Knight with shiny trailer

I was booked onto a XC clinic today. But The Buddymobile is still at the garage. Thankfully my friend became my knight with shiny trailer as she offered to take us.

It was at another new venue for us. I was a little apprehensive to start off with as our last XC outing wasn’t the best. After a shaky star t and a bit of a peptalk, we were soon flying (in a good way). And finished on a really good note.

It was very undulating, so felt wonderful to let Buddy gallop between the fences. We conquered tyres (Buddy’s nemesis) and even ended up giving another combination a lead up and down the steps.

We’ve got a 8 weeks till the Champs, so lots of training and competition on the cards for us.

Now we all know I love a montage. And this is some montage!!

I guess it serves me right for wearing a Christmas Jumper with reindeers on it. Buddy obviously felt I needed a flying lesson.

I wasn’t kidding when I said the photographer captured my fall. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Even by my standards, it’s pretty impressive.
