Badminton Dressage

The dressage dream test didn’t quite come off which was frustrating as that is something that Lillie is strong at.  She warmed up really well with Tracey Robinson, I couldn’t have been happier with our warm up and I thought we were posed for a good one.  Frustratingly she stepped back in her first halt, so straight away she started on the wrong foot.  My father always said you only have one chance to make a good impression and my first impression was not what I had hoped.  She started off on a bit of a down mark and then really struggled to claw back much even when she went well, which she did do, she did a good test.  She got rather stuck on a seven if she was lucky which was frustrating.  We have ended up on a score of 30.6 which is her worse mark at 5* level so I am naturally very disappointed.


But I am still very pleased with Lillie and hopefully 5* eventing is not all about dressage so I shall be looking for a good day on Saturday and Sunday.  The cross country course is interesting, asks lots of questions. It’s a real Badminton course with lots of places to catch you out and will require some very careful walking.
