News from Ian of the Horse Trials Championships in Northamptonshire.

‘ I rode Mr Glen in the senior open as an individual as we could not get a team together due to some rule changes at the qualifiers which meant that Matt Gibbs could not go to the finals. This was a shame as he Claire and Alyson had all done really well at the qualifiers and hence my point about the team being able to do well next year! 
At the Finals there were 75 in the senior Open in two sections. After dressage my 33.2 had me 9th in my section and 19th overall. The XC was quite easy but very few people got inside the time so with no time penalties I moved to 6th in my section and 9th overall. Show jumping caused a few problems with the odd pole coming down but my clear moved us to 4th in my section and 5th overall.
We need to encourage everyone to qualify as a team next year as it is a really good fun event!’
All best Ian
