    Cheeki! I had no idea you were going (cos last time I saw this thread you weren't :p ) so I didn't know to look out for you! But that was me in the red with a group of others going around the course hehe, we also saw Tam's pony gallop away with her fall! Hope you're doing ok...

    Missed Aly (darn it kiddo!), saw Dashy (congrats!) and Anna_Smiler (woman, your pony is the bomb! I totally love him, big congrats with his progress) and her 'possy' LOL - Jonty, were you around the people who kindly held our grey's while we walked the course? haha

    Nik jumped ok, had fun xc, but the 75cm was really flat so took a rail, and the 90cm I took a fall - the energy was just not there and it honestly felt like he was over it and he just stopped, no real excuse really but I think that's him chucking a tanty LOL :p Not the perfect day (looooooooong), but we'll get there...

    Aw Nick, I think i saw your fall in the 90cm. Hope you are ok! People were falling off all over the place during that class and in the warm up ring. I think it was a long day for some horses and they were getting cranky!

    Darn Cheeki! You should've given me a yell!

    Thanks Jacksta, I'm totally fine - was a very feeble fall LOL :p I think the long day (we were there at 8am) as just a bit too much of a long day *sigh*

    Oooo forgot to say that the Countryman photographer took mine and a friends photo, so we'll be in his section when it comes out haha! WOO celebrity-dom :)*

    My boy jumped so well. I am so proud of him.

    First round - training round. They put the pink stars in and we jumped it. YAY.

    Second round - 50cms. We went double clear and fast, I think I was the first or second to take some really tight short cuts and turns into jumps. Found out that I came second in the 50cms. YAY.

    Next, we went out and did cross-country. I was in Nickelodeon's group, Solly jumped so well, only one refusal but my nerve got in the way.

    We came back from cross-country and they called my name for the 60cms but thankfully they let a couple of riders go in front of me so I could learn the course. Next, we went clear but in the jump off we had one rail down the blue ponies jump. I got him too close.

    Then I quickly entered to 75cms because I felt like Solly could do it and we only have 2 refusals and got around the course which is a huge thing for me because we hadnt completed before there but we were elimated quite a bit.

    But it was a long day and my boy was really tired afterwards. but we bot had fun.

    I saw Amber Sunday there and said hello but I didnt see anyone else.
