This is just one of those happy and contented posts. Went to the fun ride yesterday with P on her 17.2 ShireX. Last minute, Jill decided to come which was great. Only my third time towing without Dom so I had company. Albi is a lot more hot-headed these days and can be a wound-up handful for Jill but yesterday the stars were aligned and everything went like clockwork. Everyone behaved. We were all suited in terms of wanting to trot, canter or gallop together and the only flaw was at the end when we reached the jumping field and Albi flatly refused to jump anything that wasn't near the exit back to the trailers. Nappy little sod. Unfortunately, due to a lot of rain on Thursday, Lincomb had wisely decided to close off their two main XC fields to protect the ground but Gracie and I still had a quick hoon around the ones in the top field (they'd added a few extra).

Great organisation too. The route was clearly marked and they even had a complimentary cold drink truck halfway round. We also got a rosette and a creme egg on completion. I shall go again!

Slept like a log last night.

And..... can you believe it..... not one if us remembered to take a single photo!!!

Just to add.... this photo was taken in Oct 17..... not long after I had had my brain retraining and Gracie and I were learning to jump. At the time it seemed HUGE to me.... and wide!

Sounds great! I went last year and it was *very* busy so decided to give it a miss this year. I think I saw the official photos on FB this morning - maybe you could link to yours if that is allowed?
