Eland Lodge (2) Clever boys placings in 2nd, 3rd & 4th

Very long day having set the alarm for 2.10am but happy and worthwhile as the boys had a good day out.

Sir Papillon, in the Novice was placed 2nd having done a nice dressage test to score 28.5,

London 52, one of the new boys on the yard as in the BE100 and scored 26.5 in dressage with only .4 time to finish – 3rd place.

Calmaro also in a BE100 class scored a 24.5, clear and 4.4 time to finish 4th.

COR DE CYRKON stable mate to Calmaro was also in the BE100 scored a nice test 25.8, clear SJ {pcitured here thanks to Paul Mossway} but showing he’s a baby cross country today finished 29th.

A mixed day for ORATORIO II… He found the dressage test quite difficult with the harder movements so had a few mistakes but the bits he did well were nice, he scored 33.4. I thought he jumped well but had an unlucky rail coming out of the double. Xc he was a little over enthusiastic and lacking concentration so we had an annoying 20 pens when I had to do a circle between 2 skinnies on a turn a bit frustrating.
