    Brilliant day, thanks to all the organisers. So proud of my big bold handsome Homer :) the open course really suited us.

    I was 46 on the bay in yellow and green. 1st time round the gate gave us some grief, (after having to wait a minute for the rider in front) we wanted to jump it! 15secs off the optimum time so pretty happy.
    2nd time round caught up to the rider in front faffing with the gate again, just circled it, said to mark me for the 60points and kept moving, cleared the rest and flew around.

    Will the scores be online anywhere? I left before the final scores were up, Id love to know my time, I smashed it around the second time!

    I saw red out there, but also some others with cameras, any know who they were?

    I just want to say Thank you to the oranisers for such a lovely day. It was fun and I had a great time. My pony was super having 2 clear rounds and coming second in the over 17yrs 65cm class. I got a voucher to the stockfeed store which is fantastic :D

    To all the rider's who fell and got back on for there second round and blitzed it well done. It goes to show that even a set back can be over come as I know I saw a few people who did just that and were so happy once reaching the finish line :))

    I did however see things I would like to have not seen and would hope that most people care abit more for there horses than to do what we had the witness :( To the Organisers well done for the way you were dealing with it.

    I had a good day, Ponys first ever competition. Clear in both after a few arguements/green pony issues. Was very proud of her making it around the 80 in her first competition with not one hesititation. Did the gate no worries both times and walked calmly into the traffic hazard. Im so proud of her and myself!

    You've all got alot of guts! saw several ponies come flying back accross the paddock, tho no ambulance flying on course, so hopefully everyone was ok**)

    Had an absolute ball! Fantastic day well done to Boony and Swan Valley PC for a very well run day and finishing when it was still light! :)
    I had a 7th and 8th placing in the 80cm classes i was very pleased with my boy as it was a harder course than horsemens and we dont train for x country so i couldnt have been more pleased! and I had a 3rd placing in the 65cm on my friends little mare Jess :) a very unexpected placing considering i didnt walk the course i was just following the orange numbers **)

    Once again well done to everyone saw some lovely horses out there, thanks again organiser and sponsors!!!!! :D
