Not going to ramble on as its too late
Went jumping again today, and they were back out on grass
If i'd known, id probably have done the 70cm and the 75cm..but i'd already entered so was stuck with 75cm and 80cm
Started warming up and he was being a right pain in the neck. Leaning, pulling, trying to bolt, bouncing up and down on the spot etc.
Managed to get over a few practise jumps, and then jumped off to walk course. Got back on and he was much better!
Took him in and went clear
Went into the jump off, 4 faults - one down - but that was my fault for not
riding forward enough.
It was a long wait whilst they sorted out the next course, and it was quite warm.
He was so tired by the time i took him back into warm up for the 80cm - he was shattered bless him.
Had a chat with YO/RI who was also competing and we took the attitude of we'd paid for it might as well go in and see how we get on, in case he perked up a bit
Had the 2nd fence down as it was jumping from light into dark, and he was tired and it just didnt go to plan. Also had a run out at the last jump, as i left it too him way too much and he just couldnt do it on his own

The 3rd video isnt working atm, will try and get it sorted and uploaded :/
And also - i want to have a word with whoever thought it wasa a good idea to put a pond in the middle of the arena!!!
Feel free to critique - How is our canter looking (we've been working on getting it bouncier, but it all seems to have gone to pot as he was so strong
