Lauren and John Boy qualify for Newcomers Scope

Lauren and John Boy (Waltons Top Flight) jumped the class of their life today. It was the second round Newcomers with 107 competitors. The first two qualify for The Horse of the Year Show and top five go through to the Scope Championships so competition was fierce!  As Lauren went in she edged him on, ‘He isn’t listening today’, she commented on her way in but he obviously had his own agenda as he produced a foot perfect clear round, one of only about twenty. He followed that with another clear which put him in the final jump off with just nine others. Up went the jumps again, mum could hardly watch, some were up to 1.40m.  He jumped well but incurred 8 faults which still put them 5th, such was the difficulty of the course. This qualifies them for Scope where apparently they have another crack at HOYS. We’d better look in rule book! All very happy in Turville :)

The pair went to day four of the Addington Classic Summer Show on 9th July and got another double clear Foxhunter and were placed 3rd. John Boy is a little star!

Lauren and John Boy win their first Foxhunter

Lauren and JB competed at Addington again today hoping to get another double clear in the Foxhunter. John Boy jumped beautifully in the first class and picked up a 3rd and then followed that with a win in the Foxhunter.  Lauren was so pleased as he met every fence perfectly and made it all  feel so easy today.  All the hard work is really paying off now, lets hope they can keep it together for the ‘biggy’ this weekend!

Pascal in France

Samantha and Spring Pascal have made their second trip abroad. This time they are competing in the junior British Team and as an individual in  the CDI, Compiegne, France.

Their journey out was uneventful this time and all is running smoothly with Pascal taking it all in his stride.

Today, Friday, Samantha came 3rd as an individual  in the CDI Junior and was the highest placed British rider. Pascal went beautifully, but the pair made one small mistake and had one canter stride on a trot circle, this finished them on 66%. A fantastic result, we are all so pleased back home!
