Fortunately the weather cleared end we could comfortably watch him achieve yet another lovely clear  in the showjumping section. Even more exciting was that he then went on to go clear in the cross country section. Unfortunately a rider error meant that a fence was missed out so the result was elimination. However we are totally thrilled with his performance over such a track.

24/04/2010 Happy birthday Hannah!! The birthday girl and Spring competed at Bradwall today in Spring's most testing 100. Spring completed his dressage with a score of 31 and then did a very nice showjumping round with just two time faults. The xc was the most spooky course he has seen to date but he rose to the challenge just being a little green over a ski jump where he stopped to have a look. We are delighted with his progress, as this was quite a testing 100 and he sailed round the rest of the course over some quite scary fences without taking any of the longer options. Well done Spring and Hannah, their next outing is in two weeks time.

18/04/2010 Well done Spring and Hannah for coming ninth at Kelsall Hill BE 100 today! Spring was in a decidedly cheeky mood today and did not deliver his usual polished performance in the dressage as he fell over half way through and then decided to have a buck for fun whilst cantering! He then thought that this showjumping lark was dead easy and it was time for a gallop which resulted in him having two down (naughty Springs - he has such a big jump he needs something bigger now). He then calmed down slightly and did a very nice xc round with just a couple of time faults. Spring and Hannah are now looking forward to their next outing at Bradwall.

25/03/2010 Hannah arrived at Draycott after a three hour drive only to find it had been cancelled! Apparently it was waterlogged - oh dear. Spring's next outing will now be Kelsall Hill.

13/03/2010 What a day! Springfield Symphony did a lovely dressage test, independant viewers were very complimentary, unfortunately the mark was not good and was one of his worst at 37! He popped round the showjumping having just one error and having a fence down. He then had a great cross country round with just a few time faults. Although he was not highly placed, due to his dressage score, we were delighted with him and are really excited about his next event. Well done Spring and Hannah!
