    apart from landing on my ass twice... i was still pretty happy with how my two went. Rebel was a bit off with the fairies and kept neighing to her friend back at the float, in her sj ended up with 2 or 3 rails from 2 rounds of 65cm so was stoked! Hunter just got 1 rail from 2 rounds of 80cm.
    Reb jumped clear XC but i stacked it near the sunken road, she did a massive shy which i just could not stick to haha its a lonnnnng way down. hopped back on and she was great
    Hunter pulled like a train the whole way, jumped great until the steps/chevron and decided he didn't want a bar of it and parted company. got up, hopped back on, got over it and kept going lol.

    would love photos if you have any Jodie :D

    Had a great day... my young boy continues to surprise me. He did so well, was a bit jumpy at the start but no nastiness/dirty tricks. SJ went well, a few cat leaps but more canter and only one rail down- better then four at Log Fence:)

    XC was awesome- no refusals and cantered most of the way, so honest. I could pull him up so easily and I felt comfortable that he was going to nick off on me..

    Lauren- No worries at all, I am just glad that Bess is ok and didn't hurt herself- she is an awesome horse, I love her to bits and so does Leon!! Leon is a pretty chilled out dude so he wasn't that worried.

    Lakota- I watched your SJ round and then went to tack up and didn't bump into you for the rest of the day... will catch up next time. Vegas looked great SJ- so cool, calm and collected.

    Oh and I forgot--- thanks heaps to Shiralee for the use of her cheek strap!!:) I put the bridle back together and Lauren has it. It has taught me to take a spare bridle with me!!!! I have everything else spare but a bridle.

    Thanks heaps, without that I wouldn't have been able to do XC:)

    Hehe Lauren I think Bess got rid of your nerves on the float trip down- don't think you would have had any left after that*#)

    Leon got rid of mine, stepping on his bridle... what a crazy day, at least we all came out of it ok... A few lessons learnt today

    was a very good day, managed to fall in the xc warm up, but got back on and kinda did a little hoon in the xc to get the bugs out. No refusals was good. and was so proud that we jumped into the water first shot after refusing going in water twice this week. Thanks Shiralee for the stirrups, they are now in the crate in the shed, sorry i forgot to give them back.
