Lovely weather at Aston le Walls for the Festival of the Hunter National Championships, and Sally and Tocka’s Treasure, Sally and Pride of Kashmir, Andy and Millthyme Sambucca and Catriona and Give me Grace were all ready and well organised for their Challenge 90 team final. The show jumping caused plenty of problems with a choice of fences and a tight time – the cross country rode pretty well and the fearsome double of corners caused very little trouble. Our four were not victorious – Andy and Sammy had a bit of a discussion at the jump just before the water, and George (Pride of Kashmir) took a little while to stop gazing around in wonder – Tocka’s Treasure lived up to her name and jumped a double clear – looked really happy with all fences – the odd time penalty but great jumping – and Grace went like a rocket – jumped splendidly double clear but a tad too fast………on a day when many failed to make the time!! Catriona was 13th individually (hundreds in it) and she and Grace were also 2nd in the Working Hunter – and her In the Pink Veteran class was very strong but her 22 year old (not Grace but can’t remember his name – so sorry) was a very good 2nd. So – a good day, and they looked extremely smart in Club colours – well done all!
