Lakeland Equestrian: Horse Diaries

Faye and Miss Rolo strut their stuff!

Horse: Miss Rolo - May 11th, 2011

24t h April was a very special day for Lane End … it loomed bright and sunny, the first one of our local Area 14 a british Showjumping shows. It was a nice casual set off (for once ) as our classes didn’t start until about 1pm – there was even time for a specially barbecued (in the new special gas-that-attatches-to-the-wagon-barbecue sausage buttie¬†before we began.

Miss Rolo as usual was being her steady, well behaved self – looking all squeaky clean and newly polished for the camera.

The first class British Novice – one of the first times they have competed together at this height and what a corking job they made of¬†it …

British Novice – First Round

… after storming through the first round with a definite clear round, they entered the jump off…

British Novice – Jump Off

… true to form they made an equally triumphant job of that gaining a fantastic DOUBLE CLEAR – congratulations to them both.

Not to be beaten they decided to go the whole hog and jump their biggest competition to date and enter the Discovery (this braveness has been attributed to the watching of Tomb Raider and deciding that if Lara Croft could be that brave than how hard could a 1.05m track be!!)

Much to our delight (but certainly not surprise – we knew they could pull it off easily) they made an equally fab job of the Discovery as well and claimed another clear round …

Discovery – first round – clear

So here we go the Discovery Jump Off …

Miss Rolo and Faye’s Discovery Jump Off

… unfortunately they had 4 faults but a pretty round all the same … after musc video analysing it was a unanimous decision that those 4 faults were just bloody unlucky!
