We arrived at 6.30am and after giving my horse, Nat, a quick spruce over we headed down to find the arena, if I hadn’t of found Shirley Stagg I think I would have got completely lost!! I warmed up and Nat felt good! Shirley Stagg finished her round and I was called to go in! I was so nervous, understatement of the year!!! Nat jumped the most fantastic clear for me in a decent time! It has got to be up there in my top experiences!

It was a fantastic day had by all, Finn Valley team 2 came 12th, team 4 came 24th, team 1 came 30th and team 3 came 80th! Out of 120 Teams Finn valley represented themselves well as always!!

Thank you to Julia and Barbara for organising as I would never have got the opportunity without being part of such a fab club!!

Roll on next year!!!
