    Dash had a good day :) he went double clear in the 50cm, and placed third (dash was living up to his name and didnt want to have brakes haha) In the 60cm he went double clear, i forgot my jumpoff course but so was looking at my arm trying to figure it out haha *#) we still somehow managed to place 4th but? i only did one shortcut lol

    He was a star in the x.country training :D did almost all of the intro1 and 2 jumps :)

    I ended up going, only just got home. The Dgrade SJ didnt finish till 5.30!

    Took my boy xc and i was so happy with him, jumped quite a few prenovice and 1* fences and he took it all in his stride! Had a great day!

    I didn't end up taking Folly as he looked a bit scratchy in the paddock yesterday morning - I am guessing from being silly in the wild weather the days before. He looked fine yesterday arvo and this morning but decided I didn't want to take the risk.

    So I went and dragged Aly on a walk around the XC course instead :D

    I met Tammy07 but didn't introduce myself ;) Watched her do some BIG jumps, but missed the stack :p
     
  14. the walk was fun :)
    them jumps where huge :eek:

    missed your stack too tam! bugger :p

    Was that the stack on the xcountry near the water jump?

    I saw someone come off just near the water.....they where ok though...!

    We had the best time ever, I think we did about 40 jumps in total, did just about every jump three or four times....great fun!

    We had a pretty good day. Arrived at about lunch time but still didn't get to jump till about 3pm lol. My horse was a little fresh - probably due to not much work during the week due to the weather - she freaked out in the warm up arena when another horse was coming towards her and I fell off in the dirt pmsl....lucky the ground was nice and soft. I got back on and she was ok and ended up jumping a feral but clear 90cm round, don't know how in between the pig roots etc. We jumped a much nicer 1.05m round, clear and came 5th so all up it was a pretty good day. I didn't stay for the D grade as the light was getting bad.

    I didn't see any other stockies there, sounds like some of you had fun out on the XC.

    Does anyone know who was taking photo's for the jumping?

    :))

    Tammy - I thought I recognised you!! But I didn't know if you were coming or not ... so didn't go say hi :p

    Jed looked awful :( I saw him 3 days ago, and he was ok, but he's dropped so much weight and just looks shocking. He didn't want to stay behind alone so he came for a walk around the course. I ended up riding Hon :eek: What a champ :D Did the water jump (even jumped out) and a few others, Jed just plodded lol.

    I *think* I saw Dash, tho I'm not sure. I Was waiting for her to say hi if it was you lol! I'm pretty sure I spotted Nickeloden in red ...

    Mirawee - was that you with Aly when you came over to meet Hon?

    Good day for us :D Besides almost rolling off Hon a few times (logs are scary lol) and Jed being ill.
