September/October

Mike and Prophet at Blenheim

The last two months have been very busy on the eventing front as the 2016 season neared its conclusion.

September started with Mike taking Hilldown Prophet to Blenheim for the CIC*** 8/9 year old class.   Prophet excelled himself to jump round clear cross country so qualification for Badminton is getting ever closer!

From Blenheim it was then onto Osberton CCI** for Hector and Xavier and another fine performance across country helped to gain them a top 25 placing.

This ended Xavier’s season on a real high and three star qualification is now only one more run away.

Last, but not least, it was Melody and Rachel’s turn to shine at Aldon CIC*.  After a good clear round in the showjumping Melody stormed round the cross country to finish on their dressage mark.  A great way to finish the season with the Hilldown and Leighland horses.

However, we must not forget Ellen and Summer’s achievement’s this season as they too finished on a high at Aldon Horse Trials with a double clear in the Novice.  Ellen’s brother Killian was also flying high at the Horse of the Year Show so success all round.

The refurbishment of the stables and arena at Moor Farm is now complete.  Thanks to all those who pitched in and helped with the painting.

With the season now at an end, the rallies will commence once more on a Saturday morning alternating between flat and jumping.  Further details and dates can be found on our Facebook page.
