Stand Up For The Champions …

Horse: Mr Grey - May 4th, 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.

Mr. Grey was on top form he was chilled, had a pleasant, relaxed journey and was as clean as a whistle (always a novelty for mr. Grey (NB. ‘note to self: NEVER buy a grey horse!’)).

He stood like a gentlemen to have his studs fitted – a first time for him to our knowledge and performed well in the collecting ring – jumping well clear of his 90cm target.

Into the ring he went and managed a lovely, steady clear round … 

Mr Grey and Matthew Mayvers – British Novice

Thinking that it would be fab to come home from our first outdoor show with a double clear they went into the Jump off and made a sterling effort with another lovely round …

The Winning Jump Off! 

only to go and win pulling in the first  Lane End red rosette of the outdoor season …

Before the next class Mr. Grey went and had a bit of a chill in the wagon a well earned pint (of water).

Coming into the collecting ring for the second time, before his Discovery class, he naturally took it in his stride andnd again was jumping well clear of his 1m target – what a little star!

Mr Grey and Matthew – Discovery First Round

Into the ring – same old jumps different order and height he did exceptionally well and put in a second lovely clear round …

Mr Grey and Matthew – Discovery Jump Off – Winning Manouveres!

Much to our extreme delight the prize money was theirs again pulling in the second Lane End red rosette of the season
