Well as it was a long cold day but enjoyable and nice to catch up with people and also be able to easily watch two rings.
The best bit was that JaiJai came 1st in Grade 3 Jumping to phrase what Dennis Mc said "You won that with a f...... twizzle" he he ! Well it was a little bit tricky for a grade 3 with a speedy weave entry, a pull through and some other handling areas. JaiJai having won out of Grade 3 a few weeks back at Lune Valley as there are not many shows at this time of year it was Roger and JaiJais last Grade 3 so nice to go out with a bang.
Fleet had a 9th in 4/5 Down and Out.....he would have done better as we got to the same bit as quite a few others but I was a bit slow getting back to the finish jump cos I was getting tired after so many obstacles! Had a real if only in the 4/5 Jumping as Fleet ran by the pipe tunnel which was the last obstacle, am sure it was my fault as I should have stood my ground and we just had a 5r in the 4/5 jumping.
Roger had a clear with Josie in 4/5 Jumping but she had one very wide bit and it was a speedy course so no time for being wide.
Its Cadburys blog but he had no runs but he did come in and have a bark at the collies going round!
Nice to see wins from Arthur and young Glynn in the Grade 3 Down and Out if I remember correctly they did 34 obstacles and Shaun with Grace won the 4/5 Down and Out doing one more obstacle than Fleet and getting back to the finish jump rapidly too!
