We are now up at Chatsworth and had a very trouble free trip up.  


First on was Crunchie doing his first 2* dressage and I was delighted with him.  I have never done sitting trot, worn top hat and tails on him, and he has never been in an arena.  So to make one mistake was quite a miracle and he ended on 28, a couple of points behind the leader.  Show jumping in the main arena was a bit of a big ask particularly in quite heavy ground.  We had quite a serious downpour and the ground has certainly gone from good to good/soft in most places.  He had three down but I was in no way disappointed.  He just got a bit stuck and was a bit tight behind, but he was really trying and as I keep on saying, it will all come together.

Yes I Can was in the Advanced short dressage and very unfortunately we were doing our dressage in a torrential downpour,  and he coped well with that but he didn’t go very well.  He did quite a few things wrong which he shouldn’t have.   We moved him into the Advanced and I am very happy that he will be going cross country tomorrow and getting the best of the mud.

Kazu is in the 4*S and did his dressage on Brookpark Vikenti, they did a very good test to score 26.  He did some lovely work and it was a great performance ahead of Luhmühlen.
Vinci de la Vigne is also in the regular Advanced and is on a score of 30, and I think everything is going the right way but there were a few little misunderstandings.
