I had decided to have one attempt at the ditch then take the alternative if necessary but despite some very scrappy steering by me at a couple of the doubles we completed on a double clear. Hannah has been inspiration to us all and thanks must go to founder Wobbleberries Julie and Sally who have given us all this wonderful opportunity and to raise funds for such a worthwhile charity.
