London 52 “Dan”~ WON ~ Leg 1 of ERM at Chatsworth House

I’ve had highs and lows throughout my career but the emotional rollercoaster I have been on over the past week has topped it all at both ends of the scale … I have never been as low as I was this time last week when my special boy picked up an injury at Badminton  but London 52 has picked me up out of a very dark hole this wknd by leading from start to finish to win the ERM at Chatsworth Thankyou to everyone who has been there to help me and stand by me

A particularly big Thankyou to Karen Bartlett and Keith Scott for trusting me when I told them 3 years ago that I thought I’d found a potential superstar but that I needed them to help me buy him!!!

& no forgetting Dacpo “Cal” who was also an absolute star, with a very impressive Dressage score of 24,  he jumped one of his best SJ rounds in very tough conditions and really didn’t deserve to have the last fence down … he just slightly jumped across it to avoid the mud!  He was foot perfect round the XC … so straight on his lines! Finishing 4th in a massive section.  Roll on Tattersalls … he’s had a brilliant prep…

What a weekend!
